Dalby, S. (2015): Anthropocene Formations: Environmental Security, Geopolitics and Disaster. In Theory, Culture & Society. DOI 10.1177/0263276415598629.

"Disasters such as the Fukushima nuclear meltdowns and potentially disastrous plans to geoengineer the climate in coming decades highlight that the human environment is being remade in the Anthropocene. Humanity is now a geological actor, not just a biological one, and that insight, captured in the term Anthropocene, changes understandings of both security and environment in social thought, requiring a focus on production of environments rather than their protection. Disasters help clarify this key point and its significance for considering geosocial formations."
