To whom it may concern,

We are currently in 2018 and the world is growing rapidly. From our population to the technology, we are evolving fast and are not aware of the consequences of our actions yet. We are being warned and estimated that our carbon footprint is too high and that our greenhouse gas emissions are getting out of hand. There are minimal laws in effect about pollution and generally minimal awareness about how toxic we are creating our environment. I hope that we gradually increase our overall contributions to earth with minimal consequences. New technology thanks to Elon Musk will help us preserve our wildlife and environments around the world. By 2050, I hope we stop using fossil fuels and in the coming years we will work hard to be more green friendly and environmentally cautious. Lastly, I hope we can create technology to undo or slow down the process of global warming in ways that we have yet to discover because our technology is limited compared to the advanced future.

More Messages to the Future

 

I want to tell you a story. Yes, another one.

Mankind has always been able to deal with the greatest challenges it’s faced and this will not be the exception. My message to you is: find that passion and give it your all. ‘Till your legs give out.

 

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 Potential Future Kiddo,

To think that my choices of sustainable commuting, eating a plant based diet, and working on our City’s zero waste program likely pale in comparison to the impact of not having a baby is nothing short of devastating.  Does it make me a bad environmentalist to honor my maternal instincts?

 

Dear Nephew,

I am going to start doing better to have a healthier planet for you to live on.

 

Dear Kids,

I know it’s long past time to wake up. You deserve a future in which drought, famine, and war are not all your children ever know; the choices my generation makes now will determine your future.

 

I promise to plant more flowers.

 

Dear Soren,

In this world that is changing before our eyes, I believe that is our task: standing unflinchingly on the side of love, connecting with others, and forging ahead together.

 

For those who come after us,

This is for the countless children I already see suffering the impact of climate change around the world, and the generations to follow.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate promise: community awareness of the climate crisis.

 

Chers Enfants,

Chers Enfants,

 

Dear future love,

A culture of consumption is the reason that my world faces such an ecological crisis, it is both necessary and proper to address the fundamental mindsets that have created such a destructive culture.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to sign up for 100% renewable energy.
