To Future Rel Klein,

Dear Tomorrow,

I believe by the year 2121, the world will look very different. I think the world into the 2020s and 2030s will be so focused on technology and having expensive resources, that we will soon run out of resources at the same time the climate hurts us all. I believe that places like Florida will go under water and other places will be unlivable due to earthquakes and other natural disasters by 2121. I believe we will run out of water and run out of food and soon more and more people will be infertile due to contact with toxins and chemicals. The world will be dying but there will be a savior.

Unlike most rich people who use their money to make more money, there will be a savior that will use their money for good. They will use their money towards helping the environment and the way of living on what is left of the world. They will change how people live and make money and the social climate. People will follow this person and there could even be a new religion created out of this person. People will follow in this person’s footsteps and more people will want to do good, and therefore the Earth and its people will be at a point in which they are happy and can sustain life, but there will not necessarily be more progress. Soon the world will learn that the only way that there can be good in life, is if they take away progress. If things change on their own then so be it, but it’s the searching out to have the most progress, and trying to be the highest power, which kills the future.

Without this savior, the world will crumble and soon there will be no food left and no babies born. The world needs a savior, because it all starts with one person that is powerful and has the resources to actually make change, that unfortunately I do not have. There needs to be an economy somewhere between capitalism and communism, and needs to be a society where equality is the norm. We need to take values from the Crakers, without turning into the Crakers, and still be human. We need to learn that the way we are living right now is not right, and there needs to be a change because the path we are on is only doom. We need to accept that it’s going to take a lot or there won’t be a future.

Thank you,

Rel Klein

Please know that I have tried very hard to be one of those people, to even make the smallest of changes in order to improve the world for you and your future.

I hope that you start doing things that will help the 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 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.

 

Dear Potential Future Kiddo,

To think that my choices of sustainable commuting, eating a plant based diet, and working on our City’s zero waste program likely pale in comparison to the impact of not having a baby is nothing short of devastating.  Does it make me a bad environmentalist to honor my maternal instincts?

 

Dear Maya,

Maya, my love, I promise to be courageous. I promise that when I face a decision, I will think of how it will impact you and your future. I promise that I’ll also step outside my individual decisions and add my weight to the forces that shift culture and systems.
