Dear Charlie, George, and Ryan,

We tried. I have attempted to dedicate my life to turn climate change around, or at least slow it down. I am heartbroken every day thinking of what the future of our beautiful, living, growing planet looks like now. Despite the best efforts of many, the planet will never be the same, regardless of what it looks like now. All I can hope is that this year, 2017, year of Trump and threats of nuclear war, will be a turning point for the human species. Maybe after hitting rock bottom we can have a quick turn around and come together for the Earth. I will never lose hope, I will never back down, and I will continue to work very hard to do whatever I can for our home. Scientists are mighty.

Yours sincerely,

Fiona

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Daughter,

Even when contemplating huge global-historical issues — especially then — it’s important to stay grounded in the present time and place, the specific here and now, and the minute affairs of everyday interpersonal relations.

 

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 Tomorrow,

My climate promise is to use a refillable bottle, bring my own resusable spoon/form wherever I go, use clean personal care products (without chemicals).

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate action is to educate youth to create solutions for energy efficiency and conservation opportunities.

 

To My Dear Grandchildren,

Be assured that in the upcoming election, I will cast my vote for your future – for elected officials that recognize climate risks and are willing to promote and vote for legislation that will stop environmental damage and begin to heal our planet.

 

Dear Nephew,

I am going to start doing better to have a healthier planet for you to live on.

 

To the Future Generations,

I look at my baby niece today. The newest member of our family, just 3 days old. What will be left for her and her grandchildren?

 

Dear Rowan and Anaka,

If we could talk, I would not be able to bear your gaze as you ask: How could you, the people in a position to change the course of climate change, fail to act?

 

Dear Future Cassie,

I promise to be successful and help save the environment.

 

Dear old dude Mårten,

I know that the 2019 version of me (today that is) wished and hoped for that I did all within my power to turn the world around without loosing sight on the beauty of being alive.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The road I learned to ride my bike on, the field where I kicked my first soccer ball, and the park I ate my first ice cream cone at, could all be gone.

 

To my Children,

As you look through your window, I hope you will see a bright future. I hope you dream big, and that you have the courage, drive, and fortitude to do everything you can to achieve those dreams.
