After Geoengineering with Holly Jean Buck
***Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, we regret to inform you that this event has now been cancelled.***
As the human species hurtles ever faster toward its own extinction, the idea of climate engineering has a seductive allure: geoengineering—large-scale, manual intervention in the Earth’s systems—might buy us time, remove carbon, offset industrial damage. Yet we’re right to fear that such technologies will be used to maintain the status quo.
Join author and global environmental change researcher Holly Jean Buck as she presents her new book After Geoengineering—a thrilling, critical, utopian and urgent look at the landscape of climate intervention and a catalogue of potential lives after geoengineering.
Fusing her extensive scientific research with exploratory speculative fiction, Buck takes the stage to discuss the current narrative of geoengineering, rehabilitating the potential of intervention in our environment as a radical act of salvation, and demonstrating the hows and whys of the kind of massive social change necessary to ensure the possible futures of degrowth, renewable energy, sustainable agriculture and climate justice.
The event will be followed by a Q&A and book signing.
