The Hundred Years' Binge/The Current Predicament

Our newest film, “The Hundred Years’ Binge,” is based on an essay published in 1989 in the New Yorker, and re-posted to the New Yorker Archives newsletter for Earth Day 2022, entitled “The End of Nature.” It is shocking to confront how much we knew that long ago, and how little has actually been done since then to avert the climate and extinction crises now urgently facing us. So shocking that Jack has written a poem about it, “The Current Predicament,” extracted from Bill McKibben’s New Yorker essay, which we have turned into a film, as a call to action for our viewers.
