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.

To My Dear Grandchildren,

I am incredibly happy that Nana and I can occasionally facetime, zoom, or chat with you to learn how you are doing and just catch up. The pandemic we are currently experiencing here in 2020 is something I have never experienced in my lifetime. While it can be scary and uncertain, I am confident that if we follow the recommendations of health professionals, eventually, we will find our way back to a more normal time – so that we can visit in person and share hugs again.

Even while we are physically apart, I want all of you to know that I am continuing to work to make our planet a safer and healthier place for you and your generation. As a volunteer with Citizens Climate Lobby, I raise awareness about climate issues, communicate and lobby our Members of Congress, and oppose efforts to ignore climate science. 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.

Love Always,
Papa

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Potential Future Kiddo,

To think that my choices of sustainable commuting, eating a plant based diet, and working on our City’s zero waste program likely pale in comparison to the impact of not having a baby is nothing short of devastating.  Does it make me a bad environmentalist to honor my maternal instincts?

 

Dear Elliott,

We’re moving into uncertain times, and your dad and I worry. A lot. But you’re keeping us going. You’re pushing us to make better choices and not give up.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to stop using a plastic straw.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will aim to lower my carbon footprint!

 

Dear Kaydence,

I will keep trying Kaydence, I promise. And I hope we can look back together in 2050 and smile, knowing that our Earth is healthy once again.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise when I start my baking franchise, I will reduce pollution made by it as much as physically possible.

 

Dear Ryan,

I hope that you start doing things that will help the world.

 

Dear future generations,

Past generations took all the trees, polluted all the water, fished all the fish, and hunted all the animals so that there’s almost nothing nice left.

 

Dear Llewyn, beloved grandson …

I can only say that I devoted myself to doing as much as I could to make it better, to provide for a just transition, and to fight those forces that continued to exploit the Eaarth with extractive methods, methods that always also included oppressing some people–because those doing the oppression believed that they were better and deserved more.

 

Paz e bem

Vivamos a vida com intensidade, Não nos importando a localidade.

 

I promise to plant trees and to turn off the lights.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to include the trees and animals in all my decisions.
