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.

More Messages to the Future

 

Oh My Lovely Faizan,

I love you my son. You are waking up now. Hopefully tomorrow, more of us will, too.

 

Dear James,

More importantly, what are we doing to better our planet and everyone who lives in it?

 

Dear Future Afnan,

You should make a time machine and come back to past and solve all the problems.

 

Dear future generations,

It’s never too late to make a difference. Our actions have very real consequences. We can educate ourselves, learn from our mistakes, and take action. We can hold companies like big oil and big plastic accountable for their negative impacts on the environment. We can educate ourselves and others about what causes climate change and what actions we as individuals can take to lower our carbon footprints.

 

Dear Nieces and Nephews,

I tried.

 

Dear X—, Dear A—,

As with our struggles to eliminate police brutality, as with hate crimes, so it is with climate change – there are actually a lot of people out there who care.

 

Dear Maret,

Right now I want to be hopeful. Right now I want to think that we took action to ensure this beautiful future for you.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I haven’t met you yet, but I already know you deserve a better tomorrow.

 

Minha pequena Nicole ainda não nos conhecemos, mas já te amo

Deixo para você o meu quintal onde o ar é perfumado pelas flores e árvores, a terra dá frutos e flores além de abrigar muitos bichinhos, a água é utilizada com consciência e o ser humano é respeitado e tratado como alguém que depende da natureza para VIVER.

 

Dear Future Me,

I promise that I will change my behavior to benefit our trees.

 

Dear Kai and Leah,

I want you to feel awestruck like I do. It is important to feel small sometimes, to feel the weight of reality, to recognize the scale of a challenge, to see where you fit and what you are up against. This is the case with climate change.

 

To you, my dear!

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