We are everywhere at once

We are everywhere at once

 "The problem is not just that we are moving too quickly. It is that the terrain on which climate changes are taking place is intensely local: an early blooming of a particular flower, an unusually thin layer of ice on a lake, sap failing to flow in a maple tree, the late arrival of a migratory bird. Noticing those kinds of subtle changes requires an intimate connection to a specific ecosystem. That kind of communion happens only when we know a place deeply, not just as scenery but also as sustenance, and when local knowledge is passed on with a sense of sacred duty from one generation to the next."
