People of tomorrow,
Your path will only be as clear tomorrow as we have made it for you today.
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.
To the wonderful children of our family – Elayna, Julianna, and James –
There is no issue more important to your future and your friends’ future than stemming climate change.
I hope you are healthy and happy and that you feel supported by the ecosystem around you because we are all deeply truly interconnected. We depend on the earth to take care of us, and nature needs us to take care of her in turn. We all need each other.
Minha pequena Nicole ainda não nos conhecemos, mas já te amo
Deixo para você o meu quintal onde o ar é perfumado pelas flores e árvores, a terra dá frutos e flores além de abrigar muitos bichinhos, a água é utilizada com consciência e o ser humano é respeitado e tratado como alguém que depende da natureza para VIVER.
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.
I promise to switch from “light” to “deep” green.
I promise my next vehicle will be an EV.
Less meat, more on my feet!
We need to rethink our consumption habits in order to reduce the impacts on the environment.
To my grandchildren’s children,
I became an activist to be part of a force to save the natural world and go 100% clean energy.
