To the Denizens of the Future,

I’m half-surprised, really, that a digital time capsule like this even made it to you. So many things could have gone wrong. The world’s ecosystems could have collapsed. Someone could have started nuclear armageddon. Maybe nobody uses emails in the future. Regardless, it made it, and someone may or may not be reading. To the reader,

This is your freshmen-year-college self. Society as a whole is beginning to realize that climate change is a serious threat, despite all of Donald Trump’s reassuring us that it is not. The 2020 election is fast approaching, and I’m eager to see if the Commander in Queef will be re-elected. The fate of the world climate may depend on it.

I’m a pessimist, so I’m inclined to believe that this message won’t reach you, and that if it does, our climate will be destroyed. But on the off chance that everything is nice and happy in the future?

Nice. Cheers!

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 future loved ones,

As I sit here and write to you, I’d like to share with you something more horrifying than a few boos – our current home, Earth.

 

My dearest children Ameilia and Alivia, 

I want you to hear the whispers of the seasons changing. The rustling of leaves as they gracefully cascade down from their limbs in the fall, birds singing in spring, and frogs that serenade the summer night.

I promise to ditch all the natural gas and go all electric with my home!

Dear Maya,

Maya, my love, I promise to be courageous. I promise that when I face a decision, I will think of how it will impact you and your future. I promise that I’ll also step outside my individual decisions and add my weight to the forces that shift culture and systems.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I haven’t met you yet, but I already know you deserve a better tomorrow.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Awareness is key. Learning about this issue can seem like a small effort compared to other actions, but it’s the most important.

 

To my Kids,

I wish you all the best and always make sure that you can be proud of yourself and don’t need status-symbols for feeling nice.
