Carter Phipps’ Newest Article Critiquing “Don’t Look Up” Has Been Published

By Steve McIntosh

We are pleased to announce that we have published Carter Phipps’ most recent article entitled “It’s the Comet, Stupid!” in the Post-Progressive Post. This article is a critique of the Netflix movie Don’t Look Up, but more importantly, it is a critique of the oversimplified way the American public thinks about the challenge of addressing climate change, which Don’t Look Up is an allegory for. Carter points out the many tradeoffs and complexities that need to be negotiated in addressing climate change, and how oversimplification of these complexities leads to unproductive moralizing, demonizing, and paralysis. Check out this important new article in the Post-Progressive Post here:
