To Future Students,

I can’t even imagine how much the world will change in 13-33 years.  I’m sure looking back it will seem ridiculous that so many people did not believe in climate change, let alone a president. It seems like we were only able to convince people there was a problem when it was already far too late. For that, many generations will have to suffer the consequences.

You may be thinking that your major isn’t related to climate change and you can’t have much of an impact, but that is the exact sort of thinking that got the world into this situation in the first place. Go vote for those who have the best interest of the planet in mind, go work for companies that respect what boundaries the planet has left, and never stop thinking about your opportunities to make a difference. I hope these words are wasted and that everyone has incorporated sustainability and countering global warming into their lives.

I apologize for the world we have to live in and work to better, and I may just be a Computer Science major, but I will vote for those who will actually make the world better, I will put responsibility before money in the companies I work for, and I know that you will join me after some years and help all of us take positive action on climate change.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Me of 2050,

I promise that I will plant more trees in places where there are none.

 

My dearest Paloma Bear,

I want the very best for you and for generations to come. There is only one planet earth. Your mommy and I will make a genuine effort to make an impact to protect it for you.

 

Dear Spike, Loulou and Yoshua,

I’m going to start a campaign to try to convince everybody in the Netherlands to not eat meat one day a week.

 

To my future children,

I am doing everything I can because I want the footprint that I leave behind to be my feet in the sand on a beach and not a carbon one.

 

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 Seamus and Tuva,

So it’s 2050. If the good people are winning the greater struggle, fossil fuels are a shamefully long chapter of the past, and there has been a full scale awakening to the need for only renewable, clean energy.

 

Dear future loved ones,

As I sit here and write to you, I’d like to share with you something more horrifying than a few boos – our current home, Earth.

 

To my future children,

It’s not enough to just recycle. I will sign petitions and call my local representatives. I will also engage in conversations about climate change – even with people with whom I don’t see eye-to-eye.

 

Dear Elliott,

We’re moving into uncertain times, and your dad and I worry. A lot. But you’re keeping us going. You’re pushing us to make better choices and not give up.

 

Salutations to whoever may be reading this,

I promise to do my part. I promise to be the change I want to see in the world, and I hope that you, reader, will do the same.

 

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.

 

Minha pequena Nicole ainda não nos conhecemos, mas já te amo

Deixo para você o meu quintal onde o ar é perfumado pelas flores e árvores, a terra dá frutos e flores além de abrigar muitos bichinhos, a água é utilizada com consciência e o ser humano é respeitado e tratado como alguém que depende da natureza para VIVER.
