Lecture: Fixing Everything? Historicizing Climate Intervention
13. July 2016, Bonn/Germany
"This presentation traces historical pathways leading to the contemporary grand challenge of climate change. It offers a critique of “barking mad” technological fixes that seek to intervene in and control climate and unpacks the limitations of an “interventionist” Anthropocene – the proposed, but sorely under-conceptualized new era that, in its reductionism, determinism and bald anthropocentrism, is profoundly disturbing."
