The importance of telling new climate stories-stories that center the persistence of life itself, that embrace comedy and radical hope. Our miscomprehension of the climate crisis comes about because we have been telling the wrong stories. These stories are pervasive; they come from long narrative traditions, sanctioned by capitalism, Hollywood, and social media, and they revolve around a myth. So we need new stories-stories that center the persistence of life, rather than of capitalism, stories that embrace contradiction and complexity. We can create new stories based on comedy and radical hope. These attitudes require a new way of thinking.
