Draft: the cultural climate crisis, global to local &cSaturday, November 9th, 2019
[ by Charles Cameron — i’m posting here some earlv drafts of longer pieces i’m working on for eventual publication elsewhere — this is a draft of the outline of a paper on climate change ]
How about them Independent headlines?
I intend to write a longish paper in which I voyage from the global to the intensely and varied local, and then catch up with cross-cuts that have either appeared in sundry of the localized sections but deserve gathering under their own heads, or which have somehow escaped the net of my keen interest.
For now, though, I thought this spray of headlines from the Independent would make a nice intro to the project for ZP readers.
‘Untold human suffering’: 11,000 scientists from across world unite Extinction Rebellion: Nearly 400 scientists support climate activists’ civil disobedience Climate activists including Extinction Rebellion to receive £500,000 Why the Green Party is proposing £100bn a year Climate ‘apocalypse’ to leave Scotland with abandoned villages Scotland plants 22 million trees to tackle climate crisis Ireland becomes second country in the world Our ageing world rulers are unfit to tackle climate change
Of course I’m a Scot down my father’s line, clan Cameron, of the Camerons of Erracht.
