Moments from XR Derby in 2021




Don’t Look Up


New film, available on Netflix, and watched by many of us over the break.

Loved by climate scientists (who feel, at last, represented). Criticised by film critics (with no sense of the irony of inadvertently writing themselves into the script 🤣).

Highly recommended to watch and share.

“The movie Don’t Look Up is satire. But speaking as a climate scientist doing everything I can to wake people up and avoid planetary destruction, it’s also the most accurate film about society’s terrifying non-response to climate breakdown I’ve seen.” Peter Kalmus
