Dear Fiona and Cora,

It’s your Uncle. We’ve dealt you a pretty bad hand in terms of the world you’re due to inherit. I’m sorry. It isn’t your fault. I want you both to grow up in a world that is sustainable, lush with biodiversity, and fully capable of fostering a life that both of you and every other child deserves. Me, your mom, and your dad enjoyed that, and I want that you for too. I want it for everyone in the world. In 2020 I’m going to start spending my free time with climate activist groups. I’m going to contact my elected officials on a regular basis. I’m going to vote people into office that take the climate crisis seriously and take actionable steps to counter it. I’m going to do everything I can for both of you, and every other child that deserves a future-and that, of course, is all of them.

Dear Alba:

There is still a lot of beauty and I will do what I can to keep it from slipping away.

 

To the Future Generations,

I look at my baby niece today. The newest member of our family, just 3 days old. What will be left for her and her grandchildren?

 

Dear Llewyn, beloved grandson …

I can only say that I devoted myself to doing as much as I could to make it better, to provide for a just transition, and to fight those forces that continued to exploit the Eaarth with extractive methods, methods that always also included oppressing some people–because those doing the oppression believed that they were better and deserved more.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate action is to educate youth to create solutions for energy efficiency and conservation opportunities.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will aim to lower my carbon footprint!

 

My dear granddaughter Christy,

My own curiosity and knowing what a caring, aware young woman you are help me override despair.

 

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 Sinchi,

The world is changing and it is happening fast.

 

Para minha querida filha, Vitória,

Consegue compreender que estamos aqui de passagem e que temos por obrigação apenas tomar emprestado, evitado excessos e principalmente agradecer.

 

Dear me,

Remember how passionate you felt at 20, I hope you keep that passion in you and are still working on climate 30 years from now.

 

I pledge to use less plastic.

 

Dear Brady,

I will work everyday to combat climate change for your today, for your tomorrow!
