A poem in Carbon Copy: a new journal of climate science and the literary arts

Posted by  in News

The new journal Carbon Copy bills itself as “a journal at the intersection of climate science and the literary arts.” I’m grateful to have a poem in its inaugural issue. The poem is titled “In the Anthropocene, there can be no climate in the old sense; only weathercultures, with people acting as weatherculturalists.” The poem’s title is a direct quote from Mike Hulme, from his book Weathered: Cultures of Climate.

You can find the journal’s homepage here, and the poem here.
