How to Let Go of the World and Love All the Things Climate Can’t Change | Josh Fox

It’s an important film. In How to Let Go of the World and Love All the Things Climate Can’t Change, filmmaker Josh Fox asks the question:

“What are those parts of us that are so deep,
that no storm can take them away?”
~ Josh Fox

Why is this film important? If we can’t deal with climate change, we need to prepare to conclude the human species with as much dignity and compassion as we can muster. Part of that is to honor and celebrate the simple pleasures of kinship with people and nature–while we may.

Ken Jaworowski of The New York Times says How to Let Go of the World and Love All the Things Climate Can’t Change is: “Tough. As in, tough to watch. Tough to consider. Tough to ignore.”

Be aware. Be fair.

      Thank you for the reblog, Paul! Peace.

    The Great Wall of China segment featured the Asian woman and energy science expert mention the three words: “..viable technical solutions”. Ways of positively transforming humanity’s energy systems worldwide are already available and ready for implementation on a massive scale – they are “viable”.

    • JoAnn Chateau

      They certainly are viable, and they’re money-making opportunities for businesses. India has a new airport that is completely solar powered. Morocco just finished the 1st stage of a big solar project (local energy), and they plan to sell energy to Europe when it’s completed.

      I guess American business wants to prop up the fossil fuel industry instead of foster renewable energy innovations. The rest of the world will leave us behind.

        A friend from Britain shared a link to a film he watched recently and highly recommended titled “Demain”, which is in the precise same genre as Josh Fox’s film you presented here. He suggested arranging a screening by going to the film website, so thought you and your readers would certainly have an interest… Thanks, JoAnn

    Is this assuming there’s no going back?

    • JoAnn Chateau

      Continuing with our present foot-dragging climate change intervention, yes. Even if we completely stopped all pollution today, the climate would continue to warm for many years.

      Have we already crossed the point-of-no-return? Experts express disagreement on that. But the experts who think “there’s no going back,” sincerely hope they are wrong.
