To future self,

Today we live in a world that revolves around money and power. Those who don’t have these two privileges lack a voice to be heard. As life on this planet exists today, nature is slowly but progressively disappearing. Certain species are becoming extinct, sea levels are rising, and temperatures are increasing at an exponential rate. This is clearly a problem but why do people not address it? Yes, there are many problems occuring in the world right now but is climate change insignificant? How can these so called “more important” issues be addressed if there is a possibility of no tomorrow?

I hope you are living in a better, cleaner world. I hope people have realized that we are the ones causing the problems that we claim not to be ours. I hope endangered species such as pandas and tigers are growing in number. Lastly, I hope we convert to a renewable energy world.

Dear future family and friends,

This is our house.

 

To My Children,

Is the world really polluted?

 

To my Dad,

I hope on this Father’s Day, my 24th birthday, and the rest of days, we remember that the most basic part of life is living happy with the ones we love. Acting every day against climate change will allow us to keep that simple piece of humanity.

 

Dear Gabriel,

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” – The Lorax

 

Hallo Clara,

Was wohl der Klimawandel im Jahr 2050 macht? und wer gerade in der Politik ist? Bei uns macht der Klimawandel gerade Vollgas und an der Macht ist Angela Merkel, seit 16 Jahren
What will climate change do in 2050? and who is in politics right now? Climate change is at full throttle here and Angela Merkel has been in power for 16 years.

 

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 Sinchi,

The world is changing and it is happening fast.

 

dear future children,

As I write this, our world is slowly giving way to climate change.

 

Dear future generations,

It’s never too late to make a difference. Our actions have very real consequences. We can educate ourselves, learn from our mistakes, and take action. We can hold companies like big oil and big plastic accountable for their negative impacts on the environment. We can educate ourselves and others about what causes climate change and what actions we as individuals can take to lower our carbon footprints.

 

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.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to stop eating beef.

 

Dear Valentina & Luis,

You both know I have made it my mission to get people to understand more about the state of our planet‘s climate and what was at stake.
