1952. Quote re from Climate Leviathan

Powerful book saying that we do not have any solution to climate change and that the elites are likely to organize it into a Hobbesian bureaucracy. . The challenge for us is what to do about it

Another critical stream of recent literature takes a darker view of the prospects for social and ecological transformation. In marked contrast to Klein, philosopher Dale Jamieson argues that the window of time for Blockadia-driven changes has already closed; the world is firmly committed to climate change. If we are to generate an ethical response to the Anthropocene, he claims, we must learn to accept where we stand historically, which is at the end of a period when climate science generated insights that could have led to dramatic political-economic change, but did not.”
