( ─‿─) Nº233 Enjoy Don't Destroy 🤗🧨
By Jon Woodroof • Issue #233 • View online
Hello!
This week’s subject line was inspired by a sticker in a bike shop bathroom that likely alluded to not mountain biking on muddy trails or maybe it was about not tearing up your two-wheeled friend on the turbo all winter. Maybe it meant enjoy don’t destroy the planet?
This evening, googling ‘enjoy don’t destroy, brought me across many reviews of Don’t Look Up; a recently scathing satire of how those with power and influence would react if humanity were threatened with imminent annihilation. Spoiler alert: they’d react poorly & this film is a thinly veiled allegory for climate change. Extra spoiler alert: most reviews are mixed. lol. But some people get it:
“IF YOU’RE WONDERING whether we’ll do anything about global warming before it destroys civilization, think about this ominous fact: It occupies barely any space in popular culture.” Jon Schwarz, The Intercept
I found an interview with the film’s director Adam McKay. He talked comets, climate change, and total disaster with Chelsea Gohd at space.com:
“I just hope people — through laughing, through engaging with the movie — could just see things a little bit differently when it comes to and feel the urgency of the climate crisis and feel the urgency of the moment, maybe just a little bit more,” – Adam McKay
This will be a movie I’ll likely watch with the kids over the break and hope their generation follows up on the efforts I hope mine can follow through on to steer our planet off a collision course with a fate our parents, grandparents, and those before them chose to create.
thank you, as always, for reading & sharing this newsletter,
