More Messages to the Future
BATMAN SAYS, “LISTEN!”
How can I help you save the world and our country?
Creo que debo hacer más. Por ello, he decidido escribir esta breve carta para empezar un proceso en el que vaya escribiendo más cartas, conforme vaya teniendo más claridad de mis posibles contribuciones.
Dear Future Self,
More than getting through a global pandemic that has already taken hundreds of thousands of lives around the world, our true feat is even larger: to secure our long-term health and the health of the ecosystems upon which we depend for life. To do that, we have to cut our emissions in half in the next ten years, and continue to reduce it beyond that. And to succeed in that, we need to fundamentally shift the way we do EVERYTHING.
I promise to recycle and compost.
I won’t leave my lights on.
To my dearest Gabriel,
What gives me hope is what is yet to come, what you will experience in your lifetime.
Dear fellow human,
May my tomorrow include more attention to these details so that you know that I do care.
I will keep the air clean so everyone can see the sunset.
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.
Our Shared Promise
I will act today so you may have a healthy earth to live on.
To earth & its inhabitants,
Its been heavy on my shoulders since I found out about the state of climate woes as a child.
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.
