To my grandchildren,

It is the year 2019 and climate change has become a nationwide issue. Many experts say that if we do not take action now and start changing our habits, I could only imagine what the year 2050 will look like. Many individuals are not aware of the effect greenhouse gases have had on the earth’s atmosphere. With the increase in greenhouse gases and changes in albedo, much ice starts to melt and sea-levels begin to increase. I was exposed to a documentary that stated that in the year 2050 part of Florida was going to be under water, due to sea-levels rising.

By the time you read this letter, I hope that is not to late to make changes that we did not make in the year 2019. Some changes consist of using environmental friendly products or even changing eating habits that has a negative effect our environment. This being said, many people are not aware; however, many foods have a carbon footprint. A carbon footprint tracks the amount of C02 based off of anthropogenic activities and agriculture. For instance, it is a known fact that chicken is a healthier option as opposed to beef; however, chicken also emits less Co2 than beef. So your not only making a healthier decision, but also making a difference in climate change.

I am writing this letter to let you know that I have made changes in order to ensure a safe and healthy world for you. I have made changes in my eating habits and I have preserved energy that will hopefully make a difference and save our planet. I also hope that in the year 2050, large corporations that have a negative impact on our environment have chosen to make eco friendly products. It is crucial that more people become aware of this issue in years to come, otherwise who knows if there will even be a future. What ever choices you make, I hope that make them while thinking of the future your grandchildren will have.

More Messages to the Future

 

To my precious children,

As you’ve grown older, I’ve become increasingly aware that protecting you means more than ensuring your short-term safety. It also means ensuring that you’ll have a safe planet to live on.

 

I pledge to stop using plastic bags.

 

Dear little one,

In the coming months, we plan to complete a full assessment of our environmental impact online. We hope to discover our biggest areas of resource consumption, learn what we can do better, and create an action plan to improve over the next year.

 

To my grandchildren’s children,

I became an activist to be part of a force to save the natural world and go 100% clean energy.

 

To what we’ve overcome.

The first step would be in overcoming ourselves. Because whether we end up fading into obscurity, or thriving in prosperity, we will overcome ourselves.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will encourage composting at work.

 

Dear Nolan, Patrick, Cullen and Gabriel,

This Mother’s Day I am again thinking of my grandsons future and what I am doing to change the world if only by a small fraction.

 

For those who come after us,

This is for the countless children I already see suffering the impact of climate change around the world, and the generations to follow.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

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

 

Dear Tomorrow and Dearest Lex, 

I do believe that the collective power of everyone’s best efforts can curb the worst effects of climate change, and provide you with a more stable and secure future.

 

Dear June and Colin,

I’m sad and angry that collectively more has not been done to this date. And that still with such dire warnings, obvious impacts, those in power are acting far too slowly.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I’m not allowed to talk about climate change around family; as my mom warned me, “climate change is not something that people think about in Mississippi.” But I’m worried for my family’s future.
