“As you now know all too well, the climate change enemy won, and though we are gone, you are living in the ruin that we created.”
We are sorry, so very sorry. You are living in a wrecked world, those of you who have not already perished, but you did not wreck it. We did, we of the early 21st century.
The great nations of our day knew that climate change was their greatest enemy and that no military could defeat it. They knew that no invading enemy could do them the terrible harm that climate change had already begun to do. But despite this knowledge, our leaders continued to squander their wealth on massive military establishments rather than on what they well knew could have been done to defeat the climate change enemy.
As you now know all too well, the climate change enemy won, and though we are gone, you are living in the ruin that we created. India against Pakistan, America against Russia, China against Japan, Arabia against Iran—how silly, how almost trivial these conflicts must seem to you in retrospect. Alas, we chose to arm against one another rather than uniting against the enemy that has now defeated us all.
We are sorry, so very sorry.
