In 2011 I wrote an essay about how the convention of escape undermines our thinking about the environmental crises we are facing. A kind reader of mine emailed to tell me about how she uses that essay “Outrunning the Boom” in her classroom, and her wonderful students responded with this video. Apparently, outrunning the boom is way cooler than I knew. No wonder I’m not winning the rhetoric war ! H/T to Anna – Thanks!
