Tidings from Hazel Kahan
This month Hazel welcomes back to Tidings and WPKN, the social thinker, writer and speaker, Dougald Hine, who is originally from the northeast of England but now lives in Central Sweden. Dougald will talk about his new book At Work in the Ruins, Finding Our Place in the Time of Science, Climate Change, Pandemics and All the Other Emergencies, published by Chelsea Green in London and Vermont. The book examines the vectors of industrial modernity that have shaped us and produced “the trouble we are in,” how the encounter with climate change is calling our societies in question, including science itself and the assumption of continued growth including what he calls, the fantasy of “green growth” and the “strange dependency” that now informs modern society. He ends the book with some ideas for living “among the ruins” and what might be worth doing and saving “in a time of endings” of the world as we know it.
