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.

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate promise is to use a refillable bottle, bring my own resusable spoon/form wherever I go, use clean personal care products (without chemicals).

 

Dear future love,

A culture of consumption is the reason that my world faces such an ecological crisis, it is both necessary and proper to address the fundamental mindsets that have created such a destructive culture.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I’m not allowed to talk about climate change around family; as my mom warned me, “climate change is not something that people think about in Mississippi.” But I’m worried for my family’s future.

 

Dear Tara,

I am sitting in a classroom thinking about you. Which is rare for me. I hope that our family has taken some initiative to do something about changing society instead of building robots and large houses.

 

Dear My Future Child,

I want to sculpt a world for you where you can play outside without gas masks, an ocean to swim in without toxins, and a thick lively forest for you to wander.

 

Dear Nephew,

I believe i have truly played my part in raising awareness and practical solutions to climate change.

As I’m sitting here trying to think of the best words to say to you all, I am thinking of one major thing: that I can only hope that you all get to experience the incredible beauty created by our planet.

 

Greetings 2050 earthling,

Starting in 2015 I committed my life to sustainability.
