Dear tomorrow’s me and to anyone who may read,

Although 2020 has been a wild year, we must never forget that small choices and changes can collectively lead to a profound positive effect on the future. With global climate change posing a huge threat for the future, we must remember to make decisions that benefit the long-term. Buy LEDs instead of fluorescent bulbs. Watch TV in one room. Reduce the amount of electricity we use. Buy local produce and fewer processed foods.

I hope that the government is able to finally make a movement away from oil and fossil fuels and towards renewable energies. If the government is able to enforce better environmental regulations on companies doing huge damage to forests and land, as well as large amounts of carbon dioxide emissions. I hope that someone in power will resist the lobbying of large corporations and actually take steps to save the Earth.

In the future, I promise to be more mindful of the products I buy. To companies, what speaks words better than our money? Buying power of the consumers has the power to change the world. We must demand ethically and locally sourced products that do not exploit the labor and resources of the Earth. I promise to buy fewer processed foods that emit fewer emissions. I promise to be mindful of the amount of time I spend watching TV and driving unnecessarily short distances. I promise to put in the effort to find out where my food is coming from, rather than just automatically buying the cheapest items.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear child,

The journey of humanity does not take us to Mars like the world now likes to believe. It takes us home to our true self where there is no separate self. Where we are all one. You know all this. Look after yourself my child, look after your brother, your friends, your children, all the animals and the whole planet. Love them like there is no tomorrow.

 

Dear future Child or Grandchild,

Climate is undeniably changing but it is not top priority.

 

Dear Gorasia descendants,

I will do all that I can, and hope my fellow inhabitants join my pursuit, to nurture this planet.

 

Queridas crianças do mundo inteiro,

Pedimos que vocês procurem fazer como nós e continuem essa luta de colaborar com nosso planeta: evitando o consumo exagerado, usando a tecnologia para o bem, plantando árvores, economizando água e poluindo menos.

 

To my Kids,

I wish you all the best and always make sure that you can be proud of yourself and don’t need status-symbols for feeling nice.

 

Dear Thomas,

When you look at me with those big beautiful eyes and that innocent smile, you make me want to fight harder. And I do.

 

To my darling ones,

And it’s not that I don’t care. I care deeply. For you three, and the families I hope you will have one day; for the many beautiful places I have had the privilege to know, places which take my breath away, that fill my heart with a bursting joy and connectedness to something so much greater than I, places I know may be quite different when you are my age

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will opt up to deep green

 

Dear Alex and Vivian,

This is my most important work.

 

Hello spawn,

I am small now littles and I may be small forever but in my small ways I will fight for you.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I hope that environmental issues are a thing of the past.

 

Minhas lindas,

As causas das mudanças no clima são tão profundas e envolvem tanta gente e tantos lugares.
