To me, 50 years from now,

Right now, you are in your second year of college. The homework is atrocious, although probably nothing like what the years to come will be. With regards to the ever-increasing risk/damage of climate change, you have given yourself comfort by saying “I can’t do anything about it.” In fairness, you are doing what you can: living in an apartment-styled building (it’s really a dorm, but am I wrong?), biking/walking everywhere, shorter showers, etc. Alas, there are still people who don’t believe in climate change. According to Yale, “Americans Who Accept Climate Change Outnumber Those Who Don’t 5 to 1”, but that leaves 1/6 of the American population (54.5 million) who refuse to believe. As odd as that is, they will come to believe, or they will perish as a result of their refusal to believe. The current President (Trump) doesn’t believe in CC, but every one of the (20) democrats who are currently running for the position do, with one formulating a $3 billion spending plan.

So here’s hoping this doesn’t end in a global catastrophe, and I’m well aware that typing this thing isn’t doing anything to help the crisis, nor do I think I’ll actually receive this message 50 years from now, and I’m really only doing this for the extra credit, but it feels nice.

dear earth,

I promise those who walked the Earth before me and those who will walk the Earth after me that I will not stand by and let nature slip through my fingers.

 

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.

 

Filhota,

Espero de verdade saber contribuir para legá-la inteira para você, e que todos saibamos fazer isso em conjunto também.

 

Dear Jack,

Right now you are only a little over 5 weeks old, but you have truly changed my whole world. Your Mom and I always say that we thought we loved before you were born, but now that you have come into the world and we met you, our ability to love just expanded exponentially.

 

I pledge to use less plastic.

 

Jeremy M,

My promise is to work to protest carbon emissions.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Awareness is key. Learning about this issue can seem like a small effort compared to other actions, but it’s the most important.

 

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.

 

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.

 

Dear Future Generations,

I promise to make as many changes to my life as possible to make yours as great as mine.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

It wasn’t about Him, it was about Us. And this isn’t about Me, it’s about You. And it won’t be about You, it will be about Them.

 

Dear Eleanor,
