dear future self,

I hope this reaches you by about 2050. Honestly, there is a chance that climate change got really bad and you can never get back on this website, or that you died. But I doubt that. If you are still kicking I hope for you that the world is still functioning somewhat normally. I hope you are taking a shower once a week, I hope you are still having to replace AA batteries, and I really hope that you are paying taxes with paper money. I hope that at this point either climate change has been solved or everyone has given up on it. 30 years of hoping is a life wasted.

Paz e bem

Vivamos a vida com intensidade, Não nos importando a localidade.

 

To my future children,

I am doing everything I can because I want the footprint that I leave behind to be my feet in the sand on a beach and not a carbon one.

 

Dear Future Self,

It was 2020, the year I realized that life is fragile—not just mine, but the entire planet—through immense consumption, pollution, greediness, ignorance, false bliss. This wasn’t the way I wanted to live my life, so I promise to actively make the change.

 

Dear Luna,

I will never give up on you, on humanity, on the future.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will aim to lower my carbon footprint!

 

Dear Annalyse and Greyson,

See people can say they care about climate change, but caring is not action.

 

Dear Brady,

I will work everyday to combat climate change for your today, for your tomorrow!

 

Cari nipoti,

Siamo nel 2017 e vi assicuro che sto facendo tutto il possibile per rendere questo pianeta un posto migliore.

 

Dear Maddie,

Please know that I have tried very hard to be one of those people, to even make the smallest of changes in order to improve the world for you and your future.

 

To my beloved granddaughters, Margaret and Caroline,

Growing up in Germany, I often wondered what my parents had done to oppose the Nazi regime in the 1930’s that led to WWII.  I was so disappointed when I found out how passive they had been. For me, this was formative.

 

To My Dear Children, Jackson Carlo and Stella Jane,

I am a better person because of you, and I want the world to be a better place for you.

 

Oi Luc,

Estou esperando ansiosa sua chegada pra que a gente possa fazer muitas coisas boas juntos, uma delas, é cuidar bem do nosso planeta.
