Notes

  1. The author - while a materialist - thinks that a good reason to care about the planet and future generations is that we will - in some sense - be there to experience it.
  2. He references the work of Tom Clark and Wayne Stewart, preferring the terminology of the former.
  3. Anything further I have to say on this work will be covered by my Note on Existential Passage1.
  4. For the full text on-line, see Dmitry Epstein - What if We’re Still Here? A Selfish Reason to Care for Future Generations.
