Presentation: Going Rogue: Russ George and the Problem of Governance in Geoengineering

10. July 2016, Vianna/Austria

Oral Presentation at the ISA Forum of Sociology. "In this paper I review the evidence on how the world has dealt – or, more exactly, failed to deal  -- with Russ George.  I then ask:  What can we learn from the failure to control him about the problem of governance if the world’s nations at some point start think that geoengineering is the only option left to them?

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."
