Dear Future Self,

As of today April 23, 2020, you are 21 years old. You now have more potential than ever to do something about climate change. Take action now, start by making small changes like, eating less red meat and more fish. It’ll be better for you health wise anyway. In a few years you’ll have your own family that you will teach ways in which you can help Earth. Climate change is something serious, not everyone believes it, but you do. It’s 2020 and the U.S barely even does anything to combat climate change. But every small change counts and makes a difference.

My promise is to take action and be one of the people that will make an impact on Earth by reducing the toxins that affect climate change. I will do that by watching what I eat and incorporating more fruits and veggies, I will be managing my online ordering and not order from long distance countries, I will recycle plastics, and try to avoid any type of plastic utensils.

By taking action now, you will be giving amazing opportunities for future generations to explore the Earth you once did when you were younger and now. In the coming years, I hope to see that Earth has blooming seasons, the arctic poles once again have layers of thick ice to go see and tour, the rainforest will have all of its rare species and most importantly Earth will be able to stick around for us for many years to come. See you soon.. 🙂

I am working with 350.org on shutting down the coal and unconventional gas industries in our country because I cannot think of a more direct way to protect you, the food, water and biodiversity we all love and rely on.

 

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.
