My generation can only offer its apologies - how have we stayed so ignorant for so long? Too many answers to that.
Dory, my love
It’s 2017 now and you will be almost my age now when you read this. You know my fears for the future. I hope we have managed to avert David King’s ‘catastrophic’ climate change – and all the other pitfalls we have set ourselves up for – nuclear leaks, biodiversity loss, resource depletion etc. All I can say is that I tried – I have been giving the talks for a year now. My generation can only offer its apologies – how have we stayed so ignorant for so long? Too many answers to that. I hope you too can say that you have done your best to leave this planet in a better state than you found it – I’m sure you will. I hope I am there in 2050 to read this with you but if not, always know how much you were loved.
