Dear Future Self,

How are you holding up? Is the sky still blue? Is the ocean still blue? It better be blue because I don’t want my future actions, your past actions, to have been for nothing. But let’s be realistic, as a single person, the chances of me saving the planet from immeasurable doom are very low. There’s so much that needs to be done and the majority needs to be done through the changes of major corporations. I am not the CEO of a major corporation, but maybe you are. Okay, maybe ruling over a workplace just isn’t in the stars for us, but I digress. Me not having the influence as Jeff Bezos (Do you remember him? Bald owner of Amazon, the buy something online and have it arrive in a day guy? Yes?) doesn’t mean I can’t do anything. So we’ll see, in the future, your present, have I done anything to better your future? You can say no, but I hope it’ll be a yes.

Luckily, we have figured out ways to build things without making the air dirty, and we are trying very hard to get more people to switch over to this new way as fast as we can.

 

Dear Amara and Uma,

Maybe you heard about bats? Bats, the carriers of this disease that spread among us like wild fire. I love bats. When I was your age today, sitting in the evening on the back terrace of your grandparent’s home in Ibiza, hundreds of bats would play, dance and sing among the trees.
