Stanley Wu’s monthly Long View Digest curates the best work we find from around the world on the interconnected and interacting stressors of the global polycrisis.

This month, Stan reviews articles on the death of empire, collapsology, climate-driven mass migration, how AI invented 40,000 lethal molecules in six hours, Sri Lanka’s collapse, Australia’s decline, the Rhine drying up, and the poetic art of living in a time between worlds. He’s also found a beautiful new book that brings together Indigenous voices writing about climate change.
