Dear family,

I hope you live in a world where the environment and climate change is no longer a pressing concern. I hope the inventors of the world have developed a new way to be human without taking from the natural world we live in. I hope your generation has figured it out by realizing that it is not ‘humans vs the world’. That humans are part of the world and we need to work for the silent planet.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Ari and Levi,

Luckily, we have figured out ways to build things without making the air dirty, and we are trying very hard to get more people to switch over to this new way as fast as we can.

 

Dear Makena,

Sweetie, you deserve clean air, water and soil. You deserve to thrive in an environment that supports you.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to pick up trash at every beach I visit, use metal straws, take quick showers.

 

Dear Oliver,

I am getting your father on board too so that we can double charge this together.

 

Dear Soren,

In this world that is changing before our eyes, I believe that is our task: standing unflinchingly on the side of love, connecting with others, and forging ahead together.

 

Dear Future Earth,

I promise to promote the growth of clean energy, like solar… For the sake of my grandchildren.

 

Dear Finn and Cy,

I think a lot about what you might be like when you grow up and about what kind of world you will live in.

 

Dear Matthew, Sam, and Sophie,

There is a promise in the Bible: ‘I shall restore the years that the locusts have eaten’ and that points to a promise of complete healing and restoration. But until that comes I intend to do my best to ‘save the planet’ in whatever way I can, and I encourage you to do the same.

 

Dear future generations,

Past generations took all the trees, polluted all the water, fished all the fish, and hunted all the animals so that there’s almost nothing nice left.

 

To My Grandchildren,

It’s my hope that the following will be helpful as you navigate your futures.  These are the confessions of a climate activist:

 

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.

 

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.
