To Future Leaders,

We currently struggle with climate change and the influence of Earth’s temperature due to burning fossil fuels, deforestation, single-use plastic pollution, and the effects of farming. All of this and more contribute to increased greenhouse gases that create a snowball effect worsening albedo, radiation, and heat reflection. We live in a time where it’s normal to breathe in aerosols that produce respiratory health disparities, and the world is not doing enough.

I hope that by 2100, carbon emissions are lower than now, and we have found even more energy alternatives than solar and wind energy. Although these are great alternatives, they are costly and, in some regions, ineffective. The world is in such a divide because of how much money is produced from these influential negative pollutions. An example of how widely interacted these influences are is creating single-use plastic such as the water bottle. Almost everything purchased comes in plastic that will be thrown away and not properly recycled. Although it is excellent that recycling is possible, we do not implement it enough. This is a continuous production of new plastic rather than melting down and recycling disposed of plastic. This increases carbon and fossil fuel emissions since plastic is made entirely from fossil fuels. The use of single-use plastic contributes to the melting of ice-caps, increased radiation, heat, and a rise in sea-levels.

I pray that by 2100 the world will realize that money will not be able to fix Earth. The only way we can work towards a better future is by implementing better environmental health policies now. Ending the use of fossil fuels and living off of local livestock and produce. The contribution from the travel of produce containing single-use plastic to our home alone will significantly impact our environment. Understand that we all need to contribute and make efforts to make this intense switch. In the long run, we will be sacrificing a little to gain a lot.

More Messages to the Future

 

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.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate action is to educate youth to create solutions for energy efficiency and conservation opportunities.

 

Dearest Finlay,

I hope you are healthy and happy and that you feel supported by the ecosystem around you because we are all deeply truly interconnected. We depend on the earth to take care of us, and nature needs us to take care of her in turn. We all need each other.

 

My dear Honeys,

I think every parent believes that their child’s future is worth protecting – because I know the power of this force in me and what I am willing to do.

 

Hey Kiddos!

My hope for you is that all our legislative efforts and care for the environment makes a difference so that we can wipe asthma out of our family.

 

Greetings 2050 earthling,

Starting in 2015 I committed my life to sustainability.

 

Dear Evan,

What has most inspired me to act is wanting to be able to look you in the eye and say, “When I became aware of the existential threat of climate change, I did all I could.”  Despite my pessimism, I act in the hope it can make a difference for future generations and all the precious life on our fragile planet.

 

To the generation after mine,

But when you encounter that resistance–and you will, regularly–know that you must respond just how we have had to these past 50 years. With love, and sternness, and most of all, courage. Because that is what the resistance fears the most. We who came before you promise that we will do the same while we wait for you. Know that you will never be alone.

 

I love you Earth.

 

Dear Thomas,

When you look at me with those big beautiful eyes and that innocent smile, you make me want to fight harder. And I do.

 

My future husband,

I want us to read this in future time and remember all the senses and views we witnessed.

 

Dear future me,

I am 19 years old, and I am angry.
