In the Washington Post, 2022 ACLS Digital Justice Grantee Ricia Chansky writes about the fifth anniversary of Hurricane María and climate disaster. She discusses a new game, the Hurricane Simulator, and how it serves as an apt metaphor for the way the United States has responded to climate change.
The game is a symptom and reflection of a larger crisis, built by individuals, corporations and governments that have not faced up to a global emergency caused by human degradation of the environment.
Read “Climate disaster isn’t a game. When will the U.S. stop playing?” in the Washington Post.
Chansky is a professor at the University of Puerto Rico and a senior climate justice fellow at the Humanities Action Lab.
