More on Collapse
Still thinking about Jared Diamond's Collapse. Michael O'Hare points out why American football injuries are like climate change. And Diamond's warning of floods of Third World refugees fleeing environmental catastrophe reminded me of the best film I saw last year: Alfonso Cuaron's apocalyptic Children of Men. If you can't imagine a militaristic UK with large tracts of the country turned into concentration camps for asylum seekers, Clive Owen, Julianne Moore and Michael Caine will give you a pretty good idea.
