Hola! Pueden ustedes ayudarme con esto:

'perhaps if we cannot take care of our planet, we do not deserve it'

Mi intento:

'quizás si no pudiéramos cuidar a nuestro planeta, no la merecemos'


Gracias!

    Hi teacupfortwo.

    In case you don't understand the logic behind -SaLeM-'s answer, perhaps I may explain.

    The main clause is perhaps we do not deserve it which is why 'deserve' is in the subjunctive mood - after quizás.

    If we cannot take care of our planet - 'if' clauses in the present tense use the indicative mood in Spanish.

    Saludos
