    Face Climate Change To Find Opportunity

    It’s too late to halt climate change and our society is doomed — but wait, that’s the good news; "Gasland" director Josh Fox is back with "How to Let Go of the World," a sprawling chronicle of despair -- and hope

    Andrew O’Hehir, April 19, 2016 (Salon)

    “…[In the decade since Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth,” vested interests and economic forces have resulted in the world doing] little or nothing to slow planetary warming, prompting “How to Let Go of the World and Love All the Things Climate Can’t Change” from Josh Fox, the activist-filmmaker behind the Oscar-nominated documentary “Gasland.” It is] an unwieldy movie with an unwieldy title, but…a fascinating, heartbreaking and ultimately inspiring ride…[that shows the enormous disruption] is both a crisis and an important opportunity…Fox suggests that such devastation won’t wipe out the best and strongest…and that those remain our best tools going into a profoundly uncertain future…Some of our rainforests and estuaries and major human metropolises will be lost or greatly altered…Some of the animal species we have doggedly tried to rescue from extinction will disappear, or live on only as imprisoned zoo specimens. But not all…[T]here is time to save what can be saved. That starts with human consciousness and human culture, the part of us that has known all along that a society built on greed and gluttony, on endless expansion and endless acquisition, was doomed to fail. Now it has, or almost has, or soon will. Can we find the courage and resilience to build something new?” click here for more
