To my future children,

Dear child,

I hope nothing but the best for in all of your future endeavors. I would like the to take the time to apologize to you for how bad our climate has become. The issue was just beginning when I was young and unfortunately my generation didn’t do enough to change the what everyone predicted, a much warmer earth. In my defense, I did everything in my power to try to prevent this warmer earth; I used LED lightbulbs, reduced my electricity usage, and recycled as much as possible. Among other things, our earth has become very warm and I am sorry you have to deal with these conditions we now live in. As your father, I promise to continue to reduce my carbon footprint as long as I’m around, so your children can have a more enjoyable earth to inhabit. Please take care of yourself, and be conscious of your daily carbon footprint. There is much information of the internet to help you out with this.

with love,

your father

More Messages to the Future

 

To my future Niece,

While I will work my hardest to create any positive change I can, you must continue this quest. You cannot give up hope, and you must always remember that the beauty on this Earth is worth saving.

 

To the wonder,

Dear tomorrow, thank you for letting me ride the wave of wonder that reaches toward you for all generations of all species to come.

 

Dear Elliot and Alana,

But being truthful, I know we are not yet on the path that will lead to the change that is needed; but it is visible.

 

Dear Annie and Eric,

I hope that this life of good things is not just yours to enjoy, but that you also have decided to fight for others to have this life, too.

 

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.

 

Oi Luc,

Estou esperando ansiosa sua chegada pra que a gente possa fazer muitas coisas boas juntos, uma delas, é cuidar bem do nosso planeta.

 

Dear Future Generations,

I am sorry that you won’t be able to see some other animals such as polar bears, dolphins and whales.

 

Dear Students,

I imagine at this point we have dropped our addiction to coal, gas, and oil and that our environment has made a turn for the better with the solar, wind, and other unimagined (at this point) alternative energy choices are in place.

 

Dear Jamie and Jason,

My inspiration was the two of you. It started with thinking about the world you were inheriting and what your future was going to be like. But then you taught me how important it is to listen to you – to listen to young people.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to ride a bike and take a smart train.

 

To older Rochelle,

You should’ve reduced your carbon footprint, should be using some source of renewable energy and be a vegetarian by now.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will encourage composting at work.
