CAN WE STOP CLIMATE CHANGE? Jonathan Franzen argues that it is delusional to think we can still save the planet from climate change, because rising temperatures will inevitably cause global catastrophe (“What If We Stopped Pretending?,” September 8th, newyorker.com/franzen). He says that we should resign ourselves to the destruction to come. This argument promotes complacency and hopelessness, and it gives an easy out to people who might otherwise advocate for the political action we need. I trust the climate scientists and activists who believe we have the resources to create a hopeful future. Franzen does not offer reality—he offers defeat. Judy SchneierBrooklyn, N.Y. If environmentalists resent Franzen’s piece, it is only because it presents the state of human inaction on climate in a well-reasoned, clear-sighted, and complex way. We cannot prevent cataclysmic temperatures…

goings on about town: this week

The New York Film Festival (Sept. 27-Oct. 13), the city’s main showcase for new movies from around the world, is also a cornucopia of classics and rediscoveries. This year’s revivals include “The Little Girl Who Sold the Sun” (1999), by the Senegalese director Djibril Diop Mambéty, about a child working to survive in Dakar; Luis Buñuel’s Surrealist 1930 film “L’Âge d’Or”; and Frank Borzage’s “Street Angel” (from 1928, above), one of the three films for which Janet Gaynor received the first Oscar for Best Actress. THE THEATRE American Moor Cherry Lane Who is Othello to a black actor? The famous Moor, a character who is now almost exclusively played by a black man (the Laurence Olivier days behind us), may become a means to some representation of blackness. In Red Bull Theatre’s “American Moor,”…

tables for two: red hook tavern

You could say that Billy Durney, the man behind Red Hook Tavern, stumbled into the restaurant business. Around 2008, while working as a celebrity bodyguard, the Brooklyn native began noodling around with a smoker at home in South Park Slope, cooking barbecue as a way to blow off steam. Before long, he was taking research trips to study under pit masters in Texas, Illinois, and South America, painstakingly honing his recipes and techniques. In 2013, he opened Hometown Bar-B-Que in a converted garage in Red Hook; it quickly became one of New York’s most exciting places to eat, in part because of how unassuming it is, in the grand tradition of American barbecue restaurants. Hometown’s ragged slices of brisket and hulking beef ribs, served on wax paper, are as delicious…

comment: a climate change?

Late last month, Greta Thunberg, the sixteen-year-old climate activist from Sweden, arrived in New York. Thunberg, who is sometimes compared to Joan of Arc and sometimes to Pippi Longstocking, doesn’t fly—the emissions from aviation are too high—so she’d spent two weeks sailing across the Atlantic in a racing boat. When she reached New York Harbor, she told Trevor Noah, on “The Daily Show,” the first thing she noticed was “Suddenly, it smells.” Thunberg doesn’t adhere to social niceties. (She’s spoken openly about having Asperger’s syndrome.) She began her crusade last year, sitting outside the Swedish parliament building, in Stockholm, handing out flyers that read “I am doing this because you adults are shitting on my future.” It’s a trait particularly well suited to the cause she’s taken up: on no other…

the campaign trail: as seen on tv

Some people believe that, in 1968, Richard Nixon beat Hubert Humphrey in four seconds, by looking into a camera and asking, “Sock it to me?” on “Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In.” If cameos really can move voters, then it would seem that President Donald Trump has an advantage going into 2020. Trump has made around two dozen cameos, appearing in “Sex and the City” (he flirts with Samantha), “Home Alone 2” (he tells Macaulay Culkin where the lobby is), “The Little Rascals” (in the role of Waldo’s dad), and “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” (Carlton: “It’s the Donald!”). He favors a certain kind of role: characters who get to kiss attractive women or give sage business advice. Waldo’s dad is just a rich guy who has a weird relationship with his…
