Dear Aurora,

I have devoted my life to trying to alter the course of our civilization because I want not only you to have the chance for a long and full and good life but because I want this glorious world we are all a part of to live. There are so many moments when it feels like we’re just not going to change in time, but the terrible danger we face drives me onward. I cannot let myself become despondent, immobilized by despair. I rest my faith in the knowledge that, though it is most definitely too late to make things “all right,” it is not too late to make things better than they otherwise will be – and maybe, just maybe, a whole lot better. I hope I live to celebrate that Great Turning with you when you see this.

Love,

Uncle John

To my dear children in the year 2050,

I don’t wish to go backwards, but I do wish we would slow down and design our brave new world with more care.

 

To my Grandchildren,

May you thrive, enjoy and, when ready, take on the mantle we entrust to you to carry forward for your grandchildren and all the world’s children.

 

My Dear Paloma,

I’m going to commit to raising you with your eyes open. Being aware as much as we can, how to better our environment together.

I want you to see those corn fields in the north, the beautiful beaches down in Florida, and the stars in the woods at night.

Dear little one,

In the coming months, we plan to complete a full assessment of our environmental impact online. We hope to discover our biggest areas of resource consumption, learn what we can do better, and create an action plan to improve over the next year.

 

To future Geof,

Cool, now that your jetpack is put away in your garage where you keep your flying car; how did the aliens save us from our own destruction? Did they have this hyper advance vacuum that just sucks all the greenhouse gases out of our atmosphere?
