Dear Emma,

You think a lot about how individual acts and lifestyle changes are necessary for people to understand what is they are truly impacting. Research and volunteering can help you to make more positive impacts on the environment, while abandoning old habits that are detrimental to our ecosystem. You want to live waste free, but you can’t convince those around you that it’s possible. It’s the hypocrisy of humanity, but today it’s possible. One thing to remember is that you’ve adopted a way to divert food waste from the landfill and prevent climate change, but what about food packaging! You need to eat more fresh food, not just to avoid food packaging, but also to benefit your health! Another really important part of the environment is education; so many people live their life as if the Earth is disposable, but it’s so much more than that, and since you know and are continuing to lean more and more about the reality of the environment, you can help in bringing awareness. Today, your promise is to prevent waste, promote education, stay healthy, and live sustainably.

More Messages to the Future

 

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.

 

Dear Kiya,

Fighting for a system that rewards care for people and planet over profit.

 

To my dear children in the year 2050,

I don’t wish to go backwards, but I do wish we would slow down and design our brave new world with more care.

 

Dear My Future Child,

I want to sculpt a world for you where you can play outside without gas masks, an ocean to swim in without toxins, and a thick lively forest for you to wander.

 

Dear Alex and Vivian,

This is my most important work.

 

To my sons,

I’m voting with climate change as a top priority. I’ve tried to teach you boys that we need to clean up after ourselves and take care of the earth. I promise to continue doing these actions and more, for your sake.

 

To my darling ones,

And it’s not that I don’t care. I care deeply. For you three, and the families I hope you will have one day; for the many beautiful places I have had the privilege to know, places which take my breath away, that fill my heart with a bursting joy and connectedness to something so much greater than I, places I know may be quite different when you are my age

 

Dear sons,

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

 

Dear Victoria, sugar pie honey bunch, chiquita loquita,

How can I look at your bright eyes and light dance and tell you we are facing a war?

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to go to the farmer’s market more

 

Querido amanhã,

Em fim, espero que você receba essa mensagem, e entenda o quão pequenos nos somos e como é importante preservar o planeta terra.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will do whatever I can to protect and preserve mother Earth for future generations.
