I hope that you all can enjoy the Smokey Mountains in your lifetime too and that they look how they did back in 2017 when I saw them.

To the future generations,

Around the United States, there are many amazing creations of nature. The Great Smokey Mountain National Park is the most beautiful that I have seen so far. Getting to hike up mountains and to spend a week immersed with nature was a great experience. Everyone should be able to partake in this experience. This park—as with all of them—should be protected at all costs. It is important to have these green spaces incorporated into our lives.

Unfortunately, climate change can change all of this. As the temperature rises and the current climate changes, nature will be compromised. The current ecosystems that are existing, will not be able to survive through higher temperatures or different levels of precipitation. As the natural plant life dies off, the problems will only get worse and the temperatures will continue to rise even further. If it gets much worse, temperatures will not be able to support human life as well. You all are at risk. There needs to be change for the better.

I hope that by now, there are people that possess genuine care for the environment get put into power. As voters, we need to make sure that whoever is being elected has concern for how human-caused climate change is making an impact on the beautiful landscapes of the country. The relationship that humans have with nature should be harmonious. My hope for the future is that all of the future generations are continuing to work towards restoring this relationship.

My promise is to do what I can to raise awareness of the long-term effects of climate change. I want to set up this expectation to spread information for your generation and the ones that follow. Climate change is serious and there needs to be change as soon as possible.

I hope that you all can enjoy the Smokey Mountains in your lifetime too and that they look how they did back in 2017 when I saw them.

Hi buddy,

I can now see that the solutions are there, that a transition of the magnitude that is needed, is possible.

 

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?

 

Rachel and Noelle,

I hope in a small way this helps your world.

 

Dear future me,

If we don’t stop cutting down trees for agriculture and to build houses then the future generations will not think about trees when they hear the word Earth.

 

Dear Lucy,

The clock ticks, time passes, and the earth and all of its inhabitants move closer to dangerous boundaries we can dimly discern but cannot see clearly.

You should’ve reduced your carbon footprint, should be using some source of renewable energy and be a vegetarian by now.

 

Dear Son,

I hope with effective action to combat this climate change will we have a better world in the future.

 

Dear Kai and Leah,

I want you to feel awestruck like I do. It is important to feel small sometimes, to feel the weight of reality, to recognize the scale of a challenge, to see where you fit and what you are up against. This is the case with climate change.

 

Dear Sinchi,

The world is changing and it is happening fast.

 

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.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will take short showers, eat less meat, and buy local more often.

 

Future Message to Earth,

Hope there will be no more droughts,
And no more pollution with which we fought,
Regarding every human should be taught,
Ensuring that we uniformly follow these thoughts.
