Dear Ernie,

I’m so sorry we didn’t act sooner. I wish I could tell you exactly why but human beings struggle with taking action now on faraway consequences. We always have. Probably always will. I have always believed that climate change was real but aside from supporting organizations fighting to reverse it and recycling, I never did much else. I’m trying to change that now and trying to figure out what that looks like. I’m worried it’s too little too late but I’m going to anyway. I hope the future isn’t too horrible – I fear the worst.

Dear future self,

Dear Jamie and Jason,

My inspiration was the two of you. It started with thinking about the world you were inheriting and what your future was going to be like. But then you taught me how important it is to listen to you – to listen to young people.

 

To My Future Nephews,

I want you to see those corn fields in the north, the beautiful beaches down in Florida, and the stars in the woods at night.

 

Dear Tomorrow

Dear future loved ones,

As I sit here and write to you, I’d like to share with you something more horrifying than a few boos – our current home, Earth.

 

To my dear son,

Last year most of the world’s reefs turned white at some point, but because it was underwater you and your friends didn’t see.
