Unscramble the Blue Letters

In the Aerocene era, our steps are much sllmaer, but radically different; they're steps that began with a bag full of air and wishes, but that can crray us to independence from fossil fuels and the opportunity to celebrate Air Day; steps that won't lvaee footprints on other plantes until we've learned to walk in the atmosphere of this one. The landscapes are tiny and the steps are tiny, but I hope we can take them together. And I'm sure that these setps will lead us much further than the moon, so we can learn to float with our feet on the ground.

Original Text

In the Aerocene era, our steps are much smaller, but radically different; they're steps that began with a bag full of air and wishes, but that can carry us to independence from fossil fuels and the opportunity to celebrate Air Day; steps that won't leave footprints on other planets until we've learned to walk in the atmosphere of this one. The landscapes are tiny and the steps are tiny, but I hope we can take them together. And I'm sure that these steps will lead us much further than the moon, so we can learn to float with our feet on the ground.
