Rebecca Solnit on Climate Change, Resistance, Misogyny and "The Mother of All Questions"
: We spend the rest of the hour with one of the nation’s most celebrated writers, Rebecca Solnit, who has written about climate change for years, including one widely read essay headlined "Call climate change what it is: violence." She wrote, "Climate change is global-scale violence, against places and species as well as against human beings. Once we call it by name, we can start having a real conversation about our priorities and values. Because the revolt against brutality begins with a revolt against the language that hides that brutality."
