Dear Tomorrow’s Generation,

It is 2018 and the exponential grow of climate change is finally catching up with the world. Every year more temperature records are being broken, more reefs are decaying, and more fragile ecosystems are dwindling. If there is one thing I urge you to preserve, it is the great biodiversity that is present only on earth. It was by chance that life even came to be, and it is of upmost importance to preserve all forms of it. Imagine a place where humans are the only living organisms in the universe. All our food would be lab produced, and humanity will have officially removed themselves from nature entirely. That is a depressing reality but is very possible if current trends continue. Ideally humanity should life in a mutualistic relationship with nature. Through holding the survival of other forms of life, humans will remain a part of nature. If limiting air and water pollution succeed, and begin to tilt the other direction, then the rest is not too far out of reach from being fixed.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Eleanor,

It seems silly to saddle yourself with guilt for something that hasn’t happened yet. I don’t want to do that. As of today, I don’t really feel guilty. I guess I just want to make sure I keep doing more, so that when you read this, and ask what I’ve done since then, I can still feel good about my efforts.

 

Querida Alê,

Por você idealizei um mundo melhor e lutei incessantemente por ele.

 

Dear fantastic,

We as the human race are smarter than this struggle at hand and need to rise above large corporate interests and confusion on this topic.

 

Dear Future,

I will use less plastic.

 

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?

 

Dear Samuel, Willa, and Ben,

To the core of my being, and only through the power of community, I will honor the voices of the youth who are pleading, “Don’t burn my future.” Samuel, Willa, and Ben, your little voices I know, will join that chorus soon enough.

 

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?

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I’ll buy only food that I plan to eat before it spoils.

 

My Dear Paloma,

I’m going to commit to raising you with your eyes open. Being aware as much as we can, how to better our environment together.

 

Dear future me,

If we don’t stop cutting down trees for agriculture and to build houses then the future generations will not think about trees when they hear the word Earth.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to pick up trash at every beach I visit, use metal straws, take quick showers.

 

To the Three most Beautiful Souls I could ever Know,

I promise to keep your Love at the forefront of my every move. I will make personal changes and I will learn more, so that I can contribute to a healthier environment in a meaningful way.
