Timing and Perspective


The statement "In order to survive the climate crisis, we shall need to think VERY long term. Like 100, 500 or even 1000 years. Every decision needs to be measured against the longest perspective possible" emphasizes the importance of considering the long-term consequences of our actions when addressing the climate crisis. It suggests that short-term thinking and quick fixes are insufficient, and that we must adopt a far-reaching perspective to ensure the survival and well-being of future generations.

Here is a portfolio of websites that explore the idea of taking a long-term perspective in decision-making related to the climate crisis:
