3: Holly Jean Buck

Season 1, Ep. 3

Holly Jean Buck, postdoctoral fellow at UCLA, joined Andrea to discuss her book, After Geoengineering: Climate Tragedy, Repair, and Restoration, and her paper "Geoengineering: Re-making Climate for Profit or Humanitarian Intervention?"


Holly is a postdoctoral research fellow at UCLA’s Institute of the Environment and Sustainability. She’s interested in how communities can be involved in the design of emerging environmental technologies. She works at the interface of environmental sociology, international development, and science and technology studies. Her diverse research interests include agroecology and carbon farming, new energy technologies, artificial intelligence, and the restoration of California’s Salton Sea.


(We originally recorded this in 2018, before her book was out. It's now out from Verso Press.)
