1 The response
1.1 Potential social formations
The book Climate Leviathan gives a nice exposition of four types of climate crisis response, if you class them on the axes of capitalist vs non-capitalist and pro- or anti- planetary sovereignty. (I don't fully grasp the idea of planetary sovereignty just yet).
|Planetary sovereignty||Anti-planetary sovereignty|
|Capitalist||Climate Leviathan||Climate Behemoth|
|Non-capitalist||Climate Mao||Climate X|
Just going off what I remember from listening to Novara's interview with Geoff Mann, my very very crude recollection at the moment:
1.1.1 Climate Leviathan
Ultimately ineffectual. Not something we want. Essentially the ineffectiveness of COP writ large.
1.1.2 Climate Behemoth
Something like Trump, who not only doesn't give a shit about the climate, but also wouldn't want to work with other countries on it anyway.
1.1.3 Climate Mao
If a response could be centrally planned by a non-capitalist nation state.
1.1.4 Climate X
Pockets of climate activism at various scales, e.g. city level, etc.
