Cool, now that your jetpack is put away in your garage where you keep your flying car; how did the aliens save us from our own destruction? Did they have this hyper advance vacuum that just sucks all the greenhouse gases out of our atmosphere?

To future Geof,

First of all, turn down the thrusters on your (hopefully) solar-powered jetpack. To read this, I need your full attention, and I hope your attention span got better 33 years from when I’m writing this. I know well-enough that you get distracted easily in things that matter the most; in fact, I could say this about society in my time. Did we get better? Or, is there still media opposition regarding equality? Sheesh! I long for an answer regarding this question since at the time I’m writing this, we are still squabbling and putting minorities under oppression. But y’know, it’s not like we are going to put a bigot in office two terms in a row, right? RIGHT!?

Cool, now that your jetpack is put away in your garage where you keep your flying car; how did the aliens save us from our own destruction? Did they have this hyper advance vacuum that just sucks all the greenhouse gases out of our atmosphere? Do they look like squids? Big brains? Or, is it more like an Avatar situation rather than District 9? Send pics and instructions in how to build aforementioned vacuum.

I’m trying my best here. Ok, perhaps not — I just had a ribeye cut yesterday, seared it with thyme. It was amazing. I hope we didn’t eat all the cows because I heard that their fart contributes to climate change — or something like that.

I don’t know.

We don’t know.

Seriously, help us. We do not know what we are doing to our planet.

Sincerely,

Non-wrinkly version of yourself.

P.S. By the way, how did the aliens receive that we found kneeling in front of a flag disrespectful but wearing it as underwear and putting it on napkins as an approbation? Never mind that. I just want to apologize to the future for our banter.

More Messages to the Future

 

My grandchildren,

I promise to do my very best to educate your parents as best I can.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will do everything I can to help fight against climate change.

 

Dear future me,

If we don’t stop cutting down trees for agriculture and to build houses then the future generations will not think about trees when they hear the word Earth.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I promise to encourage myself and others to recycle more.

 

Dear Future Self,

More than getting through a global pandemic that has already taken hundreds of thousands of lives around the world, our true feat is even larger: to secure our long-term health and the health of the ecosystems upon which we depend for life. To do that, we have to cut our emissions in half in the next ten years, and continue to reduce it beyond that. And to succeed in that, we need to fundamentally shift the way we do EVERYTHING.

 

To my dearest Gabriel,

What gives me hope is what is yet to come, what you will experience in your lifetime.

 

Our Promise

I will turn my gas transmission into an electric car!

 

To My Future Child(ren),

The fact that you are reading this means that you would know the answer to a question that has kept me up at night more often than I would like to admit: Did I make you proud?

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The road I learned to ride my bike on, the field where I kicked my first soccer ball, and the park I ate my first ice cream cone at, could all be gone.

 

Hi buddy,

I can now see that the solutions are there, that a transition of the magnitude that is needed, is possible.

 

I pledge to use less plastic.

 

I pledge to use less plastic!
