Waste Waters

Waste Waters | Visualizing Fukushima | Scoop.it

In the decades after World War II, the U.S. government and licensees dumped tens of thousands of containers of radioactive waste at dozens of dump sites in the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, often sealed in stainless steel drums that were expected to eventually deteriorate. A Journal review of federal and other records shows there are questions about the exact locations, contents and condition of waste containers, along with concerns about potential threats to the environment and public health if seafood gets contaminated. Federal officials say that testing done over the years hasn’t produced evidence of harm.

Architecture in the Anthropocene: Encounters Among Design, Deep Time, Science and Philosophy

Matters of Cosmopolitics: On the Provocations of Gaïa
Isabelle Stengers in Conversation with Heather Davis and Etienne Turpin
Isabelle Stengers’ varied research interests, compelling publications, and breadth of influence make her one of the most important writers of our time. Her early training as a chemist and her collaboration with physicist Ilya Prigogine allowed her to productively and critically intervene in the discourses and practices of scientific knowledge production. She has published extensively in collaboration with other writers on topics including psychoanalysis, politics, feminism, philosophy, and science, although her primary concern remains the relation of the latter two. Attending to the specificity of laboratory work, Stengers considers this model of knowledge production to develop what she calls an “ecology of practices,” thereby situating scientific knowledge as specific, local, and evolving, while extending the idea of practices and practitioners to other fields through her notion of “cosmopolitics.” “One aspect of the cosmopolitical proposal,” according to Stengers, “is thus to accentuate our own rather frightening particularity among the people of the world with whom we have to compromise.”[1] The strength and breadth of Stengers’ force as a writer comes from her training as a philosopher, particularly her careful explications of the thought of Alfred North Whitehead and William James. From these early pragmatists, she has retained efficacy as a central, guiding political principle, against more popular notions of choice or free will.

Antropoceno, Capitaloceno, Cthulhuceno: o que caracteriza uma nova época?

Antropoceno, Capitaloceno, Cthulhuceno: o que caracteriza uma nova época? | Visualizing Fukushima | Scoop.it

Os impactos das ações humanas sobre o planeta nos últimos 200 anos têm sido tão profundos que podem justificar a definição de nova época para a Terra, o Antropoceno. No último dia 17 de outubro, a Comissão Internacional sobre Estratigrafia (ICS, na sigla inglês) reuniu-se em Berlim para dar continuidade às discussões sobre a formalização dessa nova época terrena, cuja decisão final será votada somente em 2016. A despeito dos processos burocráticos, o termo já foi informalmente assimilado por filósofos, arqueólogos, historiadores, ambientalistas e cientistas do clima e, nesse meio, o debate segue, para além da reunião de evidências físicas, no sentido de compreender sua utilidade: estamos prontos para assumir a época dos humanos?

Fukushima desde las ventanas del Manifiesto Cyborg

‘En este momento, el realismo es quizás el medio menos adecuado para comprender y retratar las increíbles realidades de nuestras existencias. Quien crea fantasías, ya sea utilizando losantiguos arquetipos del mito y la leyenda o los modernos de la ciencia y la tecnología, puedenestar hablando tan seriamente como cualquier sociólogo, y de manera mucho más directa, sobrecómo se vive la vida humana, cómo se podría y cómo se debería vivir’.

Ursula K. Leguin

Takashi Murakami Explains How Fukushima Inspired His New Children's Movie | Visualizing Fukushima | Scoop.it

When the 2011 earthquake and tsunami disaster happened, and especially when the Fukushima nuclear power plant explosion happened, before that I already had ideas for a film and this story, but because of that happening I was able to expand and deepen the story that I already had in my mind, and that ultimately came out to about a 90-minute, feature-length story.

Narrating the Anthropocene

Recently, paired events – a lecture by geographer Kathryn Yusoff and a colorful evening “slam” – took place, organized by the fledgling interdisciplinary group, Environmental Humanities Switzerland. Both explored the potential and limits of the “Anthropocene” thesis: the idea that we’ve entered a new geologic epoch wherein humans are actively altering Earth systems.

The Economics of Nuclear

The Economics of Nuclear | Visualizing Fukushima | Scoop.it

Amory Lovins has dedicated his 40 years of energy policy experience to the idea that our energy future does not have to look like our energy past. A preeminent environmental thinker and co-founder of the Rocky Mountain Institute, Amory Lovins is the author of the 2011 book Reinventing Fire. Heralded by President Bill Clinton as, “A wise, detailed, and comprehensive blue print,” Reinventing Fire explores pre-existing market based solutions in transportation, building, industry, and electricity that don’t rely on energy from fossil fuels or nuclear and yet save industry trillions of dollars. A friend of Fairewinds, Lovins visited Vermont two years ago and he and Fairewinds’ Chief Engineer Arnie Gundersen spoke on video about a global energy future without nuclear power by growing renewables and clean energy.
