Subhankar Banerjee, whoâ€™s recent book Arctic Voices, highlights the oil business in the North from the perspectives of the people who live there, has written a piece for ClimateStoryTellers.orgÂ on humour.
Arctic Voices was well received,
â€œOne of the great strengths of Arctic Voices is that it shows how Alaska and the Arctic are tied to the places where most of us live. In this impassioned book, Banerjee shows a situation so serious that it has created a movement, where â€œvoices of resistance are gathering, are getting louder and louder.â€ May his heartfelt efforts magnify them. The climate changes that are coming have hit soon and hard in the Arctic, and their consequences may be starkest there.â€â€”Ian Frazier, The New York Review of Books
In the piece Laughing MattersÂ he highlights the long history and importance of humour as a means to shame otherwise impervious politicians.
