Dear future readers,

You must be somewhat amused to learn of this strange cult of climate change that had so many people in its grip back in the early 21st century. I post just to testify that not everyone was sucked into the craziness. By your time I imagine you have much more advanced sources of energy, maybe fusion power, maybe something else. I’m also pretty sure that your world will be just fine and won’t have succumbed to some of the doomsday scenarios the loonies of our own age predict. By the time you read this, I may well be dead, but I wish you all well for a bright future.

Dear Victoria, sugar pie honey bunch, chiquita loquita,

How can I look at your bright eyes and light dance and tell you we are facing a war?

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to buy organic food and run more and bike more! (I could use the exercise.)

 

Dear Future Kids Like Me,

What I hope for future kids like me is that they continue to ride the groundswell of climate change support all the way into action.

Tonight at bedtime, you asked, seemingly out of nowhere, “why are the glaciers disappearing?”

I’m going to commit to raising you with your eyes open. Being aware as much as we can, how to better our environment together.

 

Dear Lillyana,

I will continue to work to make the Earth a cleaner and safer place for you to grow and explore.

 

To My Daughter and Future Grandchildren,

There are so many more things that we can do together to help our Earth from the damage that has been done, and I am so excited to teach you.
