I promise to disrupt and to use my community to create change.
More Messages to the Future
Please know that I have tried very hard to be one of those people, to even make the smallest of changes in order to improve the world for you and your future.
A love letter to my son
I hope this year is a real turning point and by the time you’re a teenager, your life is powered almost entirely by clean energy like solar and wind.
Dear Children and Grandchildren,
I see a world full of hope fueled by the desire for change.
I promise to only use metal straws and reusable cups.
To my Beloved Future Children,
Be fearless – do not be afraid to talk to each other and do not be afraid to fail.
Pick up your trash wherever you go!
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.
To my grandchildren,
Ahora vivo en la ciudad de México y cuando debe de llover no llueve… cuando hace calor de verdad hace calor.
To my daughter and son,
Surrounded by scientists who shared my fears and visions, I often had a hard time to accept that outside our small community climate change received marginal attention.
Dear Annalyse and Greyson,
See people can say they care about climate change, but caring is not action.
I promise I will use less fossil fuels.
Be the person who shows up. Be the person who continues to advocate for change because change is possible – it is possible in the most partisan of politics.
