We need a poly-temporal worldview to embrace the overlapping rates of
change that our world runs on, especially the huge, powerful changes that
are mostly invisible to us.

Geologist Marcia Bjornerud teaches that kind of time literacy. With it, we
become at home in the deep past and engaged with the deep future. We learn
to “think like a planet.”

A professor of geology and environmental studies at Lawrence University in
Wisconsin, Marcia Bjornerud is author of *Timefulness: How Thinking Like a
Geologist Can Help Save the World*
(02018) and *Reading the Rocks: The Autobiography of the Earth*
