  • SUICIDE EARTH (#8) Roman Krznaric -- The Good Ancestor | w. Van Carter

    in Environment

    The Good Ancestor, A Radical Prescription for Long-Term Thinking (Nov 2020, The Experiment) is by leading public philosopher Roman Krznaric.  A timely perspective for this moment in history.
    Businesses eschew civic responsibility for immediate gains, politicians throw their support behind whatever will win the next election, and we all struggle to focus our attention beyond the next alert from our phones.  The result?
    An inexcusable chasm between the haves and have-nots--and mounting existential threats--have brought our species to the precipice of disaster.  Yet Krznaric sees reason to hope... if we can trade short-sightedness with long-term thinking.  In The Good Ancestor, Krznaric reveals six practical ways we can retrain our brains to think of the long view, including Deep Humility (recognizing our lives as a cosmic eyeblink) and Cathedral Thinking (starting projects that will take more than one lifetime to complete).  His aim is to inspire more "time rebels" like Greta Thunberg--to shift our allegiance from this generation to all of humanity--in short, to save our planet and our future.

  • SUICIDE EARTH (#9) J.K. Ullrich -- Blue Karma | w. Van Carter

    in Environment

    (A fiction account that helps all of us see the bleak future we are creating.)
    Blue Karma (Mar 2019, Spaekona Press) by J.K. Ullrich. Came out digitally in 2015.  In the near dystopian future, water is the coin of the realm.  People steal it.  People die for it.  Empires depend on it.  Water.  It covers almost three quarters of the planet, comprises more than half the human body, and has become the most coveted resource on Earth.  And because of its sudden scarcity, humans around the world have been displaced.
    J.K. Ullrich investigates the future as a technology analyst by day and a science fiction writer by night. She published her award-winning debut novel Blue Karma in 2015, followed by the Syzygy novella series. “In Blue Karma I envisioned a near future where this plight was so common, people had developed a vocabulary shortcut for the issue. Thus I coined the term “engee”, a portmanteau of “environmental refugee”. I never imagined applying the term in a real-life context so soon after dreaming it up, but that’s exactly what’s happening.”
