I promise to educate myself and others about how we can protect and nourish our 1 PLANET
I promise to never use a plastic straw.
I’ll be here to tell you all the ways I have fought for the health of our home, and fought to protect all of the wide, open spaces for you to run in. When you’re old enough, we can fight together.
Dear Resident of 14 Back Road in Dover, NH
Twenty-nine years from now I hope you are looking at the property and seeing the mature results of this effort. These plants, shrubs and trees will all help to pull CO2 from the air.
Each of us only has so much power and the problem is HUGE, but I worked at this every day.
Dear Future Self,
More than getting through a global pandemic that has already taken hundreds of thousands of lives around the world, our true feat is even larger: to secure our long-term health and the health of the ecosystems upon which we depend for life. To do that, we have to cut our emissions in half in the next ten years, and continue to reduce it beyond that. And to succeed in that, we need to fundamentally shift the way we do EVERYTHING.
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.
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 Future Kids Like Me,
What I hope for future kids like me is that they continue to ride the groundswell of climate change support all the way into action.
Dear Granddaughter Rosalia,
This is my heritage for you my beautiful cacheticos de melon.
Dear Owen and Vivian,
Here’s the biggest secret: I KNOW it will have. We may not realize how, but we have changed the world.
“I knew you would want to know how the future turned out. You got so anxious about climate change as we grew older. By coming back, I thought I could help you with that.”
