As the U.S. and other countries begin to open their economies, the exhausted fears and upheaval faced by civilization must not cover up the threats we were facing before the pandemic began.
Considering there could be more than one existential crisis is impossible for most of us to imagine. As modern humans, we are not used to facing such colossal threats to the comfortable lives we live.
It is my hope that our reliance on science to get us through the pandemic will cascade into an all-out siege on the climate crisis. We will learn in years to come that this pandemic was just a taste of the turmoil we must endure as we trudge toward the revival of true humanity.
