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

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will use less fossil fuels.

 

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?

 

Queridas crianças do mundo inteiro,

Pedimos que vocês procurem fazer como nós e continuem essa luta de colaborar com nosso planeta: evitando o consumo exagerado, usando a tecnologia para o bem, plantando árvores, economizando água e poluindo menos.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to pick up trash at every beach I visit, use metal straws, take quick showers.

 

Filha,

Saiba que enquanto eu tiver vida, minha voz não calará para alertar o mal que estamos fazendo agora para as nossas gerações futuras…

 

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 fellow human,

May my tomorrow include more attention to these details so that you know that I do care.

 

Dear Future Ryan,

I promise to be a knight in the campaign of truth seeking.

 

Dear fantastic,

We as the human race are smarter than this struggle at hand and need to rise above large corporate interests and confusion on this topic.

 

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 Future Me,

I promise that I will change my behavior to benefit our trees.

 

Dear Samuel, Willa, and Ben,

To the core of my being, and only through the power of community, I will honor the voices of the youth who are pleading, “Don’t burn my future.” Samuel, Willa, and Ben, your little voices I know, will join that chorus soon enough.
