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
