Dear Lucie,

This letter is for you, your future and the future of your children I hope to meet one day.

You have been fortunate to have been to many of the wonderful natural places this country and the world has in abundance. I want you and your children to have the same opportunity to experience the amazing landscapes, lakes, rivers, forests, mountains and the plants and animals that thrive there.

I want you and generations to come to be protected from toxic air, water, irresponsibly farmed food and dangerous products. I want you to live in a world that is smart about using its precious resources and resolute in battling the forces that contribute to our changing climate.

To that end, I promise to do what I can to contribute to these efforts. I promise to support local organizations like NYPIRG that have kept fracking out of beautiful upstate New York. I promise to support renewable energy starting with choosing wind power from my local utility and investing in solar panels for our home. I promise to ride my bicycle and much as I can and take mass transit when I can’t. I promise to reduce waste, recycle and compost our food waste at our local community garden. I promise to consume locally produced and organic food. I promise to continue to support to education for underserved communities as everyone should have the opportunity to participate in solving these complex problems.

Lucie, I love you more than you could ever know and I hope that my promises help contribute to a better world for you and inspire you to take action as well as you grow into the amazing adult I know you will be.

Love mom

I believe i have truly played my part in raising awareness and practical solutions to climate change.

 

Dear Gabriel,

When the worst consequences of climate change still feel far away today, or the barriers to acting on climate change seem steep today, I do not think about today. I think about you, and your world when you are my age.

Dear Alba:

There is still a lot of beauty and I will do what I can to keep it from slipping away.

You are growing up in a time of immense change. In the last two years alone, we’ve learned so much about big and important issues including climate change and the systemic racism that runs through our institutions.

Dear future me,

If we don’t stop cutting down trees for agriculture and to build houses then the future generations will not think about trees when they hear the word Earth.

How can I look at your bright eyes and light dance and tell you we are facing a war?
