To my daughters,

Since you were born, nothing has been more important to me than making sure you grow up to be happy and healthy. There is no doubt in my mind that, over the long term, climate change is one of our planet’s existential crises.

As you grow up, I want you to be able to enjoy the natural beauty of the world as I have – splashing and playing in clean and refreshing water on hot summer days, or enjoying the fresh crisp air during a hike through the woods on a brisk autumn day with your friends or family.

Rising sea levels and changing weather patterns will undoubtedly be even more disruptive to those who are less fortunate than you. These changes will likely lead to additional conflicts and suffering, and in order for you two be happy and healthy, we all need to work hard to prevent climate change from adversely impacting the lives of our neighbors around the globe.

To that end, I promise to continue my efforts over the past ten years to bring a new clean energy technology to the marketplace that will help play some role in making our world of tomorrow a better place.

Dad

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.

 

Dearest Gray,

When I asked you why the purple Violet called to you, you told me it was “magic”. I hope that you can still find the magic of life. I hope, despite everything, it is still in abundance.

 

Dear Future Self,

I would like to make a goal to cut meat completely out of my diet in the next few months.

 

Dear friend,

I will fight for this cause and I will never ever give up because we, the youngsters, are the hope.

I promise to plant 5 trees every year just to make sure I don’t leave a carbon footprint.

Dear future,

I pray that ice caps melting and sea levels rising won’t be so much of an issue as it seems.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The road I learned to ride my bike on, the field where I kicked my first soccer ball, and the park I ate my first ice cream cone at, could all be gone.

 

To My Niece,

I am optimistic that the environment in which you grow up with will be something joyous and full of solar panels!

 

Dear Josh, LeeAnn, & Jessica,

I am very proud to know that You will treat Our Earth, Our Natural Gift, Our Playful Backyard with the same Awesome Respect that We give to each other, as a Family – Knowing that Our Earth, is Your Child Now.

 

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.
