Dear Edoardo,

We have not inherited this Earth from our parents, we borrowed it from our children.
For this reason we have to save it!

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to become more educated on the global issues that face populations I can’t see

 

To My Grandchildren,

It’s my hope that the following will be helpful as you navigate your futures.  These are the confessions of a climate activist:

 

Dear Eleanor,

You are so small. So innocent. So beautiful. For you and for everyone else, I will try harder.

 

To anyone who has heard my music,

I promise to care about the planet.

 

Dear Thomas,

When you look at me with those big beautiful eyes and that innocent smile, you make me want to fight harder. And I do.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate promise is to reduce electricity at home. I will turn off the TV and lights when I’m not in the room.

 

Dear future self,

I am writing this to keep myself accountable and push myself towards taking action towards a sustainable future. I hope children of the future can still appreciate the wonders that nature and all its beings have to offer, appreciate the beauty in the world around us.

 

My darling Cassidy,

I know I need to write this to you, and I don’t want to because it makes me so sad. I have been desperately avoiding my feelings about climate change, for many years, but especially and with greater intensity every year since you were born.

 

Dear Future Self,

I hope you got your dream job of using your business degree to reduce co2 emissions and promote sustainable energy.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to sign up for 100% renewable energy.

 

Dear sons,

I’ve been so busy since 2012 working towards getting a price on carbon.

 

Dear Nephew,

I believe i have truly played my part in raising awareness and practical solutions to climate change.
