Surviving the Anthropocene: climate change and humanity’s response with Dominic Boyer

We are living in the Human Age and climate change presents an existential threat to humanity. For the commodities sector, it is the key driver of opportunities and challenge, from selecting strategies to pricing future risks. Growing awareness of the impacts is profoundly affecting society and companies alike. But what is climate change and to what future climate are we headed? Is humanity capable of addressing it whether through mitigation and adaptation? And how can the best intentions of energy-transition be disruptive as they change the societies within which they are placed? In this episode, we are delighted to welcome Dominic Boyer, Professor of Cultural Anthropology, whose focus is on climate change and societal responses. Dominic is also the author of Energopolitics and co-host of the Cultures of Energy.
