More Messages to the Future
I promise to only use metal straws and reusable cups.
I promise to ride a bike and take a smart train.
Dear Emilia and Tommy,
We, in our time, still have the chance to change course. We have the knowledge and emergent means, even the profitable technologies, to do so.
Today, I promise to keep my spaces clean and my environment cleaner.
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.
To My Friends, Family and Future Grandchildren,
I realize my reflection of the past, current and future state of the environment paints a grim and pessimistic picture, but I feel optimistic in our ability to turn planet Earth’s fate around if we all work together and commit to making a change.
To My Dear Children, Jackson Carlo and Stella Jane,
I am a better person because of you, and I want the world to be a better place for you.
Dear Future Explorers,
I am often faced with the question: why do I care so much about this pale blue dot that we inhabit?
Let us teach our children to volunteer and donate.
I can now see that the solutions are there, that a transition of the magnitude that is needed, is possible.
To My Future Children,
Most importantly, I hope you live in a world where science is taken seriously and fact is clearly distinguished from fiction.
Dear Before The Flood team,
We can all be aware and sensitized to the problem, so that we are ready to embrace the solutions that will come our way. In doing so, we can all be part of the solution.
