Dear daughter,

Right now, things in the world seem a little grim. Things with the climate especially seem hopeless, but I’m writing to you to tell you I want to do better. In the past few years, I’ve learned so much about this Earth – its beauty, its power, and its value. But a lot of my actions, as well a the actions of others, haven’t communicated these truths.

I want you to know that I want to – and will do – better. I want to build a better world so that you can live a life where the Earth is valued, healed, and life-giving. To do that, there’s so much I need to do. But, I’ll do it for you – because you deserve this world.

Dear Evan,

What has most inspired me to act is wanting to be able to look you in the eye and say, “When I became aware of the existential threat of climate change, I did all I could.”  Despite my pessimism, I act in the hope it can make a difference for future generations and all the precious life on our fragile planet.

I’m doing this work because I see it as the best way to save and improve as many lives as possible. I’m doing it so you, 2050 Ryan, can look at yourself in the mirror. And so you can tell your kids and grandkids someday that you did everything you could.


Dear Lucy,

The clock ticks, time passes, and the earth and all of its inhabitants move closer to dangerous boundaries we can dimly discern but cannot see clearly.
