To Whom it May Concern,

It is 2017 and we have a climate change denier as president. Our government actively removed information regarding the changing climate and how seriously it affects all of us on earth, our water, our food, our natural resources are all at greater risk than ever before. As our population grows we must make more from our ever depleting resources. I am sad to say I cannot guarantee the world will look the same for you as it did for me, what treasures will be lost between now and then I cannot say for certain. I hope by the time this reaches you climate change and it’s solutions will become a mainstream topic. If not for the sake of maintaining this earth than for the immediate danger it poses. I hope climate change has not been pushed under the rug. I promise you between now and then I will be critical of myself and my actions, critical of the behaviors and practices of the companies I choose to support and critical of my government, demanding through personal and community political action that they hold us accountable as a nation of people and corporations. I will take what I have learned so far and apply it to my life and the choices I make and seek out new knowledge and solutions and do what I can to share this knowledge with others. While my change may only be individual I know small changes can make a difference and my dollars carry weight. I will, along with many others continue to be thoughtful and critical regarding our world and always act with the future in mind. We make up a growing body of concerned citizens looking for avenues to voice our concerns, develop sustainable practices and spend our dollars responsibly. I hope this action combined with the many other efforts underway and even the efforts that have not been imagined yet help retain some of the beauty I have enjoyed for you to see for yourself.

Dear sons,

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

 

To my precious children

I want clean air, clean energy and muddy feet for you. I want this for all children.

 

Dear future me,

If we don’t stop cutting down trees for agriculture and to build houses then the future generations will not think about trees when they hear the word Earth.

 

Aos meus sobrinhos queridos, Ana Laura, Luis Carlos e Helloísa,

Dear Future Me: Only open after March 4th, 2050

I don’t regret my past ventures, nor do I believe I will regret my future ventures, but I’ve learned that I’ve needed to manifest these experiences into actions of sustainable development and conservation and protection of our environment.

 

Dear future generations,

It’s never too late to make a difference. Our actions have very real consequences. We can educate ourselves, learn from our mistakes, and take action. We can hold companies like big oil and big plastic accountable for their negative impacts on the environment. We can educate ourselves and others about what causes climate change and what actions we as individuals can take to lower our carbon footprints.

 

To our sweet grandson Caleb,

We want a safe and beautiful world for you, little Caleb, and for your children and grandchildren. We promise to do our part.

 

To my Dad,

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,

We only have 11 years left until the damage done by climate change is irreversible.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to go to the farmer’s market more

But being truthful, I know we are not yet on the path that will lead to the change that is needed; but it is visible.
