Dear Tomorrow,

We hope that this letter finds you well, and that you are able to be proud of the world we have left you. Today, I see that as a hope, but not realistic. We are hurting this planet at an alarming rate. The beautiful animals we see on the endangered species list, may just be pictures in a textbook to you. I pray this is not what the future will show. I hope you never see an emaciated Polar Bear, or extreme weather that is starting to plague the world. We are working to change today. We are working to recycle, retrofit buildings, and raise awareness through education. Every day I feel the change getting closer. However, I hope this change begins to grow. If not, I hope your generation does not follow our footsteps. If we don’t make the change, I hope it is not too late and you can change the narrative for us, and for the world of your tomorrow.

Dear Emile and Eloise,

The beauty and majesty of the world of your childhood is as remarkable as the beauty and majesty of mine, but the fragility of your childhood world is so much greater.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate promise is to use a refillable bottle, bring my own resusable spoon/form wherever I go, use clean personal care products (without chemicals).

 

Dear future me,

I’m doing this work because I see it as the best way to save and improve as many lives as possible. I’m doing it so you, 2050 Ryan, can look at yourself in the mirror. And so you can tell your kids and grandkids someday that you did everything you could.

 

To My Children and My Future Grandchildren,

People are an amazing race and, if we have the will, I believe we have the ingenuity and resources to fix the harm we’ve done.

 

People of tomorrow,

Your path will only be as clear tomorrow as we have made it for you today.

 

Dear Future Ryan,

I promise to be a knight in the campaign of truth seeking.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise composting in my house and getting an EV for my first car.

 

Dear Annie and Eric,

I hope that this life of good things is not just yours to enjoy, but that you also have decided to fight for others to have this life, too.

 

Hallo Clara,

Was wohl der Klimawandel im Jahr 2050 macht? und wer gerade in der Politik ist? Bei uns macht der Klimawandel gerade Vollgas und an der Macht ist Angela Merkel, seit 16 Jahren
What will climate change do in 2050? and who is in politics right now? Climate change is at full throttle here and Angela Merkel has been in power for 16 years.

 

To the wonder,

Dear tomorrow, thank you for letting me ride the wave of wonder that reaches toward you for all generations of all species to come.

 

Para minha querida filha, Vitória,

Consegue compreender que estamos aqui de passagem e que temos por obrigação apenas tomar emprestado, evitado excessos e principalmente agradecer.

 

Dear Future Me,

I hope that when we look back on these years,  you’ll see that humanity can be good. That we joined together and fixed it because of we don’t, who will?
