To my lovely children,

It is the year 2017 and we have been experiencing some major environmental changes that are of great concern. These changes have caused the destruction of natural habitats and many animal species are in danger. Some countries have also suffered from natural disasters, leaving many people helpless and homeless. To this day, many people are still in denial when it comes to accepting the fact that global warming is happening and climate change will continue to occur unless we unite and do something about it. I am doing as much as I can for you guys to grow up in a green world full of fresh air in which you guys can continue to enjoy this beautiful planet. I hope that when you children are older, you will continue to promote awareness and do your part to save the earth.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Future Explorers,

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

 

Dear Grandchildren — August and any others who were born after him

I joined millions of other people who wrote letters and made calls urging our leaders to do more to care for the planet.

 

To my beloved granddaughters, Margaret and Caroline,

Growing up in Germany, I often wondered what my parents had done to oppose the Nazi regime in the 1930’s that led to WWII.  I was so disappointed when I found out how passive they had been. For me, this was formative.

 

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.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I promise to reduce my waste production

 

Dear Future Me: Only open after March 4th, 2050

I don’t regret my past ventures, nor do I believe I will regret my future ventures, but I’ve learned that I’ve needed to manifest these experiences into actions of sustainable development and conservation and protection of our environment.

 

Dear Future Self,

More than getting through a global pandemic that has already taken hundreds of thousands of lives around the world, our true feat is even larger: to secure our long-term health and the health of the ecosystems upon which we depend for life. To do that, we have to cut our emissions in half in the next ten years, and continue to reduce it beyond that. And to succeed in that, we need to fundamentally shift the way we do EVERYTHING.

 

Dear Future Generations,

I am sorry that you won’t be able to see some other animals such as polar bears, dolphins and whales.

 

Dear Lillyana,

I will continue to work to make the Earth a cleaner and safer place for you to grow and explore.

 

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.

 

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.

 

I will recycle stuff I found.
