Dear Planet Earth Citizen,
Yiv Gaundumbaff, March 6, 2017
I wonder if in 2050 we will be looking at a future where fear from the changes at hand has caused people to hate rather than love and provide hope. Perhaps in that world we will we no longer comprehend the biblical texts in a meaningful way. Will climate change be the end of the epoch of God?
I pledge to take the bus.
As one push of a button can set a spinner in motion, so too can the actions of one in creating a world that allows you to thrive, to giggle, to love.
More importantly, what are we doing to better our planet and everyone who lives in it?
Tonight at bedtime, you asked, seemingly out of nowhere, “why are the glaciers disappearing?”
Dear Annalyse and Greyson,
See people can say they care about climate change, but caring is not action.
To my dear son Zac,
I promise to raise you as a loving-nature human.
Queridas filhas Ana Luísa e Ana Carla,
Que vocês possam contar para seus filhos e netos que minha geração tomou consciência de sua responsabilidade e assumiu sua condição de natureza e a ela se reintegrou, com inteligência, interação respeitosa e solidariedade.
I imagine at this point we have dropped our addiction to coal, gas, and oil and that our environment has made a turn for the better with the solar, wind, and other unimagined (at this point) alternative energy choices are in place.
Isabelle minha querida neta!
Nossa vida só tem qualidade se tem natureza ao nosso redor.
Dear future generations,
It’s never too late to make a difference. Our actions have very real consequences. We can educate ourselves, learn from our mistakes, and take action. We can hold companies like big oil and big plastic accountable for their negative impacts on the environment. We can educate ourselves and others about what causes climate change and what actions we as individuals can take to lower our carbon footprints.
