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

Dear Tomorrow,

CO2 has just passed 405 ppm, and we all now know where this is headed. I am so sorry we didn’t realize this predicament sooner, although even then, I’m not sure we could have mustered the collective will to do much about it. We have just guaranteed that the world will never look or feel the same as it did when my grandparents, parents, or I was growing up. I doubt humanity will survive this in the long run, and it will be increasingly miserable for those who do survive. We are a greedy little species, and we probably deserve what we have done to ourselves. Too bad we also wrecked it for all other life on Earth as well.

Dear X—, Dear A—,

As with our struggles to eliminate police brutality, as with hate crimes, so it is with climate change – there are actually a lot of people out there who care.

I want you to see those corn fields in the north, the beautiful beaches down in Florida, and the stars in the woods at night.

Dear Alyssa,

I pray that more and more fathers will realize that to love their children well, they have to love and respect the ecological systems around them too.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I’m not allowed to talk about climate change around family; as my mom warned me, “climate change is not something that people think about in Mississippi.” But I’m worried for my family’s future.

We want your future family to enjoy the same beautiful places we enjoyed.

I hope we can pass on a better place to live so that my grandchildren and their future children can enjoy the beauty of nature that our wonderful God has given us.

 

Hi buddy,

I can now see that the solutions are there, that a transition of the magnitude that is needed, is possible.
