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.

Dear Maya, Emilio and Daniel,

I hope that the world will be better when you read this. ..
I must say that in my youth I was not worried at all about climate change… It simply was something that was not on the news or on almost anybody’s mind. We were simply unconscious that we were harming the planet and 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… I certainly do not feel good about it and today I strongly believe that we must put conservation before greed and I am sure that you guys will do a lot better than I did to take care of the Earth. I am sure we are still in pretty good time to make things the right way!!

Dear Alba:

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

 

I won’t leave my lights on.

 

To my beloved granddaughters, Margaret and Caroline,

Growing up in Germany, I often wondered what my parents had done to oppose the Nazi regime in the 1930’s that led to WWII.  I was so disappointed when I found out how passive they had been. For me, this was formative.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to buy organic food and run more and bike more! (I could use the exercise.)

 

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.

 

Dear Peyton and Lucas,

I want you to continue to enjoy bright, beautiful, blue skies, gigantic shady trees, chirping birds, scampering squirrels, sparkling creeks and all that this amazing world has to offer!

 

To Annika, Anders, Stella, Eva, and Mickey,

In writing to you, I realize that I don’t want you to be hard on yourself if you choose to not make this your cause. But it is mine, so I hope that you hold me accountable to some of what I wrote here.

 

I pledge to use less plastic!

 

Minhas lindas,

As causas das mudanças no clima são tão profundas e envolvem tanta gente e tantos lugares.

 

To our future generations,

I want you to know that some of us do care and we are working towards a better future for you.

 

Loved One,

That we all have a role to play no matter how small, we all can make a difference.

 

Dear grandkids,

I believe this fusion of ecology and economy backed by the digital technology is our great achievement.
