‘Neoliberals are ruthless. They are prepared to gamble on technologies like solar geoengineering and risk gigantic catastrophes because they care about the market so much.’
This week, Grace speaks to Troy Vetesse and Drew Pendergrass about their book Half-Earth Socialism.
They discuss the problems with proposed solutions to climate breakdown like geoengineering, how neoliberals are coping with the recognition that state planning will be necessary to tackle climate breakdown, and how we can build coalitions to make sure that planning is democratic.
