Dear kids,

Today I taught a lesson about climate change and the importance of a united global response which led to a discussion on the importance Paris Agreement.  This made me reflect on when I went to high school and the optimism I had with the Kyoto agreement and the belief we were at the cusp of change.  Decades later it is your generation and the growing youth movement that gives me hope.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Potential Future Kiddo,

To think that my choices of sustainable commuting, eating a plant based diet, and working on our City’s zero waste program likely pale in comparison to the impact of not having a baby is nothing short of devastating.  Does it make me a bad environmentalist to honor my maternal instincts?

 

Olá Pessoal,

Com essas ideias simples e força de vontade, podemos tornar um mundo, um lugar melhor para se viver, com menos mortes, menos lixo, transforma-lo em um mundo diferente.

 

Dear Brady,

I will work everyday to combat climate change for your today, for your tomorrow!

 

Dear Gorasia descendants,

I will do all that I can, and hope my fellow inhabitants join my pursuit, to nurture this planet.

 

Dear Leo,

Last week I took you to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline.

 

To My Future Child(ren),

The fact that you are reading this means that you would know the answer to a question that has kept me up at night more often than I would like to admit: Did I make you proud?

 

Dear Future,

“I knew you would want to know how the future turned out. You got so anxious about climate change as we grew older.  By coming back, I thought I could help you with that.”

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise composting in my house and getting an EV for my first car.

 

Dear future family and friends,

This is our house.

 

To my children,

I am working with 350.org on shutting down the coal and unconventional gas industries in our country because I cannot think of a more direct way to protect you, the food, water and biodiversity we all love and rely on.

 

Dear Abigail and Olivia,

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

 

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.
