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

Dear Future Self,

More than getting through a global pandemic that has already taken hundreds of thousands of lives around the world, our true feat is even larger: to secure our long-term health and the health of the ecosystems upon which we depend for life. To do that, we have to cut our emissions in half in the next ten years, and continue to reduce it beyond that. And to succeed in that, we need to fundamentally shift the way we do EVERYTHING.
