Dear future generations,

I am currently living in the 21st century. In the 19th century our species began the industrial revolution. This changed our world forever and brought our species major advancements. However, these activities depended upon the extraction and burning of fossil fuels. The consumption of these fossil fuels released incredible amounts of carbon dioxide into our atmosphere. The problem with this is that the release of this carbon dioxide is causing our planet to warm. If our planet continues to warm at the current rate, it will be incredible disastrous for our species and all other living things.

The good news is that we are aware that this is going on and it is still not too late to save our planet. The bad news is that we are highly dependent on these fossil fuels and making the switch to renewable energy has been a slow process. The worse news is that a lot of the most powerful people in the world do not believe that human caused climate change is real. This has made the process the reverse these effects very, very difficult.

We have a responsibility to take care of Earth for future generations. By the year 2050 I hope that we are out of the fossil fuel era. This means that people in 2050 have changed their habits, elected believers, and embraced renewable energy. It would be very disappointing if this is not true and we hit the point of no return. This will be especially disappointing since we know exactly which anthropomorphic activities are causing the warming of our planet. Climate change is big news right now. A lot of people are working on the solution, but a lot of people are also fighting against it. It is a very uphill battle.

Queridas filhas Ana Luísa e Ana Carla,

Que vocês possam contar para seus filhos e netos que minha geração tomou consciência de sua responsabilidade e assumiu sua condição de natureza e a ela se reintegrou, com inteligência, interação respeitosa e solidariedade.

 

A love letter to my son

I hope this year is a real turning point and by the time you’re a teenager, your life is powered almost entirely by clean energy like solar and wind.

 

I won’t leave my lights on.

 

Dear Logan,

I am working every second of my life, with every ounce of my being, to ensure that I am leaving you and your brother a planet that is safe and secure.

Fighting for a system that rewards care for people and planet over profit.

 

Dear future generations,

Young people are making a lot of noise and politicians are now listening.

 

Dear Finley,

I wonder if in 2050 we will be looking at a future where fear from the changes at hand has caused people to hate rather than love and provide hope. Perhaps in that world we will we no longer comprehend the biblical texts in a meaningful way. Will climate change be the end of the epoch of God?

 

For my most dear and only daughter,

And I know life more fully because of you whom I live on through. 

 

Dear Tomorrow

I will teach my children about a greener earth.

 

Dear Alyssa,

I pray that more and more fathers will realize that to love their children well, they have to love and respect the ecological systems around them too.
