to my grandchildren,

The most important are 100% by 2050 renewable energy because the pollution created from the burning of fossil fuels kills millions of people every year. It could be that before 2030 80% were renewable and clean energy at 2050 100%.

If the world moves to 100% of wind, water and solar energy, it would be:

Eliminate 4.6 million premature deaths caused by air pollution per year around the world.

Save 22.8 trillion dollars in annual health costs by 2050 worldwide.

Avoid more than 60,000 premature deaths a year only in the United States.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow

I promise to encourage myself and others to recycle more.

 

Dear Daughter,

Even when contemplating huge global-historical issues — especially then — it’s important to stay grounded in the present time and place, the specific here and now, and the minute affairs of everyday interpersonal relations.

 

Dear Emilia and Tommy,

We, in our time, still have the chance to change course. We have the knowledge and emergent means, even the profitable technologies, to do so.

 

Dear Nieces and Nephews,

I tried.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Awareness is key. Learning about this issue can seem like a small effort compared to other actions, but it’s the most important.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to never use a plastic straw.

 

Dear Future Explorers,

I am often faced with the question: why do I care so much about this pale blue dot that we inhabit?

 

To the generation after mine,

But when you encounter that resistance–and you will, regularly–know that you must respond just how we have had to these past 50 years. With love, and sternness, and most of all, courage. Because that is what the resistance fears the most. We who came before you promise that we will do the same while we wait for you. Know that you will never be alone.

 

To My Future Nephews,

I want you to see those corn fields in the north, the beautiful beaches down in Florida, and the stars in the woods at night.

 

Dear Nephew,

I believe i have truly played my part in raising awareness and practical solutions to climate change.

 

Meus filhos,

Devemos conservar nosso planeta. Mas, para se fazer isso, temos que fazer isso juntos. Todos os seres humanos devem estar voltados para cuidar bem do lar em que vivemos e do presente que Deus nos deu para viver: a Terra.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to turn old shirts into produce bags.
