Dear Tomorrow,

I’m writing this message with one hand. With the other hand, I’m holding our 9–month–old son who fell asleep a few minutes ago.

I know a bit about how our individual day–to–day actions and how government policies are leading us and the earth down an irreversible path. I try to use a bit less energy but that’s about all I do. I don’t change my research topics or actively engage in advocacy work or make more substantial daily changes to what I eat, how I travel and what I do. Deep inside, I might be believing that this will somehow be solved by technological discoveries. And maybe also thinking what difference could one person make anyways. But so much of it is just laziness and apathy.

So yes, I knew about climate change and how dramatically it’ll affect my son’s and other children’s futures but I don’t do much about it… Sounds bad when I put it this way, doesn’t it…

Surrounded by scientists who shared my fears and visions, I often had a hard time to accept that outside our small community climate change received marginal attention.

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.
