Thank you Naomi Klein

Joshua Hyams, the producer of The Trip 2 (with my favorite Steve Coogan) wrote me to tell me I was in the closing credits for my help on the screenplay. 

But there's more--he said Naomi Klein had cited me in The Guardian today. Nice one: 

So much of our economy relies on the assumption that there is always an "away" into which we can throw our waste. There's the away where our garbage goes when it is taken from the curb, and the away where our waste goes when it is flushed down the drain. There's the away where the minerals and metals that make up our goods are extracted, and the away where those raw materials are turned into finished products. But the lesson of the BP spill, in the words of ecological theorist Timothy Morton, is that ours is "a world in which there is no 'away.'"
