To my unborn baby,

I hope in your time the world has come together and put aside its differences to deal with climate change and take collective action. I am only twenty one now, but the leaders of our world have been so stagnant in changing their own ways to fix the climate change issues that we as humans have created. It has been twenty years of empty promises, red tape and conflict that has keep the globe temperature rising each year. I live in Massachusetts a state that prides itself as being progressive and liberal but still hasn’t passed baseline legislation to begin the 100 % renewable energy process. The politicians and citizens are two divided in their words and their own thoughts to work together and do what we need to do. I still have hope that when I graduate I can work and communicate with organizations and people all over the world to invest in renewable energies, stop over-consumption resources and take environmental responsibility. It is my dream to see countries actively combating climate change and helping one another so that the planet ends up being a sustainable environment for you and your children to live.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear sons,

I’ve been so busy since 2012 working towards getting a price on carbon.

 

Dear Alyssa,

I pray that more and more fathers will realize that to love their children well, they have to love and respect the ecological systems around them too.

 

Dear future child whatever your name is,

Climate change right now is really bad, I’m writing this during the COP26 conference in Glasgow (which is an hour away) and I’m listening to politicians talking about promises for the future. “If we fail, future generations will never forgive us.” -Boris Johnson

 

Dear Potential Future Kiddo,

To think that my choices of sustainable commuting, eating a plant based diet, and working on our City’s zero waste program likely pale in comparison to the impact of not having a baby is nothing short of devastating.  Does it make me a bad environmentalist to honor my maternal instincts?

 

Dear Tara,

I am sitting in a classroom thinking about you. Which is rare for me. I hope that our family has taken some initiative to do something about changing society instead of building robots and large houses.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to pick up trash at every beach I visit 🙂 and to bike for local errands.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to sign up for 100% renewable energy.

 

People of tomorrow,

Your path will only be as clear tomorrow as we have made it for you today.

 

Dear Students,

My act of love will be to use all the power I have, during the rest of my life, to stop climate change.

 

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.

 

The gift for next generation,

To save the big world, perhaps, we should change the mind from myself to my small family to my community.

 

My dear daughters,

I will use my voice to help bring awareness about climate change.
