To my friends’ children,

We can farm food now!
Leads to population growth.
Still manageable

Industrialize!
The message that kicks it off
Still under control

Revolutionize!
The great Acceleration
Anthropocene starts

Rising CO2
Extinction of great species
At the threshold now

Scarcity and death?
Or great collaboration?
We have the power

Power to stand up
We must exercise this right
To save our children

Trees regrow their leaves
Flowers come back at springtime
Bears leave their darkness

Humans must survive
We must listen to Nature
Save our true teachers

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Lincoln,

I wanted to let you know that in 2019 that there were real struggles with the health of our planet.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

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

 

My Dear Paloma,

I’m going to commit to raising you with your eyes open. Being aware as much as we can, how to better our environment together.

 

Dear Beloved Children,

As time progresses, there is hope that value will be placed on all living organisms, including humans, plants, and animals. Life will move at a slower pace, and being on your own time and moving at your individual pace will be the typical way of life. I consider this way of life good living, and I hope that future generations will live on this earth as it was once intended to live in peace and harmony.

 

Dear Nuriel, Eliran, and Rotem,

Sometimes I think we will never make it, but I know we must keep trying.

 

My dear daughters,

I will use my voice to help bring awareness about climate change.

 

Dear Future Today,

Here in California we’re starting to recognize our climate changing the natural world around us.

 

Dear June and Colin,

I’m sad and angry that collectively more has not been done to this date. And that still with such dire warnings, obvious impacts, those in power are acting far too slowly.

 

Dear Students,

I imagine at this point we have dropped our addiction to coal, gas, and oil and that our environment has made a turn for the better with the solar, wind, and other unimagined (at this point) alternative energy choices are in place.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will take short showers, eat less meat, and buy local more often.

 

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.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to live a car-free lifestyle.
