2077. Art and climate

…it has become clear that global warming is in every sense a collective predicament, humanity finds itself in the thrall of a dominant culture in which the idea of the collective has been exiled from politics, economics and literature alike. Inasmuch as contemporary fiction is caught in this thraldom, this is one of the most powerful ways in which global warming resists it: it is as if the gas had run out on a generation accustomed to jet skis, leaving them with the task of reinventing sails and oars.”

Excerpt From: Amitav Ghosh. “The Great Derangement: Climate Change and the Unthinkable.” Apple Books.
