Hello Future,

It’s hard to imagine what the world is gonna be like tomorrow, let alone a few decades in the future. I can only hope that in the future, the world gets it together. Right now there is so much uncertainty and violence in the world, I hope we can get to a point where things are more peaceful and predictable. As of today, the White House has finally somewhat acknowledged the fact that climate change is a real and human caused thing. I believe this is one small step in the right direction. I do hope that things keep moving in this positive direction. I do believe it will, simply because I don’t think we can possibly regress any further. Additionally, I hope that we start to make progress towards FIXING the problem that we have caused. Instead of the debate being whether or not climate change is a real thing, hopefully in the future there are conversations revolving around what more we can do to counteract the effects of climate change. Hopefully those conversation also include ways to assist those who are most effected by climate change.

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will encourage everyone to get OUT of their cars and onto public transit.

 

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 Future Afnan,

You should make a time machine and come back to past and solve all the problems.

 

Dear You Tomorrow,

What we failed to do, at least early on, was to see how important it was to put those solutions together. To combine into a way forward.

 

To the People in my Future Life,

Anytime I’m at the crossroads of life, I pray that I, or anyone else in the same position, will keep you in mind, and try to shape a world that’s the best possible for you.

 

Dear Alyssa,

I pray that more and more fathers will realize that to love their children well, they have to love and respect the ecological systems around them too.

 

Queridos filhos Heloísa e Henzo,

Tenho muito orgulho da minha função (agente de fiscalização ambiental do Acre) pois é através dela que posso dar um pouco do meu suor, para que no futuro ambos possam ter um lugar melhor para viver.

 

Dear Alba:

There is still a lot of beauty and I will do what I can to keep it from slipping away.

 

Dear Future Explorers,

I am often faced with the question: why do I care so much about this pale blue dot that we inhabit?

 

To My Future Nephews,

I want you to see those corn fields in the north, the beautiful beaches down in Florida, and the stars in the woods at night.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will use less fossil fuels.
