“One thing about the greenhouse effect that makes it so difficult for some of us to take seriously is that it’s invisible.”
Curt Stager, Our Future Earth

“We humans may think of ourselves as solid objects, all flesh and bone. But take a close look, and it’s clear our bodies are composed largely of oxygen and hydrogen. We are essentially ephemeral – akin as much to wind water, and fire as to earth.”
Curt Stager, Your Atomic Self: The Invisible Elements That Connect You to Everything Else in the Universe

“atomic motions cause the waxing and waning of rivers, so too do they produce the transient body that you—whatever “you” means—currently inhabit before its substance flows back into the great global sea of atoms. Consider, then, the particles that are departing your body at this very moment. There is no need to wait for death to scatter you to the winds, waters, and soils of the world. It is already happening.”
Curt Stager, Your Atomic Self: The Invisible Elements That Connect You to Everything Else in the Universe
