No need to kill yourself over what next season might bring. Professor X from NewBumbleFin University warns against a major threat: climate change. Don't laugh, you might need to shed some skin, not pounds.

I am a Professor of Environmental Sciences at NewBumbleFin University. I would like to approach you with a new project concerning the future of fashion and our future dress codes. It isn't in my place to question the validity of fashion as a way to express oneself through pre-established and acquired codes of communication; however, I have to intervene as a Scientist.
It is of outmost importance to start thinking about the sudden rise of temperatures, until you know it we will be burning of heat in mid-December. This said: it would be interesting to develop a project together concerning the human body and its new habitat. Will we need so many clothes? What will be functional? What could come closer to nakedness, or could we even imagine a cooling effect through the such a simple behavior as getting dressed?
I would be happy to oblige in such a role and participate in such an evolutionary project. Think of all the effects it could have on human psychology. All men left without clothes, merely uniforms to cover their sexes.

Dear Professor, Egregio Professore,
we are delighted that a person of your calibre took the time to write to us. We don't mean any offense but the project sounds a bit like a mad scientist's fantasy, although it's also a bit Sci-FI. We are not sure how we could help in the development, we don't design clothes, we write about them. However, we would be very pleased to follow your enterprise as it comes to life.
One doubt: do you think human beings will ever accept to live without embellishing themselves? We are not sure but we are open to debate.
