Supercontext: Learning To Die In The Anthropocene: Reflections on the End of a Civilization, by Roy Scranton

This treatise on climate change argues that we should just accept that our civilization is going to die. We might survive however, by remembering our cultural heritage. We discuss Scranton’s experience at war, as well as the variety of reactions to his claim that we should just confront our own mortality, even when we’re posting to social media.
