To my future self,

If you are reading this, this means that it has been 30 years after the time when I wrote this letter. I hope by the time it reaches 2050, our world and environment has changed completely – in a good way where fresh air and renewable energy sources cover the masses of our world. I will try my best to create a world for my future self where clean air and renewable energy will be a resource for our electricity. Not just for myself, but also for all those out there who believe in the destruction of global warming and climate change. I will pursue my effort to reduce as much natural gas and electricity used during my time and try my best to maintain a better world for you. I will continue to advocate with the politicians and scientists who believe that global warming is real and will be an imminent danger to us in the near future. Hopefully, politicians will swap their views on global warming and climate change onto of a more radical approach so that we can resolve the problem of global warming and climate change effectively. If the world still has not changed from the time I wrote this letter, then I hope for the change as soon as possible. The Earth may not hold on for too long and we need to act upon this matter of urgency.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Evan,

What has most inspired me to act is wanting to be able to look you in the eye and say, “When I became aware of the existential threat of climate change, I did all I could.”  Despite my pessimism, I act in the hope it can make a difference for future generations and all the precious life on our fragile planet.

 

Dear future family and friends,

This is our house.

 

To My Future Children,

Most importantly, I hope you live in a world where science is taken seriously and fact is clearly distinguished from fiction.

 

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 Eleanor,

You are so small. So innocent. So beautiful. For you and for everyone else, I will try harder.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to stop using a plastic straw.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will encourage everyone to get OUT of their cars and onto public transit.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I am so sorry we didn’t realize this predicament sooner.

 

Dear Corey,

I promise to do all within my power to create a world that’s safe for you and your generation.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I’ll buy only food that I plan to eat before it spoils.

 

To my fellow adventurers,

Don’t stop looking for adventures.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will eat vegan, organic, locally grown, and seasonal.
