Climate Resistance fisks a ‘debate’ between “two apocalyptic nutcases” , Paul Kingsnorth and George Monbiot.


Among the conclusion-

The ethics, politics and science of Monbiot and the literature movement that Kingsnorth hopes to create, if they ever flourish, (as much as anything so negative can ‘flourish’) will create an era in human history that will be called ‘the redarkenment’, and the ‘unnaissance’.

Hey, that has been the story of philosophers and intellectuals for the last century and a half or so -their war to bring down renaissance, enlightenment and industrial civilization.


If you read one thing today, make it this.
