Wake Up, Freak Out - then Get a Grip from Leo Murray on Vimeo.
What effect ought potential catastrophes have on our collective moral deliberations and resolutions? This short film is one example of a discourse pattern that seems quite common. How valid are its moves? I am not here asking about the validity of its empirical claims about the present state or causes of climate change,* but the rhetorical and ethical resources this kind of discourse marshals to shape collective deliberations.
