Dear me,

You’re about to graduate college. Today you’re about to finish your thesis and give that big carbon 2030 presentation. 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. You’re currently looking for a job to do absolutely anything to try and help save the world, I hope you find something! Job hunting is stressful, especially during a pandemic. I hope all the energy and love you put into working on sustainability pays off, and that by 2050 we are well on our way towards drawing down climate change. Maybe by then we won’t even call it a crisis anymore.

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.
