Stories are powerful. They influence the future by capturing our imaginations.

Alternate Futures aims to capture the world’s collective imagination with a new story about how we ended the climate crisis. It’s the antidote to our helpless, post-apocalytic dread.
The planet is resilient, temperatures level off and begin cooling by 2050. Our grandchildren thrive. The world has food security, wealth, and health.
We work with diverse, intersectional perspectives from climate scientists, futurists, designers, smart people, creative people, academics, artists, and you to find out two things:
  1. What is the future you want
  2. What is possible
This collective vision of a possible future will become an immersive experience in museums, warehouses, and galleries.

She has been the Director for Publications for the NRDC and is the inaugural writer in residence at Columbia's Earth Institute. As one of the few Black women to become a public figure in the climate space, Mary is clear that she's more interested in being Black people's climate friend than the climate movement's Black friend. Mary also coined the term "greentrolling" and is known for cyberbullying fossil fuel companies on Twitter.
