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.

More Messages to the Future

 

To my Maria and her children,

I have to tell you something: it is so hard to keep our life “green” for now, but we still keep trying.

 

Dear Lucie,

Lucie, I love you more than you could ever know and I hope that my promises help contribute to a better world for you and inspire you to take action as well as you grow into the amazing adult I know you will be.

 

To the wonder,

Dear tomorrow, thank you for letting me ride the wave of wonder that reaches toward you for all generations of all species to come.

 

To older Rochelle,

You should’ve reduced your carbon footprint, should be using some source of renewable energy and be a vegetarian by now.

 

Dear X—, Dear A—,

As with our struggles to eliminate police brutality, as with hate crimes, so it is with climate change – there are actually a lot of people out there who care.

 

Dear Tristan,

I am doing this to protect you, the food, water, air and biodiversity of a country that I love.

 

To the People in my Future Life,

Anytime I’m at the crossroads of life, I pray that I, or anyone else in the same position, will keep you in mind, and try to shape a world that’s the best possible for you.

 

Dear Lila

So today, my strong and spunky girl, I promise you this: I will stay vigilant and flexible. I will spread the word.

 

dear earth,

I promise those who walked the Earth before me and those who will walk the Earth after me that I will not stand by and let nature slip through my fingers.

 

Dear Kids,

I know it’s long past time to wake up. You deserve a future in which drought, famine, and war are not all your children ever know; the choices my generation makes now will determine your future.

 

Dear Eleanor,

It seems silly to saddle yourself with guilt for something that hasn’t happened yet. I don’t want to do that. As of today, I don’t really feel guilty. I guess I just want to make sure I keep doing more, so that when you read this, and ask what I’ve done since then, I can still feel good about my efforts.

 

Dear Future Generations,

Dear Future Generations,
