Hyperobjects

A view upon life:

“Hyperobjects stretch our ideas of time and space, since they far outlast most human time scales, or they’re massively distributed in terrestrial space and so are unavailable to immediate experience.

Let’s consider the fact that hyperobjects disturb our habitual ideas of time and space by stretching them and by distributing effects across them. The trouble with global warming is not just that it’s real—the trouble with it is that it deals a deathblow to “common sense.”

Repeat after me: climate is not weather.

You can’t see climate, but it’s more real than wet stuff under your boots.” T.Morton
