More Messages to the Future
Dear future child,
We’re presenting at conferences, writing articles, and organizing events with the goal of mobilizing our profession to act on climate, and to help them understand that it will deeply impact our mission to preserve history for future generations.
To older Rochelle,
You should’ve reduced your carbon footprint, should be using some source of renewable energy and be a vegetarian by now.
To my dear son,
Last year most of the world’s reefs turned white at some point, but because it was underwater you and your friends didn’t see.
I will never give up on you, on humanity, on the future.
My promise is to work to protest carbon emissions.
I hope, as your father, I’ve done enough to instill within you how science is a wonderful adventure.
For a child I am yet to know,
We are fighting for a shared cause, inspired by our strong and unwavering dedication to preserve the beauty and wonder of our natural world for our children, our grandchildren and their children, and for countless generations to come.
Love, help and build a future in unison that benefits and protects the whole world.
Dear Future Cassie,
I promise to be successful and help save the environment.
Dear Future Ryan,
I promise to be a knight in the campaign of truth seeking.
To my dear children in the year 2050,
I don’t wish to go backwards, but I do wish we would slow down and design our brave new world with more care.
Dear Tomorrow and Dearest Lex,
I do believe that the collective power of everyone’s best efforts can curb the worst effects of climate change, and provide you with a more stable and secure future.
