Dear Mother Earth
A seven year old drew this.
I want this story to be told a million times over.
I want this child’s message of despair, of disappointment, and depiction of the collective failure to mitigate climate and ecological catastrophe to be front page news.
I don’t want to know who is buying Twitter.
I don’t want to know which rich celebrity slapped who.
I want to know that we’re not doing enough.
I want to know that scientists around the world are protesting about how close we are to climate tipping points.
I want to know that we’re just years away from passing the 1.5 degrees Celsius of global warming.
I want to know that ecosystems are collapsing and biodiversity is plummeting.
We have the understanding. We have the solutions I want to know what we are going to do about it.
If enough of us start telling this story, it will be front page news.
Will you help this story be told?
