Dear Future Generations:

As you read this, you are undoubtedly aware of the legacy of waste and destruction that has been left by our generation.

I will work to promote discussion, learning, and action about how our collective choices about the things we buy, use and all-too-quickly discard represent wasted natural resources, a disregard for human labor, and a legacy of embodied carbon emissions for future generations to deal with.

I am focused on changing how we build and maintain our world, working to find ways that will make our infrastructure more efficient and sustainable, as the earth is more vulnerable than our generation ever imagined.

Meaningful environmental change is a long game, and I commit to being persistent and patient with even routine choices and changes in my lifestyle that can yield meaningful results. We owe your generation a more inclusive, sustainable and resilient future. I am committed to do all that I can personally and professionally to raise awareness of the impact our actions have on the planet, and help us get there.

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.

 

To my precious grandchildren, Emma, Maya, Maddie and Will,

With love and a great hope for the future, a future that will be healthy and sustainable for you, my precious grandchildren.

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.
