From Deep Freeze to Heat Waves

What happens to an industrial infrastructure that is dependant on a relatively stable ecological climate when that stability begins to erode? Within the confines of our contemporary political economy there has been little conversation and analysis that has intentionally attempted to make connections between the more tangible manifestations of climate change. From ground water contamination, sacrifice and ecological dead zones to food shortages, floods, carnivore cleansing and mass die-offs the 21st century allows us to view compounding collapse like in no other point throughout history. This presentation is about this new ecological constant. From Haiyan to hail in Hawaii. We will be utilizing these realities as a backdrop to understanding capital’s response and anticipation of inevitable climate shifts vis-à-vis geoengineering.
