To the future Lilly,

I hope that people finally started understanding how serious the climate crisis is.  I am writing this message in the year 2019 and currently, we only have a few short years before we go into a complete crisis. That is, assuming you don’t consider our current situation already a crisis.  The human race is not only killing itself but other species and the actual earth itself. For many people, the worst thing they can imagine right now is not having the convenience of using a straw or driving five miles to work, and the thought of biking seems ridiculous. I am a problem myself, I enjoy my long hot showers, and sometimes still use single-use plastics. But I am trying, and not everyone can say the same about themselves.

I believe that once we stop being ridiculously greedy about what things we want and how much money we have, and realize that the only reason it matters so fucking much is that we have decided that it matters so fucking much.

I hope that things are on the way to be improved by the time youre reading this, and not on the way to being worse.  I also hope that you got to sail for a long time and continued to really like rock climbing. Do not get stuck in the endless cycle of work. Please go out and explore if possible.

Dear Tomorrow,

I haven’t met you yet, but I already know you deserve a better tomorrow.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise when I start my baking franchise, I will reduce pollution made by it as much as physically possible.

 

For a child I am yet to know,

We are fighting for a shared cause, inspired by our strong and unwavering dedication to preserve the beauty and wonder of our natural world for our children, our grandchildren and their children, and for countless generations to come.

 

Dear tomorrow,

If there’s one thing young people have learned while quarantining, it’s that Gen Z holds so much power and is capable of a lot more than we think. We’ve created a community that has united us all and started to bring about change for the good of our futures. Now, with the help of Gen Z (and of course, people of all ages), we have the power to save our home, the Earth.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The road I learned to ride my bike on, the field where I kicked my first soccer ball, and the park I ate my first ice cream cone at, could all be gone.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I will teach my children about a greener earth.

 

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 Grandchildren,

I hope we can pass on a better place to live so that my grandchildren and their future children can enjoy the beauty of nature that our wonderful God has given us.

 

My Dear Paloma,

I’m going to commit to raising you with your eyes open. Being aware as much as we can, how to better our environment together.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to switch from “light” to “deep” green.

 

Dear Ellie,

My heart is an ocean of love for all the children facing a life of climate catastrophe.

 

Dear Future Explorers,

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