I won’t leave my lights on.
More Messages to the Future
Espero de verdade saber contribuir para legá-la inteira para você, e que todos saibamos fazer isso em conjunto também.
I will recycle stuff I found.
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.
To My Future Children,
I hope by 2050, our society has taken initiative to be producing energy solely through renewable sources.
The world is changing and it is happening fast.
What has most inspired me to act is wanting to be able to look you in the eye and say, “When I became aware of the existential threat of climate change, I did all I could.” Despite my pessimism, I act in the hope it can make a difference for future generations and all the precious life on our fragile planet.
Maya, my love, I promise to be courageous. I promise that when I face a decision, I will think of how it will impact you and your future. I promise that I’ll also step outside my individual decisions and add my weight to the forces that shift culture and systems.
I promise to reduce my waste production
I promise to pick up trash at every beach I visit 🙂 and to bike for local errands.
So today, my strong and spunky girl, I promise you this: I will stay vigilant and flexible. I will spread the word.
As I write this, I consider giving up as it sometimes seems that all is lost. But then I think of you.
To older Rochelle,
You should’ve reduced your carbon footprint, should be using some source of renewable energy and be a vegetarian by now.
