To my Dad,
I hope on this Father’s Day, my 24th birthday, and the rest of days, we remember that the most basic part of life is living happy with the ones we love. Acting every day against climate change will allow us to keep that simple piece of humanity.
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.
Love, help and build a future in unison that benefits and protects the whole world.
Dear Future Grandchildren,
I hope I can look you in the eye and tell you I honestly did everything I could to protect our planet.
I promise I will take short showers, eat less meat, and buy local more often.
We will look back on our time here and ask, “What did I do?”
If we truly live our present moment, maybe you’ll have a future.
Dear Rowan and Anaka,
If we could talk, I would not be able to bear your gaze as you ask: How could you, the people in a position to change the course of climate change, fail to act?
I promise to drive less and walk more.
I’ve been so busy since 2012 working towards getting a price on carbon.
Dear Elliot and Alana,
But being truthful, I know we are not yet on the path that will lead to the change that is needed; but it is visible.
I promise to plant trees and to turn off the lights.
