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

 

Dear Luna,

I will never give up on you, on humanity, on the future.

 

To my children,

If there is one thing that I taught you it is to be honest in your decisions as they pertain to yourselves and the earth in which you live.

 

AMORI MIEI EMMA DOMINGA E MAMMA AURELIE

Mamma e Papà cercano insieme sempre di darti il meglio però anche tu dovrai fare la tua parte nel mondo.

 

Son,

Make the most of every day because remember yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift.

 

Dear Zhengqing Gao,

Fortunately, you didn’t get injured while the wildfire burned your school.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to work with my family and neighbors to reduce carbon output.

 

Dear Ya’Ash,

There are many paths to Truth, but regardless of your faith or ideology, one truth is above all else: Life must continue.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will eat vegan, organic, locally grown, and seasonal.

 

To you, my dear!

In 2050, I will still be fighting against climate change. I feel that it’s not only my duty, but rather my destiny.

 

To my beloved granddaughters, Margaret and Caroline,

Growing up in Germany, I often wondered what my parents had done to oppose the Nazi regime in the 1930’s that led to WWII.  I was so disappointed when I found out how passive they had been. For me, this was formative.

 

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?

 

I promise to stop eating junk food.
