Dear Future Self,

I have no clue what your life is going to be like. I don’t know what you’ll be doing, if you’ll have created a family of your own, or what type of world you are living in. Will you be writing music, working for an environmental organization, be a therapist? I hope that you have found something that you are passionate about; that thing that keeps you energized even after long days of work, that sense of purpose.

I hope if you want to, you can bring children safely into this world and not have to worry about bringing them up in a safe planet. I hope you see the best in people and have overcome some of your negative thinking. I hope you surround yourself by loving, kind, and caring people. I hope you can still speak spanish. I hope you don’t have to deal with anymore pandemics.

Best,
RD

Dear sons,

I’ve been so busy since 2012 working towards getting a price on carbon.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to clean the earth.

 

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 Eleanor,

You are so small. So innocent. So beautiful. For you and for everyone else, I will try harder.

 

Dear X—, Dear A—,

As with our struggles to eliminate police brutality, as with hate crimes, so it is with climate change – there are actually a lot of people out there who care.

 

Meus filhos,

Devemos conservar nosso planeta. Mas, para se fazer isso, temos que fazer isso juntos. Todos os seres humanos devem estar voltados para cuidar bem do lar em que vivemos e do presente que Deus nos deu para viver: a Terra.

 

To my fellow adventurers,

Don’t stop looking for adventures.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to reach out to more people to ditch driving and consider using public transportation. I promise to convince Marin markets that sensible policies in density and mixed use planning will further enhance everyone’s quality of life.

 

Dear next generation,

Please don’t wait to see the adverse effects instead adopt that river, stream, lake or ocean to make the world a better place.

 

To you, my dear!

In 2050, I will still be fighting against climate change. I feel that it’s not only my duty, but rather my destiny.

 

Dear Soren,

In this world that is changing before our eyes, I believe that is our task: standing unflinchingly on the side of love, connecting with others, and forging ahead together.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to ask five of my friends to plant trees.
