“In the opening pages, I immediately recognized that here was an author who actually gets what the ‘Anthropocene’ entails both in terms of the physical science and the political economy of our times and conveys this in such a readable and accessible style.”
Christopher Wright is the co-author, with Daniel Nyberg, of Climate Change, Capitalism, and Corporations: Processes of Creative Self-Destruction (Cambridge University Press, 2015).
He gave this talk at the book launch meeting for Facing the Anthropocene: Fossil Capitalism and the Crisis of the Earth System, in Sydney, Australia, on May 13, 2016.
Ian Angus’s talk at the same meeting is online here.
