To future generations,

I am so sorry that there were so many people in the world that didn’t believe that climate change was real. Unfortunately, you inherited a world very different from the one I was born in. There were plenty of scientists that warned us about what was coming, and many grassroots movements that tried to make changes to stop the world from going past the tipping point. Based on news stories I read today, it appears we have reached that point, and not enough governments and/or people willing to make changes that would back away from the tipping point.

I just want to say that I’m so sorry

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to ditch all the natural gas and go all electric with my home!

 

To my daughters,

In order for you two be happy and healthy, we all need to work hard to prevent climate change.

 

Dear Seamus and Tuva,

So it’s 2050. If the good people are winning the greater struggle, fossil fuels are a shamefully long chapter of the past, and there has been a full scale awakening to the need for only renewable, clean energy.

 

Dear Gabriel,

When the worst consequences of climate change still feel far away today, or the barriers to acting on climate change seem steep today, I do not think about today. I think about you, and your world when you are my age.

 

Dear Matthew, Sam, and Sophie,

There is a promise in the Bible: ‘I shall restore the years that the locusts have eaten’ and that points to a promise of complete healing and restoration. But until that comes I intend to do my best to ‘save the planet’ in whatever way I can, and I encourage you to do the same.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I promise to reduce my waste production

 

Dear Thomas,

When you look at me with those big beautiful eyes and that innocent smile, you make me want to fight harder. And I do.

 

Dear Future Self,

It was 2020, the year I realized that life is fragile—not just mine, but the entire planet—through immense consumption, pollution, greediness, ignorance, false bliss. This wasn’t the way I wanted to live my life, so I promise to actively make the change.

 

Querido amanhã,

Em fim, espero que você receba essa mensagem, e entenda o quão pequenos nos somos e como é importante preservar o planeta terra.

 

Our Shared Promise

I will act today so you may have a healthy earth to live on.

 

I will recycle stuff I found.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will stop using plastic and will plant trees. I will also not waste water and electricity.
