I am scared of the things happening right now with our planet.
Aos meus sobrinhos queridos, Ana Laura, Luis Carlos e Helloísa,

Dear ACS, LG, CM, MCD, AH, MS, AS, GL, and ERD,
I commit to demanding that politicians that want my vote, my time, my substantial help and expertise are people who seek to address climate change seriously and talk about it boldly.

To my dear children in the year 2050,
I don’t wish to go backwards, but I do wish we would slow down and design our brave new world with more care.
Dear Future Explorers,
I am often faced with the question: why do I care so much about this pale blue dot that we inhabit?
To my grandchildren,
Ahora vivo en la ciudad de México y cuando debe de llover no llueve… cuando hace calor de verdad hace calor.
