Dear grand nieces and nephews,

In 2050 you five will be in your mid 30s. An exciting time of life. I wish you all happiness, knowing that my generation, your great uncles, aunts and grandparents took the opportunity to change the world enomomy. To add exciting innovation of clean technologies to power our lives. A cascade of good things came out of our changing—good health, more trees, better soils, more wetlands, cows walking on the beach not in treeless pastures, communities thriving from local investment, wonderful innovations and new technologies. I wish you this security knowing we changed because we love you.

More Messages to the Future

 

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.

 

To my daughter and son,

Surrounded by scientists who shared my fears and visions, I often had a hard time to accept that outside our small community climate change received marginal attention.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

We only have 11 years left until the damage done by climate change is irreversible.

 

Dear Elliot and Alana,

But being truthful, I know we are not yet on the path that will lead to the change that is needed; but it is visible.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I haven’t met you yet, but I already know you deserve a better tomorrow.

 

Dear Rowan and Anaka,

If we could talk, I would not be able to bear your gaze as you ask: How could you, the people in a position to change the course of climate change, fail to act?

 

Dear Valentina & Luis,

You both know I have made it my mission to get people to understand more about the state of our planet‘s climate and what was at stake.

 

Dear Daughter,

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

 

Dear Nova and Remi,

I wish for you both that another kind of life has been discovered, one of peace, moderation and concern for all life.

 

dear future people (:

I hope that people are still enjoying the wonders that nature has to offer.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to pick up trash at every beach I visit 🙂 and to bike for local errands.

 

Dear Abigail and Olivia,

What stories will you tell them about our generation? Will we be heroes or villains?
