My dear unborn child,

Climate change is a big topic. You are confronted with it in every situation in life because there were so many things that we did wrong. But not only my generation. Also, the generation before mine. Climate change is real. I know that some people refuse to believe that climate change is real. I think we should do more to stop it and we should talk more about it. In school, at home with the family with your friends, in politics… We all have to know what every single person can take action to stop climate change or to reduce it. If each of us makes his or her contribution, maybe you too will see polar bears and beautiful nature. I hope that I can teach you to deal with these problems, also with such big ones as climate change. I hope I can teach you what is important in life and the future of our planet. I also hope that my generation has done the best thing for solving this big problem. I hope that you and your whole generation will be proud of your parents and that we leave you a world in which you can live without having to worry more than we do. I hope you can live your life and not have to worry about your life.

In love, your mom

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 grandchild,

There is a place on this planet called the Amazon, and I don’t mean the online shopping site (is that still a thing in your time?).

 

Dear Son,

I hope with effective action to combat this climate change will we have a better world in the future.

 

Dear Elliot and Alana,

But being truthful, I know we are not yet on the path that will lead to the change that is needed; but it is visible.

 

Dear Annalyse and Greyson,

See people can say they care about climate change, but caring is not action.

 

Dear sons,

I’ve been so busy since 2012 working towards getting a price on carbon.

 

We will look back on our time here and ask, “What did I do?”

If we truly live our present moment, maybe you’ll have a future.

 

Dear Tara,

Each of us only has so much power and the problem is HUGE, but I worked at this every day.

 

Dear Nieces, Nephews, & Future Children…

If there is any advice I could give you, it is to believe that although you are one single person in this world, you still have the ability to make a difference in this world.
