Dear Children,

I’m sorry for the damage that the generations that have came before you have done to the world you live in. The world you have inherited is tainted due to the unsustainable practices of those who have come before you. Countless generations before yours, have punted the issues of climate change and now your generation must reap the consequences of this inaction.

I’m sorry that I have been a part of this inaction. For every plastic bottle I haven’t recycled, for every fossil fuel I have burned, for every drop of water I have wasted; I’m sorry. I promise that I will work to be more sustainable so that your generation doesn’t have to pick up my slack.

I’m optimistic that there are others out there that, like me, have a desire to be more sustainable. Increasingly, I see more people buying into the sustainability movement. More people are understanding that climate change is real and has horrible consequences. I hope that my generation will start a change, but it will not be enough.

Your generation will have to be heroes for our climate. What my generation starts, yours must finish. Your generation must be innovators of sustainable development, economics, fuel, agriculture, and every day decisions. While I wish my generation could solve the issues before they become yours, I am confident that you will lead the way. I am confident that your generation will be known as the one that defeated climate change.

So, I thank you. I thank you for not punting the issue of climate change to the next generation. I thank you for every sustainable decision you make. I thank you for being better than the generations that have come before you. Finally, I thank you for being the generation that will bring an end to the destruction of our world.

Dear Nieces, Nephews, & Future Children…

Dear future family and friends,

Dear Seamus and Tuva,

So it’s 2050. If the good people are winning the greater struggle, fossil fuels are a shamefully long chapter of the past, and there has been a full scale awakening to the need for only renewable, clean energy.

 

To my Maria and her children,

I have to tell you something: it is so hard to keep our life “green” for now, but we still keep trying.

 

Olá Pessoal,

Com essas ideias simples e força de vontade, podemos tornar um mundo, um lugar melhor para se viver, com menos mortes, menos lixo, transforma-lo em um mundo diferente.

 

Dear Beloved Children,

As time progresses, there is hope that value will be placed on all living organisms, including humans, plants, and animals. Life will move at a slower pace, and being on your own time and moving at your individual pace will be the typical way of life. I consider this way of life good living, and I hope that future generations will live on this earth as it was once intended to live in peace and harmony.

 

Dear Alba:

There is still a lot of beauty and I will do what I can to keep it from slipping away.

 

To my great-great grandchildren,

I don’t know your name

in a world far different
from the one you must know.

 

To my unborn children, hey it’s mummy Cris here!

I am witnessing climate change in a way that I do not like, and I do not know how can I stop it.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I’ll buy only food that I plan to eat before it spoils.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to pick up trash at every beach I visit, use metal straws, take quick showers.

 

Dear my future family,

I will promise to help climate change as much as I can.
