Dear Mitch JR,

Dear Mitch JR, you are my son and I love you. We are already seeing the cataclysmic effects of global climate change and sadly it is going to get worse. Worse to a point I hope this note reaches you. It is common for every current generation to throw blame on the past generation, and I hope mine is the one that takes initiative. I promise I will take action and make a difference so you can live a healthy life with an abundance of resources and a stable climate. I will push for renewable energy sources, the whole world can get on board. Many nations in Europe are taking huge strides in renewables and seeing these wind farms in the French countryside first hand is inspiring to say the least. We need to take a step back, view our anthropogenic impacts. I think we need to restructure how we are growing food, move towards renewables and start more extensive conservation work. Scientists need to be valued and we can no longer have partisan views on this issue. I have faith somehow in this generation and we can make change.

To My Dear Children, Jackson Carlo and Stella Jane,

I am a better person because of you, and I want the world to be a better place for you.

 

Dear future love,

A culture of consumption is the reason that my world faces such an ecological crisis, it is both necessary and proper to address the fundamental mindsets that have created such a destructive culture.

 

Dear Abigail and Olivia,

What stories will you tell them about our generation? Will we be heroes or villains?

 

Dear Me of Tomorrow,

I plan to plant more things this spring, as we do every year in our garden.

 

To My Friends, Family and Future Grandchildren,

I realize my reflection of the past, current and future state of the environment paints a grim and pessimistic picture, but I feel optimistic in our ability to turn planet Earth’s fate around if we all work together and commit to making a change.

 

Filha,

Saiba que enquanto eu tiver vida, minha voz não calará para alertar o mal que estamos fazendo agora para as nossas gerações futuras…

Queridas crianças do mundo inteiro,

Pedimos que vocês procurem fazer como nós e continuem essa luta de colaborar com nosso planeta: evitando o consumo exagerado, usando a tecnologia para o bem, plantando árvores, economizando água e poluindo menos.

 

To my sons,

I’m voting with climate change as a top priority. I’ve tried to teach you boys that we need to clean up after ourselves and take care of the earth. I promise to continue doing these actions and more, for your sake.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to put in a rain catcher tank.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate promise: community awareness of the climate crisis.

 

Dear Eleanor,

It seems silly to saddle yourself with guilt for something that hasn’t happened yet. I don’t want to do that. As of today, I don’t really feel guilty. I guess I just want to make sure I keep doing more, so that when you read this, and ask what I’ve done since then, I can still feel good about my efforts.
