Saturday Link Love: Megan Rapinoe, Sustainability, Nuclear Catastrophe, and Amelia Bedelia

Saturday Link Love: Megan Rapinoe, Sustainability, Nuclear Catastrophe, and Amelia Bedelia June 22, 2019

Saturday Link Love is a feature where I collect and post links to various articles I’ve come upon over the past week. Feel free to share any interesting articles you’ve come along as well! The more the merrier!

Megan Rapinoe explains why she’s not participating in national anthem, on Today—“Colin Kaepernick very much inspired me, and inspired an entire nation, and still does, to actually think about these things.”

Science Has A Sustainability Problem, on FiveThirtyEight—“Mauricio Urbina was trying to save the planet on the day he realized he was simultaneously destroying it.”

If Only We Could Be As Anxious About Climate Change As We Can Be About Nuclear Catastrophe, on Slate—“In the case of Chernobyl, a show that some have hailed as a welcome bit of environmental storytelling at a time when we desperately need it, the choices Mazin made show just how difficult it is to tell similarly effective stories about climate change.”

The Secret Rebellion of Amelia Bedelia, the Bartleby of Domestic Work, on the New Yorker—“Bartleby teaches us to look for resistance in forms of ascetic refusal; Amelia Bedelia turns passive aggression into a kind of art.” [Note: I didn’t agree with everything written here, and I feel like there’s a lot more to be talked about when it comes to Amelia Bedelia.]

Migrant children describe neglect at Texas border facility, on the AP—“In my 22 years of doing visits with children in detention I have never heard of this level of inhumanity.”
