Here’s our last question for our run of The Great Immensity at Kansas City Repertory Theatre! We have gotten to ask climate scientists a lot of different questions over the last few years. We want to know what YOU would ask a climate scientist if you got in the room with one.
And just in case your question is, Who’s a climate scientist, here’s an answer for you in the form of a hilarious music video.
When you think about the future, what is the furthest into the future that you envision? – the next 50 years? – the next 100 years? – the next forever? What does it look like? What natural resources do we still have available to us? Let us know in the comments!
Need some inspiration? Well we also asked participants in our Skype Video Interview Series this same question, so check out their answers in videos HERE! And for an interesting project specifically focused on our perception of time, check out The Long Now Foundation‘s 10,000 year clock, which is engineered to keep time for the next 10,000 years…
We asked a similar question at the start of the run of The Great Immensity about what you or your community have already done to respond to the environmental crisis. (We got some great responses – check them out HERE!) Now, we want to know what you wish would happen. What would you like to hear your local politicians address? If you got the people on your block or in your apartment building together, are there environmental issues you’d like to address? Let’s get some ideas going, and maybe we’ll find that we can start working on some of them!
Today’s is a big question – and it’s also the central question that The Great Immensity poses. We want to know about what you think it will take for society to meaningfully respond to the environmental crisis. Is it a shift in our media? – a social movement like Occupy? – a new political agenda? – all of the above? Let us know what you think and don’t worry: this is a brainstorm, not a quiz, so get creative!
