Adam McKay, director of the movie Don’t Look Up, has written an intriguing article in The Guardian as to how we, as individuals, can act in response to climate change. The title of the article is I directed Don’t Look Up. When it comes to the climate crisis, the ending is up to us. Here is part of what McKay says.

Maybe some film or gif or TikTok has jostled you to think seriously about what you can do. Specifically you. Well, here’s one way to answer that question: think of a Venn diagram with three overlapping circles. In the first, put what you’re good at. (So, which Avenger are you and what are your specific super powers?) In the second, put what part of the climate challenge you want to work on. (Your mission, should you choose to accept it.) In the third, put what brings you joy. (What, for you, isn’t work because you love it so much?) And then find your way to the epicenter of that climate action Venn diagram for as many minutes of your life as you can. We don’t all have to do the same thing – in fact we shouldn’t.

Here is the Venn diagram that he refers to.
