This talk limns the landscape of suicide in Africa, but also here in the US, as a means to contemplate the deadly and I believe escalating psychic toll of our environmental predicament. It asks how climate change — a welter of incremental, corrosive shifts layered with sudden catastrophic events generated and perpetuated through industrial systems of profit can get under the skin and into the human psyche.
