2019-05-04 How to live with climate change?

@wion recently posted a link to an interview with Paul Kingsnorth (YouTube, about 45min), author of The Wake which I wrote about in 2017. The interview is about making peace with the inevitable collapse, finding peace in doing what is right, finding hope in that the future is unknowable, finding a spiritual connection with nature as individuals, as a society.

Kingsnorth is also a cofounder of the Dark Mountain Project:

Together, we are walking away from the stories that our societies like to tell themselves, the stories that prevent us seeing clearly the extent of the ecological, social and cultural unravelling that is now underway. We are making art that doesn’t take the centrality of humans for granted. We are tracing the deep cultural roots of the mess the world is in. And we are looking for other stories, ones that can help us make sense of a time of disruption and uncertainty.
