discourses of climate delay

the horsemen of climate delay ride together
the redirector of responsibility
the pusher of non-transformative solutions
the emphasizer of the downside
the surrenderer
all striving to limit our actions, these enablers of the climate apocalypse


In 2020, postdoctoral researcher William Lamb from the University of Leeds published a study on the discourses of climate delay (Lamb et al. 2020). They found 4 core statements and this poem explores those typologies.
