Para Gael,

Querido hijo.

Cuando tú naciste, mi vida cambió. Empezó a tener un nuevo sentido, porque el futuro, antes de ese gran momento, era únicamente para mí. Yo solo quería ser feliz con tu mamá, ganando cada vez más dinero y buscando reconocimiento en mi carrera profesional. Sin embargo, cuando tu llegaste a mi vida, el futuro para mi empezó a ser tu futuro. Y deseo que, en tu futuro, tengas las mismas oportunidades que yo he tenido, con acceso a todas las cosas simples que La Tierra nos da: agua fresca, aire limpio y un lugar seguro donde vivir. Espero que las acciones (cambios) que estoy tomando en mi estilo de vida (principalmente, utilizando racionalmente todo lo que necesito), te ayudarán a alcanzar un futuro mejor que el mío. Anhelo que tú también hagas lo mismo, por tus hijos, y por todos los que te rodean.
Con todo mi amor.
Tu papa.

More Messages to the Future


Dear Nolan, Patrick, Cullen and Gabriel,

This Mother’s Day I am again thinking of my grandsons future and what I am doing to change the world if only by a small fraction.


My Dear Paloma,

I’m going to commit to raising you with your eyes open. Being aware as much as we can, how to better our environment together.


Dear Future,

I asked you, the future , to help us as well, to preserve our only planet that can give us life, that can let us watch anime, go to the beach, smell flowers, run through the meadow, listen to our songs, be in a concert, and let us live.


To my dearest Gabriel,

What gives me hope is what is yet to come, what you will experience in your lifetime.


To My Grandchildren,

It’s my hope that the following will be helpful as you navigate your futures.  These are the confessions of a climate activist:


Rachel and Noelle,

I hope in a small way this helps your world.


Querida Alê,

Por você idealizei um mundo melhor e lutei incessantemente por ele.


Dear little one,

In the coming months, we plan to complete a full assessment of our environmental impact online. We hope to discover our biggest areas of resource consumption, learn what we can do better, and create an action plan to improve over the next year.


To My Future Children,

Most importantly, I hope you live in a world where science is taken seriously and fact is clearly distinguished from fiction.


Dear Jamie and Jason,

My inspiration was the two of you. It started with thinking about the world you were inheriting and what your future was going to be like. But then you taught me how important it is to listen to you – to listen to young people.


dear me in 2030,

I am smelling burning plastic!


Dear People Of The Future,

It’s scary, this is the stuff you see in movies about the end of the world.
