Dear Kieara, Suzannah and Alan,

Your Papa spent most of his 40 yr. career working on chemical environmental cleanups including nuclear waste and developing advanced technology, appropriate for the era, for these efforts. I also spent over 10 yrs. working in Russia at dangerous sites involving dismantlement of weapons of mass destruction and helping to safely store and eventually rid our planet of nuclear weapons. This helped I think to make your world a little more safe. However my most important work was after I retired, working with an organization called Elders Climate Action to help organize and combat the effects of climate change. My wish is that due to my small efforts combined with the thousands of our generation who stepped up, your planet is much, much better than it would have been had we not acted and your family’s future is bright and safe from the ravishes of a runaway climate.
Much love,
Your Grandfather Steve
