Dear Grandchildren,

What did I do when I knew about the existential threat caused by human activity impacting the climate? I became a vegetarian, I bought a hybrid car, I installed solar panels on my roof, I xeriscaped the front yard, and planted trees everywhere I could. I tried to eat locally.

I emailed legislators, governors and presidents. I petitioned politicians. I marched in protests and in climate strikes, I donated to environmental action networks. I talked to people I know and tried to persuade them to act. I raised awareness about divestment from fossil fuels. I did everything I knew to do to change what we are doing now so that you can live in a world that is full of beautiful plants and animals and that your life is happy and fulfilling because you have enough clean air, water, and food. I love you so much. I hope that it will be enough.
Love,
Grandma

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Future Family,

As I’m sitting here trying to think of the best words to say to you all, I am thinking of one major thing: that I can only hope that you all get to experience the incredible beauty created by our planet.

 

I will recycle stuff I found.

 

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.

 

Caro me stesso,

Non so dove e con chi sarò nel 2050, spero che sia un anno migliore di quello appena passato .

 

To my precious children

I want clean air, clean energy and muddy feet for you. I want this for all children.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

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

 

Dear Brothers & Sisters All Across Mother Earth,

I promise to wholeheartedly live my life with an awareness of my personal impact on our communities and our planet.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate action is to educate youth to create solutions for energy efficiency and conservation opportunities.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to drive less and walk more.

 

Dear humankind of today and tomorrow,

I do wish to contribute as much as I can, maybe even start a ripple effect, where other people will start taking action too and inspire other people too.

 

Dear Finley,

I wonder if in 2050 we will be looking at a future where fear from the changes at hand has caused people to hate rather than love and provide hope. Perhaps in that world we will we no longer comprehend the biblical texts in a meaningful way. Will climate change be the end of the epoch of God?

 

To my wide-eyed warrioresses,

Since my two daughters emerged into this world, all of my tomorrows have become more dear.
