Hello World Here’s Your Ripple,

I don’t know anything about politics, I don’t hold vast knowledge on the environment (maybe little bits here and there), and I have no clue about the fate of the future. But, as far as I can tell it’s not the best outlook. Like most people, I can’t really see the thinning amounts of species, or the disappearing of forests, or the rising sea levels. I can only really hope that society wants to change for the better, not because of all these terrible events (of course that be nice) but just simply because it’s the right thing to do.

I do have goals for myself, one where I could climb out of this crazy circle of our consumerist society and just live. Obviously living has all sorts of meanings but as far as I’m concerned I just want to be okay and healthy. But when people are too afraid to even drink water with fear of being poisoned, is healthy even an option anymore? Did you know you can’t live off your land completely? Well, you can, you’ll just be arrested – at least that’s what I have heard. Maybe that doesn’t mean anything to anyone, but it’s sort of significant. Lately everything has been all about money. In fact, it seems like a good culprit for all these environmental issues.

It’s great that I can look toward the future and hope one day that I may have a family and that they turn out to be compassionate, loving, and understanding. Again, sadly, I have no idea about what the future holds for me or this earth. So again, I look back toward my goals and add another to the end of the list. I want to share what I have heard, seen, and learned. Although I may not be that activist marching the streets and creating petition after petition, I’ve had some pretty successful conversations with strangers at the supermarket. I like those little ripple effects, they seem to mean something.

So while I have been going all over with this letter, here’s what I actually hope for the future.

I hope that one day these letters will be obsolete and that none of these problems even make any sense to anyone. It’s sad that we even have to write letters about the crippling effects of climate change and the fall of so many environments.

More Messages to the Future

 

to my dearest children,

Our future is being made now, and I promise to do everything in my power to make yours safe.

 

Vitória,

Antes de realizar qualquer ação pense no meio ambiente para que suas atitudes sejam pautadas na sustentabilidade. Assim o seu pensar e agir localmente poderão resvalar na escala global.

 

Dear Nieces and Nephews,

I tried.

 

To My Friends, Family and Future Grandchildren,

I realize my reflection of the past, current and future state of the environment paints a grim and pessimistic picture, but I feel optimistic in our ability to turn planet Earth’s fate around if we all work together and commit to making a change.

 

Dear Levon,

I hope, as your father, I’ve done enough to instill within you how science is a wonderful adventure.

 

dear future people (:

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

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My promise is to continue to dedicate my life, my business, and my future to creating cultures that embrace environmental action not only for our own good, but the good of the countless other species hurting from climate change.

 

Our Promise

I will turn my gas transmission into an electric car!

 

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.

 

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.

 

To my future self,

It is today on March 6th, 2017 that you have made the decision to make a difference in this world.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will work to restore the wetlands.
