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

Dear Erica and Matthew,

Tahoe has always been our favorite place, and I so love spending our summers up there. I love that we walk and bike everywhere, I love the trailheads all around our neighborhood, and I love spending the day paddle boarding into town.  To keep Tahoe the place we love we must continue to support organizations like Sierra Watch that are fighting the Squaw and Martis Valley developments. As a family, we must continue to Keep Squaw True!!! The Tahoe Basin and the clarity of our beloved lake are at stake if we continue to allow huge developments into the basin. I want you to be able to bring your kids to Tahoe and experience the same clarity that you had as a child.

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.

Queridos filhos Heloísa e Henzo,

Tenho muito orgulho da minha função (agente de fiscalização ambiental do Acre) pois é através dela que posso dar um pouco do meu suor, para que no futuro ambos possam ter um lugar melhor para viver.

 

I will recycle stuff I found.

 

Dear Future Grandchild,

We can learn a lot about how to treat others from stories that have been passed from generation to generation.

 

Dear Future Family,

As I’m sitting here trying to think of the best words to say to you all, I am thinking of one major thing: that I can only hope that you all get to experience the incredible beauty created by our planet.
