To the future generation,

Hello to whoever reads this letter in the future. Today is a beautiful sunny day without a single cloud in sight. The sun is warm with a slight breeze tingling down my face as I walk on the sidewalks. Over the next ten, twenty or even thirty years, these clear, sunny skies may not even exist. At the current rate of pollution and climate change that we are currently experiencing, cities may begin to fill up with smog and pollution. I fear the day that we may not ever see a sunny day in the future.

The natural environments of many places all around the world are changing more rapidly than we have ever expected. Glaciers are melting, sea levels are rising, and it is only getting worse. Cities by the shore could potentially be new cities of Atlantis. Hopefully, by the time this is read, we would have already fixed our sea level problem, but as of this moment, the future seems bleak. I would hate to have to see cities such as Miami, or even San Francisco underwater.

Many people still don’t believe in climate change and its effects on the environment, but when everyone suddenly does begin to believe, I fear that it may be too late. We can still mitigate the amount of damage we have done and many people are actively doing so each and every single day. People have begun to recycle more and using more energy efficient methods of life. I truly hope that by the time someone reads this, we would have fully converted to sustainable methods of living. Whether it is through wind, hydro, solar, or even some un-invented source of power, it doesn’t matter. As long as we all begin to mitigate our energy consumption and conserve more, these beautiful, clear and sunny skies should still shine as brightly as today. I like to remain optimistic about the future and with everyone’s help, we can all make the future a better place for future generations to come.

More Messages to the Future

 

My darling Cassidy,

I know I need to write this to you, and I don’t want to because it makes me so sad. I have been desperately avoiding my feelings about climate change, for many years, but especially and with greater intensity every year since you were born.

 

Dear My Future Child,

I want to sculpt a world for you where you can play outside without gas masks, an ocean to swim in without toxins, and a thick lively forest for you to wander.

 

To my brother’s children,

We wondered about how we might be able to eliminate plastics from our day to day routines, and recycled literally everything. We were amazing, you should have seen us. Now and again though, we wondered if these were the right questions.

 

Hallo Clara,

Was wohl der Klimawandel im Jahr 2050 macht? und wer gerade in der Politik ist? Bei uns macht der Klimawandel gerade Vollgas und an der Macht ist Angela Merkel, seit 16 Jahren
What will climate change do in 2050? and who is in politics right now? Climate change is at full throttle here and Angela Merkel has been in power for 16 years.

 

Dear Tomorrow

Stay Cool and Save the Whales

 

Dear Tomorrow

I promise to encourage myself and others to recycle more.

 

Dear Nieces, Nephews, & Future Children…

If there is any advice I could give you, it is to believe that although you are one single person in this world, you still have the ability to make a difference in this world.

 

Dear future Michelle,

As consumers, it is our duty to protest and force companies to be greener and avoid environmental damage, whether they are from the food industry or from any other production industry. It’s about time we start thinking greener.

 

Annalu minha filha amada,

Espero de coração que, no futuro, você possa olhar para trás e se orgulhar muito dos pais que teve.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to never use a plastic straw.

 

To my grandchildren’s children,

I became an activist to be part of a force to save the natural world and go 100% clean energy.

 

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.
