My dearest grandbaby boy Everett,

03/02/2017

My Sierra Club Magazine had an article which suggested we write our kids about what we think about climate change:

Life on earth is going to change. The climate has been warming and changing since I was born. I have been aware that people are contributing to this change by releasing more carbon dioxide into the air because we use sequestered (stored) carbon for energy. There are more and more people needing more and more energy for food, transportation, homes, and a consuming lifestyle.

It has been a big concern for me. I think about it a lot and have tried to do some things to help. At my house, I have put in solar panels for electricty and solar panels to heat water. This is called clean energy. I contribute to organizations for the environment and for family planning education. I have ordered an electric car. I try to pool my trips so that I am going for many different errands on one trip. Also, I ride my bicycle sometimes to meetings or shopping. I travel less and recycle more.

I want to leave a world that is good for you. I am thinking of where would be a good place so that you can have food and water. You also need a place to feel safe and a place were you can grow and feel good.

It is important to know what is going on in the world. It is important to keep in balance what we know and how we treat each other. I pray for wisdom for me and for you.

I Love You!

Your Tutu,
Sharon

Cool, now that your jetpack is put away in your garage where you keep your flying car; how did the aliens save us from our own destruction? Did they have this hyper advance vacuum that just sucks all the greenhouse gases out of our atmosphere?

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