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 ride a bike and take a smart train.

 

Dear Kids,

I know it’s long past time to wake up. You deserve a future in which drought, famine, and war are not all your children ever know; the choices my generation makes now will determine your future.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

And, if this summer has taught me anything, I am content (because I have to be) living in this limbo, this seemingly endless waiting for the opportunity to change, when really the opportunity exists within our very selves all along.

 

Dear Future

My hope is for all who live in your time to still know the joy of swimming in the ocean, walking through the woods, and hiking in the mountains.

 

Happy 34th birthday my son.

To laugh at our efforts as they were on such a small scale, too small some would say to make a difference, and then smile when we think about the number families just like ours that did the same thing.

 

Dear Gabriel,

When the worst consequences of climate change still feel far away today, or the barriers to acting on climate change seem steep today, I do not think about today. I think about you, and your world when you are my age.

 

Dear Kiya,

Fighting for a system that rewards care for people and planet over profit.

 

To my dearest Gabriel,

What gives me hope is what is yet to come, what you will experience in your lifetime.

 

My dearest Paloma Bear,

I want the very best for you and for generations to come. There is only one planet earth. Your mommy and I will make a genuine effort to make an impact to protect it for you.

 

Son,

Make the most of every day because remember yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift.

 

Dear Alba:

There is still a lot of beauty and I will do what I can to keep it from slipping away.

 

Dear Alanna and Valeria,

I promise you to keep trying, to keep educating, to keep pushing our elected officials to act and protect your health now and in the future.
