Dear future child,

I want this beautiful Earth to still be here when you are older. I want you to be able to enjoy it like I have.

Climate change is happening as I write this to you now. It’s been happening, we see its affects everywhere, yet some people chose not to believe in science. We need positive change, we need it now, before it’s too late.

When you turn 16 and can explore the world on your own, I want you to do just so. I want you to visit every forest, every lake, every ocean you can. We live in a beautiful place, even if it’s hidden by factories and landfills.

I promise, I am doing everything I can to give you this opportunity in your future. There is still hope for our planet.

Dear Gabriel,

When the worst consequences of climate change still feel far away today, or the barriers to acting on climate change seem steep today, I do not think about today. I think about you, and your world when you are my age.

 

Dear Maya, Emilio and Daniel,

We thought that the world was an endless supply of whatever we wanted… I know it sounds hard to believe, but that is the way it was.

 

Dear Samuel, Willa, and Ben,

To the core of my being, and only through the power of community, I will honor the voices of the youth who are pleading, “Don’t burn my future.” Samuel, Willa, and Ben, your little voices I know, will join that chorus soon enough.

 

Dear Rosie,

But when you are reading this years from now, by the light of a solar powered lamp, know that your dad, mom and millions of others who burned brightly with love for our kids did what we could, when we knew the stakes.

 

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.

 

My grandchildren,

I promise to do my very best to educate your parents as best I can.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I’ll buy only food that I plan to eat before it spoils.

 

dear future people (:

I hope that people are still enjoying the wonders that nature has to offer.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I hope that environmental issues are a thing of the past.

 

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.

 

People of tomorrow,

Your path will only be as clear tomorrow as we have made it for you today.

 

To my dear son,

Last year most of the world’s reefs turned white at some point, but because it was underwater you and your friends didn’t see.
