To my future self,

As of right now, it is the year 2020 and the climate is very irregular and inconsistent. It seems to be only going downhill from here. Global warming, forest fires and rising CO2 levels are all very present and relevant in today’s world. All climate impacts reflect on each other one way or another. By doing our part as people of the world, we can flip the long-term effects around and change the world for the better. If we do not divert course immediately, our world and environment will be much worse than it is right now. I vow to do my part and turn this around before it’s too late. I expect everyone to contribute also. Hopefully things are better in the year 2050.

Dear Finley,

I wonder if in 2050 we will be looking at a future where fear from the changes at hand has caused people to hate rather than love and provide hope. Perhaps in that world we will we no longer comprehend the biblical texts in a meaningful way. Will climate change be the end of the epoch of God?

It’s my hope that the following will be helpful as you navigate your futures.  These are the confessions of a climate activist:
