To future generations,

I am so sorry that there were so many people in the world that didn’t believe that climate change was real. Unfortunately, you inherited a world very different from the one I was born in. There were plenty of scientists that warned us about what was coming, and many grassroots movements that tried to make changes to stop the world from going past the tipping point. Based on news stories I read today, it appears we have reached that point, and not enough governments and/or people willing to make changes that would back away from the tipping point.

I just want to say that I’m so sorry

More Messages to the Future

 

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 grandchild,

There is a place on this planet called the Amazon, and I don’t mean the online shopping site (is that still a thing in your time?).

 

To all the children of the future and those who love them,

While there is still breath in this body I will give of my soul and my time and energy to making the world a better place, for you, and all the beautiful living beings of this world.

 

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.

 

Dear Alex and Vivian,

This is my most important work.

 

Dear Yasmine,

I tried to teach you of the importance of being satisfied with what you had within your hands.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to try to set up crowd funding for grants to people with realistic proposals to fight climate change.

 

To our future generations,

I want you to know that some of us do care and we are working towards a better future for you.

 

Dear Future Explorers,

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

 

Dear friend,

I will fight for this cause and I will never ever give up because we, the youngsters, are the hope.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to buy organic food and run more and bike more! (I could use the exercise.)

 

Dear Future,

We need to work to save our beautiful home.
