Dear Grey,

I am here visiting in Portland, the city where you born December 21st, 2016. Portland is a great city. They are already doing so much for climate change. I live in Durham, North Carolina. Our city is trying but they are not up to Portland standards.

I can tell you what I have done to help global warming. I have put solar panels on my roof. I hope everyone does that. The costs are coming down and to me it seems like a no brainer. The sun is beating down on us. Why not capture that energy? I also have put in a very environmentally sound driveway that allows the rain to soak thru to the soil and below so it does not run off into the street carrying bad stuff to our water supply.

There are many things a consumer can do to offset our carbon footprint. Where I live I do drive a lot. We do not have the good transit system that Portland has, sorry to say. I know that driving is not good and I would like to get an electric car in the future. It my driving years may be coming to an end soon, since I am approaching eighty years of age. I think you will be around 30 when you read this. I hope you find the world in good shape and that we have done a good job about global warming.

Stay well my sweet child.

Love you.

Rachel and Noelle,

I hope in a small way this helps your world.

Less meat, more on my feet!

 

To my sons,

I’m voting with climate change as a top priority. I’ve tried to teach you boys that we need to clean up after ourselves and take care of the earth. I promise to continue doing these actions and more, for your sake.

 

Dear Eleanor,

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

 

Dear Future Sami Lee,

Everyone currently in life laughs and yells save the bees. We were a bee this year for Halloween and Lucy even came up with a great slogan “get with it honey”.

 

Dear Jamie and Jason,

My inspiration was the two of you. It started with thinking about the world you were inheriting and what your future was going to be like. But then you taught me how important it is to listen to you – to listen to young people.

 

Querido amanhã,

Eu quero esse mundo melhor para você, onde o povo tem voz, seja lá quem você seja, eu vou fazer se tudo para proporcionar um mundo melhor para você.

 

For those who come after us,

This is for the countless children I already see suffering the impact of climate change around the world, and the generations to follow.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Don’t use plastic straws!

 

Dear Anabelle and Bruce,

My desire is for clean air, clean water, rich soil, and healthy nutritious food for you and all children always everywhere.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to put in a rain catcher tank.

 

Dear future Child or Grandchild,

Climate is undeniably changing but it is not top priority.
