Dear Eleanor,

This is the second message that Trisha Shrum has written to her daughter.

We started composting again to send that carbon back to the vegetable garden instead of sending it to the landfill where it turns into methane, a powerful greenhouse gas. You love to come with me to the community growing center to drop off the compost and play in the grass and dirt under the shade of trees. Giving myself a reason to go to this little oasis in our neighborhood a few times a week has been a lovely thing for my nature-hungry soul.

All my love,
Trisha

More Messages to the Future

 

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 Annalyse and Greyson,

See people can say they care about climate change, but caring is not action.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I hope that environmental issues are a thing of the past.

 

Dear Future Explorers,

I am often faced with the question: why do I care so much about this pale blue dot that we inhabit?

 

Dear Future

My hope is for all who live in your time to still know the joy of swimming in the ocean, walking through the woods, and hiking in the mountains.

 

Dear Luna,

I will never give up on you, on humanity, on the future.

 

Caro me stesso,

Non so dove e con chi sarò nel 2050, spero che sia un anno migliore di quello appena passato .

 

A love letter to my son

I hope this year is a real turning point and by the time you’re a teenager, your life is powered almost entirely by clean energy like solar and wind.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will do everything I can to help fight against climate change.

 

Queridas filhas Ana Luísa e Ana Carla,

Que vocês possam contar para seus filhos e netos que minha geração tomou consciência de sua responsabilidade e assumiu sua condição de natureza e a ela se reintegrou, com inteligência, interação respeitosa e solidariedade.

 

Dear Erica and Matthew,

I want you to be able to bring your kids to Tahoe and experience the same clarity that you had as a child.

 

Dear future me,

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.
