To future generations,

In the present, the world is facing a problem where we heavily depend on fossil fuel. The burning of the fossil fuel is the primary cause of the world’s global warming pollution. Especially in the U.S., we use a majority of our energy source for consumerism rather than necessity. Because goods and services are easily accessible, we often forget about the carbon footprint and how it impacts the planet. We can begin by switching to solar energy, avoiding purchasing unnecessary goods, cutting down the amount of meat consumption, reducing transportation or driving electric vehicles. I hope in the next several decades everyone takes part in changing environment before the damages on Earth become irreversible.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Hailey and Lily,

We know about this. If we don’t fix this for you, it’s our fault.

 

We will look back on our time here and ask, “What did I do?”

If we truly live our present moment, maybe you’ll have a future.

 

Dear Kaydence,

I will keep trying Kaydence, I promise. And I hope we can look back together in 2050 and smile, knowing that our Earth is healthy once again.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will only use renewable energy.

 

To my children – Chase, Maya and Harlan

I hope that we manage to change the system really soon, while there is still time. So that you are not left with the mess, and trying to fix something that you didn’t cause. I hope we figured out a way to be kind, and caring for others who will suffer more than us. A way to let go of the greed and look at ways we can help others rather than take from them.

 

Dear Future Self,

It was 2020, the year I realized that life is fragile—not just mine, but the entire planet—through immense consumption, pollution, greediness, ignorance, false bliss. This wasn’t the way I wanted to live my life, so I promise to actively make the change.

 

Dear Alba:

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

 

Dear Zhengqing Gao,

Fortunately, you didn’t get injured while the wildfire burned your school.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to contact my local officials on passing measures against climate change

 

Dear son,

Everyone should be grow at least 100 trees in his lifetime.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Love, help and build a future in unison that benefits and protects the whole world.

 

Dear ACS, LG, CM, MCD, AH, MS, AS, GL, and ERD,

I commit to demanding that politicians that want my vote, my time, my substantial help and expertise are people who seek to address climate change seriously and talk about it boldly.
