Dear Clarisse,

Hi me of tomorrow! How’s the weather up there? I’m guessing a little hot from all the climate change happening huh? Any flying cars, flying hoverboards, and new and smart robots yet? Anything new happen? Well, to tell you now since you probably won’t remember this, but I’m currently writing this on a warm 60 degree day with a odd tornado siren going off on the wrong day.

The average rate of temperature increase has been 0.15°-0.20° C per decade since 1975. And because of all this temperature increase, the predicted temperature in 2050 is going to most likely be 4° C (7.2° F) in the atmosphere by the end of the 21st century. I got my data from, (Here).

These hopes that I’m going to share now are really going to put me in doubt that they’re going to happen from all the climate change and stuff, but anyway, one, I hope that the glaciers and the North and South poles can come back to their normal state of being really cold so all the animals living there won’t go extinct. Two, I hope bees don’t die out because we REALLY need them, for flowers and stuff! Three, we won’t need to use greenhouse gases anymore because they keep harming our Earth by climate change, and instead, use solar power and wind power! And second to last, I hope there’s more recyclable food-items and less trash-food items so we can recycle and reuse more! Lastly, I hope we lower the usage of cars and factories because I don’t want more carbon dioxide, methane, etc. Hopefully this all does happen, and climate change can stop.

Sincerely,

Clarisse Gilbonio

To the People in my Future Life,

Anytime I’m at the crossroads of life, I pray that I, or anyone else in the same position, will keep you in mind, and try to shape a world that’s the best possible for you.

 

Dear Future Self,

It was 2020, the year I realized that life is fragile—not just mine, but the entire planet—through immense consumption, pollution, greediness, ignorance, false bliss. This wasn’t the way I wanted to live my life, so I promise to actively make the change.

 

Dear Daughter,

Even when contemplating huge global-historical issues — especially then — it’s important to stay grounded in the present time and place, the specific here and now, and the minute affairs of everyday interpersonal relations.

 

Queridas filhas Ana Luísa e Ana Carla,

Que vocês possam contar para seus filhos e netos que minha geração tomou consciência de sua responsabilidade e assumiu sua condição de natureza e a ela se reintegrou, com inteligência, interação respeitosa e solidariedade.

 

Dear Kai and Leah,

I want you to feel awestruck like I do. It is important to feel small sometimes, to feel the weight of reality, to recognize the scale of a challenge, to see where you fit and what you are up against. This is the case with climate change.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to use my reusable water bottle more often
