More Messages to the Future
My climate promise is to stop using electricity too much.
Dear Nova and Remi,
I wish for you both that another kind of life has been discovered, one of peace, moderation and concern for all life.
Happy 34th birthday my son.
To laugh at our efforts as they were on such a small scale, too small some would say to make a difference, and then smile when we think about the number families just like ours that did the same thing.
To the wonderful children of our family – Elayna, Julianna, and James –

But when you are reading this years from now, by the light of a solar powered lamp, know that your dad, mom and millions of others who burned brightly with love for our kids did what we could, when we knew the stakes.
Dear future Child or Grandchild,
Climate is undeniably changing but it is not top priority.
Dear Me of Tomorrow,
I plan to plant more things this spring, as we do every year in our garden.
Queridos amigos sobrevivientes.
Quiero pensar que ustedes serán la diferencia, que tomaran más actos sobre el asunto y no dejaran que nada los detenga.
Dear Potential Future Kiddo,
To think that my choices of sustainable commuting, eating a plant based diet, and working on our City’s zero waste program likely pale in comparison to the impact of not having a baby is nothing short of devastating. Does it make me a bad environmentalist to honor my maternal instincts?
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.
I hope that you start doing things that will help the world.
Dear Future Generations,
I am sorry that you won’t be able to see some other animals such as polar bears, dolphins and whales.
