Endless screams and wails

2017-05-15

in Psychology, Rants, Toronto

It’s selfish, but one thing I hate about living in central Toronto is that there are sirens of one type or another audible almost all day and all night long. Even when no sirens can actually be heard, I hear them screaming in my imagination.

The message: “It’s an emergency! But you can’t do anything about it” is frustrating and also a reminder of my feelings of pained impotence in response to climate change.

What a strong metaphor you have created. You have done quite a bit to contribute to the awareness of the seriousness of climate change. Your divestment brief is helping others organize and present their divestment campaigns.
