To My Future Children,

Today, I am a 21-year-old student at San Jose State University studying meteorology. Learning so much about climate change on a day-to-day basis, I am really worried about the future of our beautiful planet. I hope with all of my heart that this issue will somehow get resolved by the time that you are here enjoying all that life has to offer. As of now, the future of our planet depends on what we as people can do to stop climate change from happening. I will do as much as I can to make sure that you have an amazing life. People need to be educated about climate change and realize that if we do not change our way of living soon, the future of our planet will be in jeopardy. I know that climate change is real and it is happening everyday right before our eyes. You deserve to have a safe and healthy place to raise your own family. Today is a very beautiful day in San Jose with sunny skies and temperatures in the mid-70s. I hope that as you are reading this, it is also a beautiful day no matter where in the world you are. I am very optimistic about the future of our planet, but I want you to know that I will work hard to make your life as beautiful as it can be. I will get my degree in meteorology, I will get an amazing job, and I will reduce my ecological footprint. I want you to know that I am doing all of those things not just for myself, but for you also. Even though I am not quite ready to have you yet, I love you with all of my heart. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to watch you grow as your mother.

Love,

Madison

Dear Little Loves,

Protecting our planet is so similar to parenting; it requires interest, dedication, thoughtfulness, knowledge, attention, and love.

 

Hey Kiddos!

My hope for you is that all our legislative efforts and care for the environment makes a difference so that we can wipe asthma out of our family.

 

To my darling ones,

And it’s not that I don’t care. I care deeply. For you three, and the families I hope you will have one day; for the many beautiful places I have had the privilege to know, places which take my breath away, that fill my heart with a bursting joy and connectedness to something so much greater than I, places I know may be quite different when you are my age

 

Dear Levon,

I hope, as your father, I’ve done enough to instill within you how science is a wonderful adventure.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I am so sorry we didn’t realize this predicament sooner.

 

To my children,

I am working with 350.org on shutting down the coal and unconventional gas industries in our country because I cannot think of a more direct way to protect you, the food, water and biodiversity we all love and rely on.

 

Dear Makena,

Sweetie, you deserve clean air, water and soil. You deserve to thrive in an environment that supports you.

 

Dear Evan,

We want your future family to enjoy the same beautiful places we enjoyed.

 

Dear Eleanor,

You are so small. So innocent. So beautiful. For you and for everyone else, I will try harder.

 

Dear Logan,

I am working every second of my life, with every ounce of my being, to ensure that I am leaving you and your brother a planet that is safe and secure.

 

Dear future loved ones,

As I sit here and write to you, I’d like to share with you something more horrifying than a few boos – our current home, Earth.

 

Dear Eleanor,
