More Messages to the Future
Isabelle minha querida neta!

I promise to take shorter showers.
So today, my strong and spunky girl, I promise you this: I will stay vigilant and flexible. I will spread the word.
Dear future love,
A culture of consumption is the reason that my world faces such an ecological crisis, it is both necessary and proper to address the fundamental mindsets that have created such a destructive culture.

I hope that the state of the environment becomes a part of everyday discourse.
It seems silly to saddle yourself with guilt for something that hasn’t happened yet. I don’t want to do that. As of today, I don’t really feel guilty.

Com essas ideias simples e força de vontade, podemos tornar um mundo, um lugar melhor para se viver, com menos mortes, menos lixo, transforma-lo em um mundo diferente.
The world is changing and it is happening fast.
Dear Kai and Leah,
I want you to feel awestruck like I do. It is important to feel small sometimes, to feel the weight of reality, to recognize the scale of a challenge, to see where you fit and what you are up against. This is the case with climate change.

I’ll buy only food that I plan to eat before it spoils.
