Dear Tomorrow,

The actions that I can take is honestly, quite simple in writing, but will be much harder to do in reality. I will stop using single use plastic. I will use my reusable water bottle everyday, bring a reusable Starbucks cup to Starbucks, bring canvas bags to the grocery store. Additionally, I will try to eat less meat and take quicker showers to limit my water footprint. Most likely, the most impactful action I can take is support good climate change policy and hold my elected officials accountable.
While all of these actions I can take will help make my visualization a reality, I also know I cannot do it alone. I will encourage my friends to look at the data and make changes in their lives to help improve their footprints. All of this is not all I will do, I will continue to learn and educate myself and others so that all of us together can do more than the minimum to help fight this crisis.

Son,

Make the most of every day because remember yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift.

 

Dear fantastic,

We as the human race are smarter than this struggle at hand and need to rise above large corporate interests and confusion on this topic.

 

I promise to plant trees and to turn off the lights.

 

To my children,

I am working with 350.org on shutting down the coal and unconventional gas industries in our country because I cannot think of a more direct way to protect you, the food, water and biodiversity we all love and rely on.

 

Dear Daughter,

I want you to be prepared for the world that the generations before you are creating for you. I love you Lucienne, and I will not give up. I will push you and teach you not to give up, either, even if others around you do.

 

Dear me,

Remember how passionate you felt at 20, I hope you keep that passion in you and are still working on climate 30 years from now.

 

To Annika, Anders, Stella, Eva, and Mickey,

In writing to you, I realize that I don’t want you to be hard on yourself if you choose to not make this your cause. But it is mine, so I hope that you hold me accountable to some of what I wrote here.

 

Dear future child,

We’re presenting at conferences, writing articles, and organizing events with the goal of mobilizing our profession to act on climate, and to help them understand that it will deeply impact our mission to preserve history for future generations.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I am so sorry we didn’t realize this predicament sooner.

 

Dear future me,

If we don’t stop cutting down trees for agriculture and to build houses then the future generations will not think about trees when they hear the word Earth.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to reach out to more people to ditch driving and consider using public transportation. I promise to convince Marin markets that sensible policies in density and mixed use planning will further enhance everyone’s quality of life.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to eat less meat.
