Forest : the best carbon sequestering system in the worldhttps://www.washingtonpost.com/news/energy-environment/wp/2016/02/11/the-solution-to-climate-change-that-has-nothing-to-do-with-cars-or-coal/?tid=a_inl
Tech-based solutions limited by framing assumptions, such as:
solution by novel technology
no change in car and airplane travel
no change in consumer behavior
no change in commodity-based markets
Engineering research implies
(1) new technology rather than non-technological considerations;
(2) the solutions have to be “new”
(3) Solutionism : the drive to find a “solution” to a "problem" rather than
determine and achieve socio-economic-symbolic conditions
under which the problem does not even arise.
All good approaches are welcome. But how shall we tackle things in proportion to their strategic importance from cosmopolitical, ecological-economic, biosocial, historic as well as poetic-symbolic perspectives?
