    Were Doomed Now What? Download Í 100 Were Doomed Now What, There is a lot of good in this book it just needed to be written by someone else Roy Scranton and most of humanity is part of the reason why we're doomed He knows how bad the systems within the machine that is killing our planet Like eating meat traveling air travel specifically and consumerism all of which he still participates in So why should a person read a book about how bad it is and specifically NOW WHAT When the author himself can't even sacrifice his pers

    Were Doomed Now What? Download Í 100 Were Doomed Now What, I wrote this in May after finishing the book then I decided that I sounded intemperate so I took down the review But I just read Jonathan Safran Foer disagree with Scranton on the same point in We Are the Weather so I'll put my review back up Foer doesn't say he hates Scranton like I do of course and he's articulate in his critiue than I was This was just my immediate responseI had a certain admiration for Roy Scranton based on his previous manifesto Learning to Die in the Anthropocene I thought it was challenging and surprising tough minded Now I basically hate him He comes across as angry pretentious self serving and self aggrandizing I especially despised the discussion in which he pretends to consider purely it turns out for rhetorical effect the recognized ways that first world humans can ameliorate climate change then he glibly explains why he can't do them eat a plant based

    Were Doomed Now What? Download Í 100 Were Doomed Now What, The greatest peril in life lies in the fact that human food consists entirely of souls an Inuk named Invaluardjuk told Danish anthropologist Knud Rasmussen a century ago All the creatures that we have to kill and eat all those that we have to strike down and destroy to make clothes for ourselves have souls like we have souls that do not perish with the body

    Were Doomed Now What? Download Í 100 Were Doomed Now What, Some really good essays that deserve five stars in this collection it gets a four for a few essays that seem like filler I think Scranton is a very honest writer like Orwell who doesn't give the easy answer but the truthful one His book is bracingly pessimistic about our prospects but better to be told the truth than what we want to hear One should always be on the lookout for such writers

    Were Doomed Now What? Download Í 100 Were Doomed Now What, Roy Scranton “We’re Doomed Now What” Essays on War and Climate Change is frankly a misnomer there is nothing in this about climate change I bought this book thinking that I really would appreciate someone giving me a philosophical foundation for dealing with my feelings about the Climate changing so rapidly that it’s going to result in a mass extinction of life on this planet Well you shouldn’t believe a book just by it’s cover this one is about the Author Roy Scranton and his personal experience in his journey into the heart of darkness of US imperial overreach by way of his choice to volunteer for the Army and to fight in Ira The whole book is about this and how he lost his romantic illusi

    Were Doomed Now What? Download Í 100 Were Doomed Now What, The title and cover of the paperback do this book a disservice Perhaps the author had little or no say and the publisher thought it would sell better to package a book of essays largely drawn on the author's experiences serving in the US Army in Ira during wartime as a book about climate change and warUnlike books by Michael Klare or others who write about resource wars Scranton's book says little not nothing but little about how climate change has or could lead to wars And nothing at all matching the cover image of a first world city appearing to be swamped by storms from sea level riseIndeed essays at the beginning and end are about climate change and merge some thoughtful perspectives from both the author's own experience and his readings in literature and critical theory I understand it's a collection of essays But the chapters often seem to hav

    Were Doomed Now What? Download Í 100 Were Doomed Now What, 25 stars Audiobook Reader okayThe first essay felt like the author was channeling David Foster Wallace at his most incoherently esoteric I almost gave up but one of the beauties of essays is you move on to the nextI liked most of the rest of the essays though there were some dull spots so dull I've already forgotten why I liked his war essays especially perspective of being in the military in Ira and what he learned Like some of my contemporaries who experienced Vietnam he came out with problems to deal with and a very different view He also aptly pointed out how the US has long been a country with a culture of problem solving by violence both domestically and internationallyThe last essay had some annoying features mostly because it seemed like an apology for not making changes because they are hard and now he has a kid so needs to cling to the affluen
