What is the “IT” that we are trying to pin down when we talk about Climate Change?
When the NORTHBOUND 63 collective sits down to talk about this show, there is a lot of talk about “IT”. What is the “IT” that we wrestle with when contemplating the question of how to stop, or even reverse the path global capitalism has committed us to?
It’s difficult to define what we’re up against and who is implicated when we look at humanity in the face of climate change. The answers are much deeper and more complex than: Big Bad Oil. They are rooted in a system that implicates all of us. That is the rabbit hole we’ve jumped down with NORTHBOUND 63.
