More Messages to the Future
Dear old dude Mårten,
I know that the 2019 version of me (today that is) wished and hoped for that I did all within my power to turn the world around without loosing sight on the beauty of being alive.
Greetings 2050 earthling,
Starting in 2015 I committed my life to sustainability.
I promise my next vehicle will be an EV.
I promise to purchase carbon offsets when we fly.
I will turn my gas transmission into an electric car!
I promise to recycle and compost.
Dear Me of Tomorrow,
I plan to plant more things this spring, as we do every year in our garden.
I promise I will take short showers, eat less meat, and buy local more often.
To my Children,
As you look through your window, I hope you will see a bright future. I hope you dream big, and that you have the courage, drive, and fortitude to do everything you can to achieve those dreams.
Dear Malasher and Alex,
My goal was to help you grow into better citizens of our planet; to help you care about our natural world and to make everyday choices that reflect concern for our beautiful earth and our own health as well as encourage you to work together to make changes in our community.
My Mini & Lou,
Since I first sat down with these words, a pandemic has erupted. Racial violence is reaching a fever pitch and protests are raging across the nation. It feels like the planet is succumbing to entropy, slipping further into chaos. But I write to you from a time of shifting tides.
Dear Grandchildren — August and any others who were born after him
I joined millions of other people who wrote letters and made calls urging our leaders to do more to care for the planet.
