A Book Worth Sharing –

The Great Derangement: Climate Change and the Unthinkable” By Amitav Ghosh

One of the best books I have read on climate change.
The Great Derangement, which is based on a
series of University of Chicago lectures, is about
humanity’s insane inaction in the face of climate
change. And one of the central points Ghosh
makes is this: “When future generations look back
upon the Great Derangement they will certainly
blame the leaders and politicians of this time for
their failure to address the climate crisis.
But they may well hold artists and writers to be
equally culpable — for the imagining of possibilities
is not, after all, the job of politicians and bureaucrats.”

A Movie Worth Sharing –
One of the most underrated films of recent time.
Guillermo del Toro ranked “Zodiac” #1 on his list of
the best movies Fincher has ever made, saying he
watches it “at least twice a year.”
Read, Guillermo del Toro’s analysis of “Zodiac” in 13 tweets.
