What Do We Hear When We Talk About Climate Change?

Your view of the world can grow like a set of Russian dolls

Guest perspective by LaWanna Durbin

Climate change has been called a hoax, an existential threat,

a “wicked problem.”

 

I like the term “hyperobject” (used by philosopher Timothy Morton) to denote global warming as being so massively distributed throughout space and time as to be nearly unknowable.

Past, present, and future all have

starring roles, and where exactly

can you find the colossal object

“climate change” — here, there,

everywhere? Climate change

is difficult to cognitively grasp.
