Dear Tara,

I want you to know that while much of the world twiddled its thumbs and scratched its pointy head about whether humans could really have an impact on the climate, I was working every day to make your future life a little bit easier. Each of us only has so much power and the problem is HUGE, but I worked at this every day. I say this not to blow my own little horn but to convince you of how deep my love is for you and those who will share your world when I am but a memory.

I love you, Uncle Tim

Dear Llewyn, beloved grandson …

I can only say that I devoted myself to doing as much as I could to make it better, to provide for a just transition, and to fight those forces that continued to exploit the Eaarth with extractive methods, methods that always also included oppressing some people–because those doing the oppression believed that they were better and deserved more.
