Development Paradox – Michelle Cummings

Development Paradox – Michelle Cummings
Like many of the people featured in Josh Fox’s “How to Let Go of the World and Love All the Things Climate Can’t Change” occasionally we get gob smacked when faced with the cold hard facts. Extreme weather events are getting worse. Today is May 18th I left the house wearing the same jacket, boots and scarf I wore this Christmas when it was like 60-degree. If you have doubts about global warming go see this oddly titled movie.
Josh Fox’s new film is a must see documentary. It is inspiring and heartbreaking at the same time. Not depressing like Gasland, in fact it may motivate the climate activist in you. The docu does a great job showing how climate change affects people differently depending on their socioeconomic status. One of the most memorable aspects of the film was a chant from a group of Pacific Climate Warriors “We are not drowning, we are fighting.” New Yorkers, regardless of there SES are resilient, but as the film pointed out New York is at risk of sea level rising. Has anyone ever heard NYC is sinking?
