Gannon, Kate Elizabeth (2015): ‘40 Million Salmon Might Be Wrong’. Ecological Worldviews and Geoengineering Technologies: The Case of the Haida Salmon Restoration Corporation. Dissertation. King's College London, London. Department of Geography.

"This thesis suggests that ‘geoengineering’ will always be performed and expressed through unique ‘surface contents’ and contextually specific meanings. However, interpretative resources described in relation to a range of other geoengineering proposals and through more abstract entry points into thinking about geoengineering also find salience through the study frames. ‘Geoengineering’ in Haida Gwaii connects with wider cultural meanings and literatures that consider the human relationship with nature. Furthermore, the study factors are suggested to have some interpretative
overlap with ideal-typical ‘worldview’ heuristics described in earlier literatures that have sought to describe dominant currents of cultural meaning in contemporary Western society."
