To whoever survives to read this,

I’m sorry we failed you, that we started too late to make meaningful change, that we weren’t angry enough to take ourselves out of our insular cocoons and realize we were killing your future.

I’m sorry we let so many species die so we could make our lives easier by driving everywhere, even if walking was an option.

I’m sorry. Don’t forgive us, we knew what we were doing. Just not enough of us cared enough to change our lives substantially, to take this threat seriously, to try and preserve the one world we had.

I hope on this Father’s Day, my 24th birthday, and the rest of days, we remember that the most basic part of life is living happy with the ones we love. Acting every day against climate change will allow us to keep that simple piece of humanity.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

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 Evie of 2050,

I can feel the change happening — many people are working to transform the world.

Unfortunately, our selfishness and excessive greed have closed our eyes to the well-being of the planet, and it has suffered the consequences.
