Dear little Greg,

Dear little Greg,
I pledge to leave this world better than I found it so that in 2050 when you’re 36 years old do you have a clean planet to live on. I’ve seen so much destruction in my lifetime and studied the importance of natural resources at Colorado State and learned that if we don’t build green and live green that life as we know it will not exist or be much much worse.
Love,
uncle Mike

AMORI MIEI EMMA DOMINGA E MAMMA AURELIE

Mamma e Papà cercano insieme sempre di darti il meglio però anche tu dovrai fare la tua parte nel mondo.

 

Dear Daughter,

Even when contemplating huge global-historical issues — especially then — it’s important to stay grounded in the present time and place, the specific here and now, and the minute affairs of everyday interpersonal relations.

 

Dear Me,

Today, I promise to keep my spaces clean and my environment cleaner.

 

To my precious children

I want clean air, clean energy and muddy feet for you. I want this for all children.

 

Dear me,

Remember how passionate you felt at 20, I hope you keep that passion in you and are still working on climate 30 years from now.

 

Dear Maya, Emilio and Daniel,

We thought that the world was an endless supply of whatever we wanted… I know it sounds hard to believe, but that is the way it was.

 

My darling Cassidy,

I know I need to write this to you, and I don’t want to because it makes me so sad. I have been desperately avoiding my feelings about climate change, for many years, but especially and with greater intensity every year since you were born.

 

Dear people of The Future,

Thank you for reading. Do your part to save the globe.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will take short showers, eat less meat, and buy local more often.

 

Dear Son,

I hope with effective action to combat this climate change will we have a better world in the future.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Be the person who shows up. Be the person who continues to advocate for change because change is possible – it is possible in the most partisan of politics.

 

To my children – Chase, Maya and Harlan

I hope that we manage to change the system really soon, while there is still time. So that you are not left with the mess, and trying to fix something that you didn’t cause. I hope we figured out a way to be kind, and caring for others who will suffer more than us. A way to let go of the greed and look at ways we can help others rather than take from them.
