In 2050, I will still be fighting against climate change. I feel that it’s not only my duty, but rather my destiny.

To you, my dear!

You want to know how I became an environmentalist? Well I’m still not, but I hope that one day when I finish my degree in Geosciences, I will have the great honor to be called one.

I forever dedicate my green-awareness to the great Clair Patterson.What he did for the humanity was simply heroic. That is how I decided to study geosciences, dreaming that one day I could find a way to make Earth a better place for you to live in. I hope that now that you are reading my letter, all my dreams have become reality. I don’t want to think about it in any other way.

Now, my dear, I’m just going to give one last piece of advice: Dream big. I’m at the crossroad in my life now that I’m writing this letter. I don’t know where the path I’ve chosen will lead me, but one thing is for sure: In 2050, I will still be fighting against climate change. I feel that it’s not only my duty, but rather my destiny.

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

 

Dear Rowan and Anaka,

If we could talk, I would not be able to bear your gaze as you ask: How could you, the people in a position to change the course of climate change, fail to act?

 

Dear Tomorrow,

No plastic straws, no water bottles, shop local, no meat.

dear future people (:

I am writing this message to you guys. When I look outside my window today, I see a beautiful world that others and myself call “home sweet home.” The trees glimmering in warm sunlight, the air stirring a cool breeze, and the water flowing down rivers are parts of our home Mother Earth.

 

Para minha querida filha, Vitória,

Consegue compreender que estamos aqui de passagem e que temos por obrigação apenas tomar emprestado, evitado excessos e principalmente agradecer.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will convince my family to switch their gas appliances to electric.

 

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.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The only way to survive it, even if you don’t feel like you’re winning, is to keep your hands on the rope.

 

Dear Gabriel,

One day ten or twenty years from now, when you look back from the future, you will be able to clearly see the entire path.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will aim to lower my carbon footprint!
