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 Sander,

I pray that you are having a happy life and that you have contributed each year of your life into helping to make our planet healthy, cleaner, thriving and greener- a better place for all people and animals to live.

 

To the generation after mine,

But when you encounter that resistance–and you will, regularly–know that you must respond just how we have had to these past 50 years. With love, and sternness, and most of all, courage. Because that is what the resistance fears the most. We who came before you promise that we will do the same while we wait for you. Know that you will never be alone.

 

Dear James,

More importantly, what are we doing to better our planet and everyone who lives in it?

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to stop eating beef.

 

Filhota,

Espero de verdade saber contribuir para legá-la inteira para você, e que todos saibamos fazer isso em conjunto também.

 

Para minha querida filha, Vitória,

Consegue compreender que estamos aqui de passagem e que temos por obrigação apenas tomar emprestado, evitado excessos e principalmente agradecer.

 

Dear Alyssa,

I pray that more and more fathers will realize that to love their children well, they have to love and respect the ecological systems around them too.

To My Future Child(ren),

The fact that you are reading this means that you would know the answer to a question that has kept me up at night more often than I would like to admit: Did I make you proud?

 

Queridos filhos Heloísa e Henzo,

Tenho muito orgulho da minha função (agente de fiscalização ambiental do Acre) pois é através dela que posso dar um pouco do meu suor, para que no futuro ambos possam ter um lugar melhor para viver.

 

Queridos amigos sobrevivientes.

Quiero pensar que ustedes serán la diferencia, que tomaran más actos sobre el asunto y no dejaran que nada los detenga.

 

Pour ma famille,

Il faut trouver le 7ème sens et se battre pour des causes justes, comme l´amour et la liberté.
