Sometimes, what we think we know about the natural world is based more on story-telling than the scientific method. Calling something a “just-so story” in science is almost universally intended as a criticism. The term is a reference to Rudyard Kipling’s collection of children’s fables that playfully use species traits as a framework for teaching kids important life lessons. “How the Rhinoceros Got His Skin,” “How the Leopard Got His Spots,” and “How the Camel Got His Hump” offer moral, rather than scientific, explanations for evolution. They’re entertaining, but not factually accurate (hence the pejorative).

I was incredibly honored to speak with Rajat Chaudhuri about his novel The Butterfly Effect. See http://workshop.dragonfly.eco/the-butterfly-effect/.

"The so-called realist novel, because of its debt to the Enlightenment, has shied away from engaging with Nature and issues involving large collectives, and focused instead on what John Updike calls an 'individual moral adventure'. This focus, Amitav Ghosh points out in his seminal work on climate change – The Great Derangement – has ghettoised all other kinds of writing, placing them in genre fiction."

I’m kicking off a new ClimateCultures series — and a new section on our website — to explore Members’ responses to film and audio pieces that open up a space for reflection (whether head-on or at a slant) on environmental and climate change. ClimateCultures addresses these topics and our evolving nature-culture relationships within the Anthropocene era, and perhaps a focus on these two mediums, sound and vision, can use our personal sense of change, of movement in space, time, consciousness and emotion, to help make these issues more accessible. In this post, I’ve chosen two pieces that touch on seemingly very different spheres of interest for me — how human and non-human animals live, and how processes of change shape our coasts and our awareness of them; but in talking about them, I find they both provoke connecting thoughts on time and tide in our relationship with the more-than-human. https://climatecultures.net/creative-works/time-and-tide/

This is probably old news to some folks in this group... but I just finished reading two awesome solarpunk collections and wanted to recommend them.

- Glass and Gardens: Solarpunk Summers ( https://www.amazon.com/Glass-Gardens-Solarpunk-Sarena-Ulibarri-ebook/dp/B07B8X9CW3 ). This is more optimistic in its general outlook and lifted my spirits when contemplating the future. Don't know about you all, but I need a little "spiritual buoyancy" these days.

- Sunvault: Stories of Solarpunk and Eco-Speculation ( https://www.amazon.com/Sunvault-Solarpunk-Eco-Speculation-C-Wise-ebook/dp/B071J8QD6H/ ). The tone and tenor of the stories are definitely darker, but there are glimmers of light. How could there not be with a title like "Sunvault"? ;-)

I heartily recommend both of these. Really excellent and diverse!
