In his bundled essays “Confessions of a recovering environmentalist” (2017) former environmental activist and writer Paul Kingsnorth describes how some weak-kneed accountants of this world hollowed out the green movement from the inside and exchanged the barricades for ties and conference tables. Limiting CO2 emissions became the new gospel because it was measurable and countable. But according to Kingsnorth, that is an illusion. He thinks that in his victory rush, the green movement of today exchanges the remaining wild nature for a wind or solar panel farm. The battle is lost.
This documentary gives Kingsnorth the time to explain how humanity still can be hopeful although the battle against climate change in his eyes has been lost.
