Hello future people,

I am sorry we are not doing enough to move towards green energy. It is unfortunate that we have to fight for clean water, greenspace, basic housing and clean environments. Greed has moved humans towards our doom. I have done much to move towards being green. In little ways I have tried to impact my carbon footprint. I use bamboo toothbrushes, I shop local and organic, I drive as little as I can and I take action in green bills and laws. However, it always seems no matter the march or the vote I take on my ballot, someone with a bigger wallet buys the vote. We still suffer from those who deny climate change. I see the greed of Monsanto, the oil and other powerful companies.  We see the struggles of Standing Rock and the damage done to Puerto Rico, yet we deny our earth is sick. I have little hope for what change we have done by your time. I am unsure if we have created better ways to get our energy or if we have moved to becoming a more sustainable world. I promise you I will continue to fight even when I am tired and I feel as though there is no point.

“We did not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.”

Dear Tanuj,

The time has come to question ourselves as citizens about our own actions and the legacy we are leaving behind.

 

Dear Madeline, Ava, and Harper,

What I wish most for you girls is that the care you have shown each other would extend to the big wide world around you.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I’m not allowed to talk about climate change around family; as my mom warned me, “climate change is not something that people think about in Mississippi.” But I’m worried for my family’s future.

 

Dear residents of Bedminster, Bristol UK,

We hope we did enough

 

Dear Tomorrow and Dearest Lex, 

I do believe that the collective power of everyone’s best efforts can curb the worst effects of climate change, and provide you with a more stable and secure future.

 

dear future people (:

I hope that people are still enjoying the wonders that nature has to offer.

 

To my grandchildren,

Ahora vivo en la ciudad de México y cuando debe de llover no llueve… cuando hace calor de verdad hace calor.

 

Dear Alex and Vivian,

This is my most important work.

 

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 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 Children and Grandchildren,

I see a world full of hope fueled by the desire for change.

 

Dear Me of 2050,

I promise that I will plant more trees in places where there are none.
