"As a species, our brains have just not evolved to deal with threats whose effects will be felt in what, for us, counts as the remote future. We respond to them by ignoring them." Daniel Kahneman, Professor Emeritus of Psychology and Public Affairs at Princeton University, Nobel Laureate in Economics
