Event description

Description

The presentation explores the political securitization of climate (and climate change) in relation to the science/policy consultations following the 1970s climate/food shocks (eg CIA climate report 1974) and the series of international conferences on climatic change during the early 1980s. These events introduced ‘the future of climate’ as a key variable in economic planning and policy regulations of global atmospheric resources. Anticipatory tools such as climate modelling, mid-range forecasting, integrated assessment and scenario-building framed climate as a long-term socio-political hazard, resulting in the quasi-normative assumption of climatic (neo)determinism and environmental vulnerability that continue to shape current climate policies and public imaginaries of climatic futures.
