Atmospheric Dialectics: Reflections on Climate Catastrophe

This talk, entitled “Atmospheric Dialectics: Reflections on Climate Catastrophe,” was given on 25 June at the 3rd Annual Los Angeles Anarchist Bookfair.  It takes after the talk of the same name presented at the April 2010 Encounter for Autonomous Life in Oaxaca de Juárez, México, and is in some ways an adaptation of “Atmospheric Dialectics: A Critical Theory of Climate Change,” published in the Fall 2010 issue of Perspectives on Anarchist Theory.  A PDF of the presentation slides is available below.  Thanks goes to comrade L for the introduction and the Anarchist Bookfair Collective for the invitation to speak.

The talk is a little more than 22 minutes in length.
