This planet and our future is too important to watch slip away.

To all future generations,

I see people all around me consuming enormous amounts of everything. I too was recently once a mass contributor to living beyond my means. And sadly, I see future generations being failed by our past and current misconceptions. My own family laughs at the concept of global warming. However, despite the laughs I get in what I believe in now, my hopes are that my efforts will make a difference and inspire even just a few to join in. It’s time to educate, change, and walk the walk. This planet and our future is too important to watch slip away.

More Messages to the Future

 

Aos meus sobrinhos queridos, Ana Laura, Luis Carlos e Helloísa,

Talvez eu não esteja viva para ver alguma mudança, mas espero que vocês vejam e tenham um mundo melhor em 2050. Plantei um ipê rosa e outro amarelo, que eles estejam florindo até 2050.

 

Minhas lindas,

As causas das mudanças no clima são tão profundas e envolvem tanta gente e tantos lugares.

 

Dear Future Grandchild,

We can learn a lot about how to treat others from stories that have been passed from generation to generation.

 

Filha,

Saiba que enquanto eu tiver vida, minha voz não calará para alertar o mal que estamos fazendo agora para as nossas gerações futuras…

 

Jeremy M,

My promise is to work to protest carbon emissions.

 

Dear Anabelle and Bruce,

My desire is for clean air, clean water, rich soil, and healthy nutritious food for you and all children always everywhere.

 

To my children,

I am working with 350.org on shutting down the coal and unconventional gas industries in our country because I cannot think of a more direct way to protect you, the food, water and biodiversity we all love and rely on.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I haven’t met you yet, but I already know you deserve a better tomorrow.

 

Dear Little Loves,

Protecting our planet is so similar to parenting; it requires interest, dedication, thoughtfulness, knowledge, attention, and love.

 

To my Dad,

I hope on this Father’s Day, my 24th birthday, and the rest of days, we remember that the most basic part of life is living happy with the ones we love. Acting every day against climate change will allow us to keep that simple piece of humanity.

 

To my daughter and son,

Surrounded by scientists who shared my fears and visions, I often had a hard time to accept that outside our small community climate change received marginal attention.

 

Dear ‘Roxy’ (Aliyah),

Most importantly and I mean MOST importantly, spread peace, love and positivity.
