Dear Future People,

Right now, the United States government, under Donald Trump, is denying climate change. They have even cancelled events in which scientists discuss climate change. All of the students and people working in the environmental field, as well as other concerned citizens, are deeply worried about this issue. It is past the point of preventing, we now have to learn to live with our choices and the Trump Administration has just put us back many years of progress. I hope by the time someone sees this in 2050, this will no longer be an issue and the public, as well as the government, will be on the same side, battling climate change and doing everything we can to stop it. I truly hope this is a transformative time in world history and humanity will be on a better track. However, we have a long way ahead of us and environmentally concerned people, such as myself, are working very hard to make people aware and get this process started because the choices we are making right now are not sustainable for the future.

Dear Lila

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

 

For my most dear and only daughter,

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

 

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.

 

Dear Daughter,

Even when contemplating huge global-historical issues — especially then — it’s important to stay grounded in the present time and place, the specific here and now, and the minute affairs of everyday interpersonal relations.

 

Dear Finn and Cy,

I think a lot about what you might be like when you grow up and about what kind of world you will live in.

 

Dear Daughter,

I want you to be prepared for the world that the generations before you are creating for you. I love you Lucienne, and I will not give up. I will push you and teach you not to give up, either, even if others around you do.

 

Dear little one,

In the coming months, we plan to complete a full assessment of our environmental impact online. We hope to discover our biggest areas of resource consumption, learn what we can do better, and create an action plan to improve over the next year.

 

To my future children,

Never before would I have said that I am one to take initiative.

 

The future needs a big kiss

Our world is in an ongoing crisis that has lasted for decades.

 

Dear Thomas,

When you look at me with those big beautiful eyes and that innocent smile, you make me want to fight harder. And I do.

 

Dear Maret,

Right now I want to be hopeful. Right now I want to think that we took action to ensure this beautiful future for you.

 

Dear Evan,

What has most inspired me to act is wanting to be able to look you in the eye and say, “When I became aware of the existential threat of climate change, I did all I could.”  Despite my pessimism, I act in the hope it can make a difference for future generations and all the precious life on our fragile planet.
