We asked friends of DeSmogBlog to write a letter to their great, great grandchildren about their vision and hopes for their world in 100 years, in the context of global warming. Here’s what managing director Green.TV Ade Thomas said:
Dear Great, Great Grandchild,
First of all, I hope your world is a happy place for you to be able to read this letter in peace. I hope that youre world is still relatively green and that the air that you breathe is clean and the ground that you walk on is rich in wildlife. I hope that there is still ice and snow and cold winters for your nose to go red, and that you can look forward to ice skating on frozen rivers and skiing in the mountains.
I hope you’re able to use some fantastic technologies which don’t damage the planet and which enable you to make friends around the world and to keep in touch with my other great, great grandchildren.
I hope you can look back on my work and think that I did some good. I hope you can look forward to doing something great yourself – something small that is great or something big that is great: it doesn’t matter which.
