Why are we fighting climate change?

This is a slightly deeper question and we’ll tackle it in more than just this blogpost. But, if you observe the environmental movement, it it pretty clear that we’re fighting climate change to preserve the status quo. This is despite so many of us being so tired of the status quo and all the injustices, ugliness and boredom it produces. And the reason we want to preserve the status quo is because there are so few stories about different and better futures.

In a long interview with The Economist, Adam Curtis explores this problem. We’ve screen grabbed an excerpt about climate change:


We are currently writing a long piece on ‘successor civilisations’ that responds to this and hopefully tackles the way we relate to climate change.

Until then, we recommend reading Rupert Read, Jem Bendell and watching Adam Curtis’ film Hypernormalisation.
