By Alexander Barnstone | October 25, 2020

The Incompatibility of Neoliberal Rational and Climate Action Alexi Barnstone – Politics & Economics “Neoliberalism— the ideas, the institutions, the policies, the political rationality— has, along with its spawn, financialization, likely shaped recent world history as profoundly as any other nameable phenomenon in the same period”  – Wendy Brown   Like other word-altering…

What’s The UN Doing About Climate Change?

By Alana Smyth October 10, 2020

It wasn’t until recently, after the Cold War, that we saw a shift towards human rights, but even still, the UN is primarily focused on State-State relations. Now, to understand the vast array of UN bodies that work to support sustainable development and maintain ecological balance, one must know that the nature of the UN is like a spider-web: it is a deeply complex, yet delicate, system of which every stream is connected and reliant on one another.

A message from a supporter of the Green New Deal

What Does it Mean to be Climatized?

The climate crisis - with its wildfires, flash floods, mass extinction, and more - has caused both angst and excitement to permeate throughout society. Some of us suffer from eco-anxiety, fearing what pains a changed climate could catalyse. Others of us jostle with excitement, eager to see how addressing this crisis will fundamentally change our lives.

The colossus that is the climate crisis is paralysing. In the face of climate change's maddening complexity and gargantuan scale any picture of the future becomes muddled. We have become locked in unhelpful arguments that pit ecology against economy and elevate a fake realism above scientific reality.

THE CLIMATIZED AIMS TO BREAK THAT NARRATIVE BY ACCEPTING THE REALITY OF CLIMATE SCIENCE AS THE BASIS FOR ENVISAGING HOW POLITICS, CULTURE, AND PHILOSOPHY WILL RADICALLY CHANGE.

We aim to further the discussion about what needs doing by imagining the ramifications of our actions. What could the world look like if we take the science seriously? And what might the world descend into if we fail to? To cope with eco-anxiety, we must confront this future. Exposure is the route to calm. By entertaining how the world may change, for better or worse, The Climatized aims to further the narrative by giving people a glimpse at what could be.

The Climatized is a collection of opinion pieces from thinkers, activists, and students that argue how the world might be. Our work seeks to offer a fresh perspective using current scientific and academic research. We're not climate scientists, but we do our best to listen to them. From politics to science, culture to philosophy, The Climatized is a publication solely dedicated to providing readers with both the exciting and daunting potential realities that could manifest. To acclimatize to a new world we must find the nerve to confront that reality.

Engulf yourself in exploring what the world may be like. And find solace in imagining the world of tomorrow.
