I’ll be retired or dead by 2038. Why should I care about Y2038?

Crazy as it sounds, this question comes up a lot when discussing Y2038. There are many reasons to care about addressing Y2038. For one, your children and grandchildren will hopefully be very much alive in 2038. Also, not addressing Y2038 could literally cause catastrophes. Consider how shortsighted our generation (and our parents and grandparents for that matter) will seem to our children when they are faced with the staggering burden of addressing Y2038 (and potentially recovering from avoidable catastrophes if the issues are left unaddressed).
