Silver Bullets for the Future?

Here, you find another critical view on the ‘Ecomodernist manifesto’ recently discussed by Johannes.

„There is no space for the messiness of politics in this ecomodernist world: just neat pieces of kit, technical innovation, human ingenuity and common human interests, all underpinned by a shared love of nature. But who benefits from decisions about technology and the maintenance of contemporary patterns of wealth and wellbeing. Whose nature is preserved? Here the Manifesto is silent.“

It perfectly adds to the present discussion on transformative research and post-democracy initiated by Peter Strohschneider in his paper ‚On the Politics of Transformative Research‚.
