Lecture: Holly Jean Buck, “Architecture and design in the transition away from hydrocarbons”

What if the people seized the means of climate production? Holly Jean Buck charts a possible course to a liveable future. Climate restoration will require not just innovative technologies to remove carbon from the atmosphere, but social and economic transformation.

Holly Jean Buck is an assistant professor in the Dept. of Environment & Sustainability at the University at Buffalo in Buffalo, New York. She recently wrote a book about best and worst-case scenarios for deliberately intervening in the climate — and why we should re-imagine carbon removal technologies. It’s called After Geoengineering.
