Dear Tomorrow, and my future family,

I am writing this in November 18, 2016 to make a promise to myself and my family in the future, to play a part in creating an awareness of climate change. I pray hard that when this message is being read in 2030/2050, the world would be a much better place to live in, a place without pollution, floods and mass extinctions. Today climate change has taken it for the worst especially in the bay area, nonetheless only some of us are taking a stand to face this real threat. What’s more scary is that many of us are well aware of its effects towards the future of our generation, and did nothing hoping for blind miracle. Therefore the purpose of this letter is to apologize for what my generation has done towards our home, the heaven given upon by us by Him was polluted that no man nor beast can step on anymore.

To apologize for the slaughter of all the wonderful species that might one day disappear without a trace. I am truly ashamed for the present that has caused so much destruction that was nurtured by our forefathers, there are so many more but many of the remorse can no longer be describe by words. However there is something that we, I can do now, to feel optimistic that we can change and recover from the mistakes that we made. Everyday, more and more people are helping bit by bit to help cure our planet from its fever, from using solar powered energies to power their home, to carpooling and driving electric cars. As a notable actor, Leonardo DiCaprio asserts “Climate change is real. It is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat facing out entire species, and we need to work collectively together and stop procrastinating.” Each and everyone of us is slowly but surely playing a role in this global theater, contributing their efforts to reduce the effects of climate change for our future generations to have a better place to breathe.

So being said all this, what did I do now that would help? Well I am still only a college student but that does not stop me. I have started recycling wastes, using energy efficient light bulbs, and supporting carbon tax. This may not contribute much but I am hoping that as I get old enough, I would hope to become a conservationist and voice out my opinions to everyone, passing on my messages to each and everyone. No matter what, I promise that I will not be quiet, nor make excuses that would not benefit either of us. I know that I may sound selfish by making it seem like I am only contributing because of you guys, but believe me that I truly care for what might happen to the planet and its inhabitants for years to come. I believe in myself that we can all make this changes and I hope that you guys will also believe in me. And lastly, I hope that after reading this message from the past, my feelings and desire would be pass on towards everyone and to generations may come. I hope that you all are healthy and doing well. We only have one home (unless your generation manages to create sustainable living on Mars), so lets cherish and protect it with all our might.

All my love.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Emilia and Tommy,

We, in our time, still have the chance to change course. We have the knowledge and emergent means, even the profitable technologies, to do so.

 

Dear AC,

I think a lot about where the right place to live is.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Don’t use plastic straws!

 

Dear Future Grandchildren,

I hope I can look you in the eye and tell you I honestly did everything I could to protect our planet.

 

Dear grandchild,

There is a place on this planet called the Amazon, and I don’t mean the online shopping site (is that still a thing in your time?).

 

Dear Potential Future Kiddo,

To think that my choices of sustainable commuting, eating a plant based diet, and working on our City’s zero waste program likely pale in comparison to the impact of not having a baby is nothing short of devastating.  Does it make me a bad environmentalist to honor my maternal instincts?

 

Minha pequena Nicole ainda não nos conhecemos, mas já te amo

Deixo para você o meu quintal onde o ar é perfumado pelas flores e árvores, a terra dá frutos e flores além de abrigar muitos bichinhos, a água é utilizada com consciência e o ser humano é respeitado e tratado como alguém que depende da natureza para VIVER.

 

Dear Gabriel,

When the worst consequences of climate change still feel far away today, or the barriers to acting on climate change seem steep today, I do not think about today. I think about you, and your world when you are my age.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will work to restore the wetlands.

 

Hey kiddo,

I’ll be here to tell you all the ways I have fought for the health of our home, and fought to protect all of the wide, open spaces for you to run in. When you’re old enough, we can fight together.

 

dear earth,

I promise those who walked the Earth before me and those who will walk the Earth after me that I will not stand by and let nature slip through my fingers.

 

Dear future child,

We’re presenting at conferences, writing articles, and organizing events with the goal of mobilizing our profession to act on climate, and to help them understand that it will deeply impact our mission to preserve history for future generations.
