100 Words -- The Precision Of Nature

I've just finished “Death’s End,“ the final volume of Cixin Liu's epic sci-fi trilogy. I’m not sure what the author intended, but when viewed as an allegory for climate change it sends a clear message. The future will come, whether it’s 1,000 years from now or 1,000,000 years. That future is beyond our imagination but will be shaped by choices we make. The universe awaits us, but for now we have one job: take care of our home planet. As we fret about climate tipping points, we should ponder this admonition: "The precision of Nature can sometimes exceed the imagination."
