9 May: Indispensable Radicalities - unerlässliche Radikalitäten

Lecture by Daniel Tanuro, Agricultural Engineer and Eco-socialist Activist, on Thursday, 9 May at 19:30 at the UniPark Salzburg, as part of the lecture series "Global Challenges - Answers to Climate Change".

To have a 50% chance of not exceeding 1.5°C of global warming, net global CO2 emissions must decrease by 58% between 2020 and 2030, be cancelled in 2050 and then become negative. This objective requires extremely radical ecological measures, which cannot be achieved unless they are accompanied by extremely radical social upheaval.
But how can we move forward?  

Daniel Tanuro ist Agraringenieur und ökosozialistischer Aktivist. In seinem 2013 erschienenen Buch “Green capitalism: Why it can’t work” legt Tanuro da, warum eine wirkungsvolle Bekämpfung ohne einen radikalen sozialen und wirtschaftlichen Wandel nicht gelingen kann. Er argumentiert, dass grüne Maßnahmen wie Ökosteuern, Emissionshandel und die Kommodifizierung von natürlichen Ressourcen das Hauptproblem des kapitalistischen Profitstrebens nicht bekämpfen und daher eine gesamtgesellschaftliche Transformation vollzogen werden muss.
