Dear Future Self,

It’s hard to imagine you reading this 30 years from now. I guess that means that the human race has not succumb to the 6th great extinction event as a result of climate change, so that’s good news! As I write to you from 2020, things are pretty grim. With numerous natural disasters, melting ice caps, perpetually polluted air and water accompanied by leaders that not only refuse to combat climate change, but deny its existence entirely, we are headed downhill fast. There is not a single doubt in my mind that climate change is real and is an imminent threat. I’m doing what I can to lessen my impact, reducing my own wast and energy usage and figuring out ways to live more sustainably, and I hope others are too, but there is always MORE. I know that if we stop emissions right now, you would likely still be feeling the effects in 2050. But I hope that is the case and emissions do not just continue to stack up and make it hard for you to clearly see those beautiful Rocky Mountains. I hope to ensure you a lifetime of hiking, climbing, and fishing and healthy places to do those in.

So here’s to you, with hope and determination!

To my children – Chase, Maya and Harlan

I hope that we manage to change the system really soon, while there is still time. So that you are not left with the mess, and trying to fix something that you didn’t cause. I hope we figured out a way to be kind, and caring for others who will suffer more than us. A way to let go of the greed and look at ways we can help others rather than take from them.

 

Dear Josh, LeeAnn, & Jessica,

I am very proud to know that You will treat Our Earth, Our Natural Gift, Our Playful Backyard with the same Awesome Respect that We give to each other, as a Family – Knowing that Our Earth, is Your Child Now.
