Dear My Future Children, Scientists or Not,

No matter what career you may choose to make your own, I ask only that you keep in mind the scientific knowledge you do learn. Learn to take this field, a field that might not make much sense to people at times, and learn to explain it to others in a way that makes sense and makes a difference. It is not about what you learn, but how you use what you learn. Do not ignore science, no matter how often politics may try to swing it in one direction or another, remember that science is objective, it has no political party, no political border, it is something that seeks to benefit us all. Learn to treasure this planet you have and use science to make every effort you can to save it. Hopefully y’all can give the next generation a chance to see the world I do right now. There truly is no price tag on nature, and you or I may never understand how much it is really worth. Stay informed, stay connected, stay scientific. Many thanks and good wishes, and above all, much love for you and this beautiful planet.

Dear Matthew, Sam, and Sophie,

There is a promise in the Bible: ‘I shall restore the years that the locusts have eaten’ and that points to a promise of complete healing and restoration. But until that comes I intend to do my best to ‘save the planet’ in whatever way I can, and I encourage you to do the same.
