Dear Tomorrow,

I’m writing this message with one hand. With the other hand, I’m holding our 9–month–old son who fell asleep a few minutes ago.

I know a bit about how our individual day–to–day actions and how government policies are leading us and the earth down an irreversible path. I try to use a bit less energy but that’s about all I do. I don’t change my research topics or actively engage in advocacy work or make more substantial daily changes to what I eat, how I travel and what I do. Deep inside, I might be believing that this will somehow be solved by technological discoveries. And maybe also thinking what difference could one person make anyways. But so much of it is just laziness and apathy.

So yes, I knew about climate change and how dramatically it’ll affect my son’s and other children’s futures but I don’t do much about it… Sounds bad when I put it this way, doesn’t it…

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Rowan & Tristan,

I promise to do everything I can as a daughter to our great Mother Earth to protect her wildlife and trees.

 

Dear future niece or nephew,

We loved hiking, camping, biking, swimming and playing as kids together.

 

Dear People Of The Future,

It’s scary, this is the stuff you see in movies about the end of the world.

 

To the future generations,

I will stand on the streets, in the courts, and in the schools to encourage awareness and empathy for the earth.

 

Dear Future Cassie,

I promise to be successful and help save the environment.

 

Dear Josh, LeeAnn, & Jessica,

I am very proud to know that You will treat Our Earth, Our Natural Gift, Our Playful Backyard with the same Awesome Respect that We give to each other, as a Family – Knowing that Our Earth, is Your Child Now.

 

For those who come after us,

This is for the countless children I already see suffering the impact of climate change around the world, and the generations to follow.

 

To my Dad,

I hope on this Father’s Day, my 24th birthday, and the rest of days, we remember that the most basic part of life is living happy with the ones we love. Acting every day against climate change will allow us to keep that simple piece of humanity.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to try to set up crowd funding for grants to people with realistic proposals to fight climate change.

 

Dear friends,

Rather than exploit it, destroy it, poison it, why don’t we just enhance the beauty of it, guard it, and love it?

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate promise is to stop using electricity too much.

 

Dear Finley,

I wonder if in 2050 we will be looking at a future where fear from the changes at hand has caused people to hate rather than love and provide hope. Perhaps in that world we will we no longer comprehend the biblical texts in a meaningful way. Will climate change be the end of the epoch of God?
