Dear Offspring,

At the point your birth, I can only hope that the world will be environmentally safe and stable. My concern is that major coastal cities will be flooded by melted glaciers, which in turn could lead to economic and social displacement problems. As of right now, our CO2 levels are rising, it has been proven that glaciers are melting and the earth is warming. My personal efforts to curb this dastardly trend are minimal and most likely insignificant. I am consciously recycling, using bikes and other non-polluting or more environmentally safe transportation methods. In the time I have before your birth, I will make attempts to raise awareness to our growing predicaments and environmental challenges. My hope for you all is that you will experience the true beauty of the natural world if we can keep it in place. I will, however, make a formal apology as it seems I have neglected to truly be mindful of my carbon footprint. I haven’t traveled the world, but from what I am told we, as humans, at are at a crossroads. We can choose to neglect our Earth and suffer, or we can decide to be environmentally conscious and reap the rewards of a “clean” Earth. My dream for you offspring is that you do not grow up sheltered from the realisms of the suffering environment.

Love From,

Papa

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Future Ryan,

I promise to be a knight in the campaign of truth seeking.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will do everything I can to help fight against climate change.

 

Dear Future Self,

More than getting through a global pandemic that has already taken hundreds of thousands of lives around the world, our true feat is even larger: to secure our long-term health and the health of the ecosystems upon which we depend for life. To do that, we have to cut our emissions in half in the next ten years, and continue to reduce it beyond that. And to succeed in that, we need to fundamentally shift the way we do EVERYTHING.

I want clean air, clean energy and muddy feet for you. I want this for all children.

Dear Seamus and Tuva,

So it’s 2050. If the good people are winning the greater struggle, fossil fuels are a shamefully long chapter of the past, and there has been a full scale awakening to the need for only renewable, clean energy.
