Dear Reed-Drake clan,

I promised myself after watching Leonardo Di Caprio’s movie Before the Flood I will make an effort to not to sit by and talk about climate change, but to make efforts to rescue the globe from destruction and greed. I hope I take my passion from young age to an old man when I read this back.

More Messages to the Future

 

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.

 

Dear Tomorrow

Stay Cool and Save the Whales

 

Dear Sinchi,

The world is changing and it is happening fast.

 

Dear Ezmae,

As I write this, I consider giving up as it sometimes seems that all is lost. But then I think of you.

 

Dear Gabriel,

When the worst consequences of climate change still feel far away today, or the barriers to acting on climate change seem steep today, I do not think about today. I think about you, and your world when you are my age.

 

Dear You Tomorrow,

What we failed to do, at least early on, was to see how important it was to put those solutions together. To combine into a way forward.

 

Dear Corey,

I promise to do all within my power to create a world that’s safe for you and your generation.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to contact my local officials on passing measures against climate change

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to include the trees and animals in all my decisions.

 

Dear Nafia,

I also hope that your previous prayers have been answered. The way you wanted to create green jobs for your fellow city dwellers have been fulfilled already.

 

Dear Grandchildren,

So here we are. In 2022 millions of people are suffering from the climate catastrophes, killing pollution and pandemic, not mentioning about poverty, gender and social injustice, racism, wars and dictatorships that can go on as long as bad people in power are allowed to grab our natural resources.

 

Dear Levon,

I hope, as your father, I’ve done enough to instill within you how science is a wonderful adventure.
