Dear 2030Matt,

You have kids. And they will (probably!?) have kids. And the earth is not healthy and is getting worse.

It’s easy to “just live” and do what we’ve been doing too much of for too long: driving / eating meat / using fossil fuels to heat our homes / traveling for vacations. You personally, and your family, have made strides (not perfect!) but the issue is that we don’t have consistent government leadership and policy on this.

So this most important thing you can do over the next 10 years is to get the right people elected to drive real, sustaining, meaningful change.

And spend plenty of time outdoors with your kids.

I can only say that I devoted myself to doing as much as I could to make it better, to provide for a just transition, and to fight those forces that continued to exploit the Eaarth with extractive methods, methods that always also included oppressing some people–because those doing the oppression believed that they were better and deserved more.
