Uncivilization

In case you haven’t noticed, I am a bit obsessed with the issue of climate change, particularly with the question–as climate instability continues to worsen, everything that has gotten us here continues unabated, and the powers that be continue to frack, burn, trash and destroy what’s left of the viable ecosystem–of what is worth doing now. What is a viable action worth taking? I liked this article because I think it looks squarely in the face one of the truths of this time–it’s not going to be possible for us to stop climate change, and maybe not even going to be possible for us to halt the maniacal destruction of the planet which is certainly threatening life for human and other beings.

What I like about this article is that it doesn’t fight for human life at all costs — and it has given rise to the question in me: what’s worth fighting for, civilization or the web of life? The answer is clear to me, even if it means my own death–it’s the web of life that matters, not civilization
