VERY BIG AND VERY SMALL

I just read that climate change adversaries think the blizzards in NY make mockery of the whole "global warming" phenomenon...ahem...and it struck me that climate change is yet another incredibly large concept that will, in all likelihood, radically alter the course of human history. And yet again, we are almost incapable of understanding it in relation to our lifespans. Then I wondered what a civilization of immortals would do in the same situation...and now I wonder whether we will go on obliviously re-engineering ourselves, or re-engineer ourselves to conceive of next-to-oblivion.
