Queridas filhas,

O mundo hoje está muito quente. Parece que a cada dia que passa esquenta ainda mais. Nossas represas, abastecimento de água e rios agora são escassos, com muitos estando secos. Nossa interferência no clima através da industrialização causou danos muito sérios na geração dos seus avós, e a minha e de sua mãe começamos a tentar consertar esses danos.

Apesar disso, é de se orgulhar que as pessoas reconheçam que tem algo acontecendo e a culpa é nossa. Temos vários projetos para ajudar a diminuir a contribuição com o aquecimento global. Sua mãe e eu nos esforçamos ao máximo para ajudar a criar um mundo melhor pra vocês duas, e seus avós também fazem muito.

O que mais me enche de alegria é ver que, apesar dessa loucura que é nosso mundo, vocês poderão viver no melhor dele. Quem sabe o que nos aguarda, ou aguarda vocês duas quando tiverem filhos e suas próprias famílias. Há países hoje que fazem de tudo para mudar o que causaram que, há 10 ou 15 anos, nunca pensariam nisso. Vocês serão privilegiadas, e é por isso que eu e sua mãe trabalhamos.

Amamos vocês, minhas princesas.

Com muito amor,
Papai e Mamãe.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate action is to educate youth to create solutions for energy efficiency and conservation opportunities.

 

To My Friends, Family and Future Grandchildren,

I realize my reflection of the past, current and future state of the environment paints a grim and pessimistic picture, but I feel optimistic in our ability to turn planet Earth’s fate around if we all work together and commit to making a change.

 

To my brother’s children,

We wondered about how we might be able to eliminate plastics from our day to day routines, and recycled literally everything. We were amazing, you should have seen us. Now and again though, we wondered if these were the right questions.

 

My dearest children Ameilia and Alivia, 

I want you to hear the whispers of the seasons changing. The rustling of leaves as they gracefully cascade down from their limbs in the fall, birds singing in spring, and frogs that serenade the summer night.

 

Dear friends,

Rather than exploit it, destroy it, poison it, why don’t we just enhance the beauty of it, guard it, and love it?

 

I promise to stop eating junk food.

 

To My Dear Grandchildren,

Be assured that in the upcoming election, I will cast my vote for your future – for elected officials that recognize climate risks and are willing to promote and vote for legislation that will stop environmental damage and begin to heal our planet.

 

Dear future generations,

I pledge to you now that I will work tirelessly and with all my willpower so you don’t have to live in a world where you have to worry about the next storm.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The transformation of human consciousness

 

Dear Finley,

I wonder if in 2050 we will be looking at a future where fear from the changes at hand has caused people to hate rather than love and provide hope. Perhaps in that world we will we no longer comprehend the biblical texts in a meaningful way. Will climate change be the end of the epoch of God?

 

Dear Kai and Leah,

I want you to feel awestruck like I do. It is important to feel small sometimes, to feel the weight of reality, to recognize the scale of a challenge, to see where you fit and what you are up against. This is the case with climate change.

 

To older Rochelle,

You should’ve reduced your carbon footprint, should be using some source of renewable energy and be a vegetarian by now.
