To the future,

It is currently April 2018. When I think of the future of our planet, I like to be hopeful. I am hoping the generations ahead do not have to suffer from the consequences of past generations. This is a difficult concept to grasp because we can already see great damage that has been done to our planet. It’s no secret that people tend to take advantage of the planet we live in because it won’t matter to them what happens in the future.

Today, we currently have President Donald Trump in office who does not believe in climate change. A person like him has a lot of power in influencing people. This is why I believe educating the youth is so important. Education is one of the most valuable resources that we can give to the next generation. Educating them on how to treat our planet and what they can do to help will make a change on how the future will turn out.

I hope in the future we are able to take advantage of the resources that we have. Right now in 2018, we have incredible amounts of technology and it will only become more advanced in the future. By then I am hoping we have found ways to help preserve our environment and animals and keep its people healthy.

I wish a safe and clean planet for your future. I hope you are able to do things that we are able to do today. I hope there are still animals that are around today. And lastly, I hope we are able to keep sustainability not only in the environment, but also economically and socially.

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.

 

Queridos nietas/nietos,

Creo que debo hacer más. Por ello, he decidido escribir esta breve carta para empezar un proceso en el que vaya escribiendo más cartas, conforme vaya teniendo más claridad de mis posibles contribuciones.

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

 

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?

To my dearest Gabriel,

What gives me hope is what is yet to come, what you will experience in your lifetime.

 

Dear Evan,

What has most inspired me to act is wanting to be able to look you in the eye and say, “When I became aware of the existential threat of climate change, I did all I could.”  Despite my pessimism, I act in the hope it can make a difference for future generations and all the precious life on our fragile planet.

 

Dear Logan,

I am working every second of my life, with every ounce of my being, to ensure that I am leaving you and your brother a planet that is safe and secure.
