Dear (extended) family,

We pledged in 2019 to reduce our carbon emissions to zero by 2030 (www.familyclimateemergency.net) and to regenerate biodiversity. We also pledged to campaign to reduce systemic emissions. We started with an average footprint of 3.5 planets each! After a year of trying this did not change. Only 9 years to go.

More Messages to the Future

 

Hola Cariño,

Life is not easier being a believer but I would not have picked another path. Thanks to my Faith I found my passion to work to stop climate change for your future. Now go play outside and breathe clean air. Dios te bendiga.

 

Dear Potential Future Kiddo,

To think that my choices of sustainable commuting, eating a plant based diet, and working on our City’s zero waste program likely pale in comparison to the impact of not having a baby is nothing short of devastating.  Does it make me a bad environmentalist to honor my maternal instincts?

 

To the wonderful children of our family – Elayna, Julianna, and James –

There is no issue more important to your future and your friends’ future than stemming climate change.

 

Dear AC,

I think a lot about where the right place to live is.

 

Dear Emile and Eloise,

The beauty and majesty of the world of your childhood is as remarkable as the beauty and majesty of mine, but the fragility of your childhood world is so much greater.

 

To the future,

Today, I will hope and envision the future I wish to achieve. Then tomorrow, I will have tough conversations, I will call my local representatives, I will continue to fight for this world.

 

Dear Grandchildren,

So here we are. In 2022 millions of people are suffering from the climate catastrophes, killing pollution and pandemic, not mentioning about poverty, gender and social injustice, racism, wars and dictatorships that can go on as long as bad people in power are allowed to grab our natural resources.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will do my part to help ensure that there is an Earth left when we are done borrowing it.

 

Dear Me of 2050,

I promise that I will plant more trees in places where there are none.

 

I pledge to use less plastic.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to live a car-free lifestyle.

 

To my dearest Gabriel,

What gives me hope is what is yet to come, what you will experience in your lifetime.
