To my future self,

I hope by the time of 2050, the world isn’t in chaos. Currently, in the year 2020, we are already seeing the effects of climate change. We’re watching the world we know disappear. Our continental ice is melting and we’re just watching it disappear. Hurricanes are destroying people’s homes and no one seems to care. People are dying, and no one will change their ways because it’s inconvenient.

Remember, sacrifices are necessary to help future generations to survive. When I think of the year 2050, I can only assume the worst. In my mind, I can imagine the increase in wildfires, carbon emissions, rising oceans, etc. With the way things are currently going, I can see change being done but not soon enough to save ice and snow from disappearing in the Arctic. However, I hope that when it’s 2050 we have learned to sacrifice our comfort to help to save the environment. I really hope that when it’s 2050 that we still have some ice left on Earth. Even if the possibility is slim, there’s still a chance for change. There’s a chance that the United States could have changed its ways and lowered their emissions. I want to believe that our peak in carbon emissions is coming soon. If it doesn’t, then I can only assume the worst.

Currently, the United States doesn’t seem to care about lowering carbon emissions. We are the worst globally when it comes to carbon emissions. This is the price we’re paying for living a comfortable life. We need advocates for change. I want and hope that more people like Greta and AOC will come and advocate to stop climate change. I hope that from 2020 to 2050, you are also an advocate to stop climate change. I hope when you read this that you still remember to continue empathizing with others who are in need of help. Don’t turn your back on those who are uprooted from their lands. Be a kind soul, and help them. Even if something doesn’t affect you, that doesn’t mean it doesn’t matter. Be the change and help others.

Dear Tomorrow

I promise to reduce my waste production

 

Dear Potential Future Kiddo,

To think that my choices of sustainable commuting, eating a plant based diet, and working on our City’s zero waste program likely pale in comparison to the impact of not having a baby is nothing short of devastating.  Does it make me a bad environmentalist to honor my maternal instincts?

 

Minhas lindas,

As causas das mudanças no clima são tão profundas e envolvem tanta gente e tantos lugares.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Less meat, more on my feet!

 

Dear Maret,

Right now I want to be hopeful. Right now I want to think that we took action to ensure this beautiful future for you.

 

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.

 

To future Geof,

Cool, now that your jetpack is put away in your garage where you keep your flying car; how did the aliens save us from our own destruction? Did they have this hyper advance vacuum that just sucks all the greenhouse gases out of our atmosphere?

 

Dear Rosie,

But when you are reading this years from now, by the light of a solar powered lamp, know that your dad, mom and millions of others who burned brightly with love for our kids did what we could, when we knew the stakes.

 

To my fellow adventurers,

Don’t stop looking for adventures.

 

My future husband,

I want us to read this in future time and remember all the senses and views we witnessed.

 

Dear Future Explorers,

I am often faced with the question: why do I care so much about this pale blue dot that we inhabit?

 

To My Future Children,

I hope by 2050, our society has taken initiative to be producing energy solely through renewable sources.
