Please forward to Kelcy Warren. Thanks!
Dear Kelcy Warren,
I hope you enjoyed a wonderful Christmas with your family celebrating the birth of the little boy who saved the world. I hope the ghost of DAPL's future didn't haunt your holiday as it did mine. What are we going to do? What sort of future are we building for our grandchildren's grandchildren?
I suppose you're too deeply sunk in this project to abandon it now.
Then again, you might be uniquely positioned to show all the CEOs of the world what needs to be done to save this beautiful blue planet we call home. Someone has to be the first to abandon fossil fuels before we all make fossils of ourselves. Someone has to be the first to light the way to the post-petroleum future, that future where our carbon debts are forgiven, where we replant the forests, where we treat the earth tenderly, where the seas begin to heal, where there is enough clean water left for our grandchildren's grandchildren to thrive. Sometimes, one boy can lead the world to salvation. Will you be the one?
Well, I guess that's just my pipe dream. Yes, I realize that's far too much to ask of anyone, and yet... you're a big-hearted Texas boy, and it's Christmas. I can't stop myself from hoping.
Best wishes to you and yours in the New Year,
