To whomever,

Honestly speaking, I did not see climate change to be big issue until 4 years ago. I remember when I used to be kid, my parents took me up to the Sierra Nevada to go look at the snow. It was a magically experience. It was something that I always seen in movies and photos but never actually got to see for myself. When my parents told me that we were going to go to Reno for vacation. I was ecstatic. When I returned in 2015, I noticed that there wasn’t as much snow as before. I was thinking about it and I was thinking about the future. What would happen in the next several years? Would there be a future where my future kids will not be able to experience what I did when I was younger?

Climate change doesn’t seem to affect society right now. I always heard people say that you should live in the “now” rather than the “future”. This is true in many ways. However I do not think it apply to climate change where it is not reversible. We can apologize for our mistakes and try to fix it, but with climate change we can’t do much once it already started.

The idea of that happening seems to be a reality. Changing the course of climate change is a difficult matter on its own, however I believe that if more people become aware of the impact of climate change. Then I am hopeful that there will be a change in the turn. What I experienced in my childhood, I want to pass it down to my children. I want them to experience the joy and wonder that I felt.

Dear Future Generations,

Dear Future Generations,

 

Hola hijo/a o quizá nieto/a,

Realmente estoy asustado, porque en mi Pueblo, en mi maldito pueblo existe un paraje de páramo extenso, que era diverso, pero ahora las lagunas que existen hay se están quedando sin agua.

 

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.

 

To My Future Children,

Most importantly, I hope you live in a world where science is taken seriously and fact is clearly distinguished from fiction.

 

Dear Me of 2050,

I promise that I will plant more trees in places where there are none.

 

Dear Cherie,

I promise to plant 5 trees every year just to make sure I don’t leave a carbon footprint.

 

Paz e bem

Vivamos a vida com intensidade, Não nos importando a localidade.

 

My dear granddaughter Christy,

My own curiosity and knowing what a caring, aware young woman you are help me override despair.

 

My Dear Paloma,

I’m going to commit to raising you with your eyes open. Being aware as much as we can, how to better our environment together.

 

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.

 

dear future people (:

I hope that people are still enjoying the wonders that nature has to offer.

 

Dear Seamus and Tuva,

So it’s 2050. If the good people are winning the greater struggle, fossil fuels are a shamefully long chapter of the past, and there has been a full scale awakening to the need for only renewable, clean energy.
