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 never use a plastic straw.

 

Dearest Finlay,

I hope you are healthy and happy and that you feel supported by the ecosystem around you because we are all deeply truly interconnected. We depend on the earth to take care of us, and nature needs us to take care of her in turn. We all need each other.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise my next vehicle will be an EV.

 

Dear Kai and Leah,

I want you to feel awestruck like I do. It is important to feel small sometimes, to feel the weight of reality, to recognize the scale of a challenge, to see where you fit and what you are up against. This is the case with climate change.

 

To my daughter and son,

Surrounded by scientists who shared my fears and visions, I often had a hard time to accept that outside our small community climate change received marginal attention.

 

My grandchildren,

I promise to do my very best to educate your parents as best I can.

 

Dear James,

More importantly, what are we doing to better our planet and everyone who lives in it?

 

To the Future Generations,

I look at my baby niece today. The newest member of our family, just 3 days old. What will be left for her and her grandchildren?

 

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.

 

To my fellow adventurers,

Don’t stop looking for adventures.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to stop eating beef.

 

To My Future Self,

This lead me to my final project, which focused on reforming the education system to incorporate sustainability classes into the current curriculum.
