If you’re poor, the only way you’re likely to injure someone is the old traditional way: artisanal violence, we could call it – by hands, by knife, by club, or maybe modern hands-on violence, by gun or by car.
But if you’re tremendously wealthy, you can practice industrial-scale violence without any manual labor on your own part. You can, say, build a sweatshop factory that will collapse in Bangladesh and kill more people than any hands-on mass murderer ever did, or you can calculate risk and benefit about putting poisons or unsafe machines into the world, as manufacturers do every day. If you’re the leader of a country, you can declare war and kill by the hundreds of thousands or millions. And the nuclear superpowers – the US and Russia – still hold the option of destroying quite a lot of life on Earth.
So do the carbon barons. But when we talk about violence, we almost always talk about violence from below, not above.
Or so I thought when I received a press release last week from a climate group announcing that ” scientists say there is a direct link between changing climate and an increase in violence”. What the scientists actually said, in a not-so-newsworthy article in Nature two and a half years ago, is that there is higher conflict in the tropics in El Nino years, and that perhaps this will scale up to make our age of climate change also an era of civil and international conflict.
The message is that ordinary people will behave badly in an era of intensified climate change."
Did you know there was a Sex Criminals pinball machine made in 1969? Only eleven were ever built. One is known to survive.

Photographer Oscar Zabala talking about his work “Sojourners”
Lookbooks: “Tell us about your most surreal shoot.”
Oscar Zabala: “Me and a few of my best friends went to South America. It was the first day of actual shooting for a series we were doing. We all ate some “happy” cookies and ran around the fields on the top of a mountain naked. We were the only people for probably 50 miles. I felt like we were literally on top of the world as I was capturing all those moments.”
