Dear future,

Today I’m really annoyed that everyone is talking about climate change in Germany and want to change the current way how we deal with climate change. In my opinion, I can say for now that I don’t see any sense in changing the way we deal with climate change in Germany. The renewable energy doesn’t give enough power to supply every German with Power to reload the electric car or keep the house powered. Maybe my later me got a different point of view and that we are in need to change the climate or that someone should start the change. Not even today, the problem is to start a campaign against climate change. Much more, I think the problem is which country starts to solve the problem. In my opinion, Germany isn’t the country that should start with solving the problem. We should begin in countries like China or the USA but not in Germany. Maybe my future me got a different opinion about that topic and maybe will to help to solve the problem.

To my beloved granddaughters, Margaret and Caroline,

Growing up in Germany, I often wondered what my parents had done to oppose the Nazi regime in the 1930’s that led to WWII.  I was so disappointed when I found out how passive they had been. For me, this was formative.

I realize my reflection of the past, current and future state of the environment paints a grim and pessimistic picture, but I feel optimistic in our ability to turn planet Earth’s fate around if we all work together and commit to making a change.

I tried to teach you of the importance of being satisfied with what you had within your hands.
