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.

To my beloved granddaughters, Margaret and Caroline,

Growing up in Germany, I often wondered what my parents had done to oppose the Nazi regime in the 1930’s that led to WWII.  I was so disappointed when I found out how passive they had been. For me, this was formative.
