(re)programming | Ep. #3: Energy [w/ Holly Jean Buck]

Can We Repair the Climate?

Holly Jean Buck works at the interface of environmental sociology, international development, and science and technology studies. In her book After Geoengineering, she takes a deep dive into the envisioning, development and deployment of tactics and schemes for deliberately intervening in the environment, including Solar Radiation Management (SRM) and Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR). What we have to do to restore the planet is clearer than ever, we have the technologies and the money to do it. The obstacle, then, is social and political. We should acknowledge that what we are facing is not a climate crisis but an ecological crisis, one where people need to have a say in the plan and where specific exit strategies for every country and reality must emerge through building a consensus in communities.

Guests: Rok Kranjc, sustainability transitions researcher, translator and editor; Senka Šifkovič Vrbica, lawyer working in the fields of legal protection of the environment; Borut Tavčar, journalist who focuses on environmental issues.
