“When I have time to think about whatever I want—which happens a lot on this trek—I often think about writing, or playing a part in the writing of a play.

“The play is about a trial: the first trial to be held in the Intergenerational Supreme Court of Justice. I have imagined several scenarios for the prosecution and the defense, even so far as what might be the closing arguments for both.

“The dialogue is constantly changing, yet one sentence seems to remain constant. It is the first question that the attorney representing our children and future humans asks of every witness for the defense. ‘When did you first learn that current human activity was unsustainable?’

“I’m thinking Harrison Ford might be perfect to play the prosecutor: he gets it.”
