The Anthropocene and Techno-Utopia

by Alex Smith, originally published by Radio Ecoshock
anthropFrom Berlin, top enviro journalist Christian Schwagerl on his controversial new book The Anthropocene: The Human Era and How It Shapes Our Planet. Then two eco-feminists, Charlene Spratnak and Susan Griffin on “Techno-Utopianism and the Fate of the Earth.”

Are humans changing the planet so much that we have entered a new geological age? They call it the anthropocene, and we don’t know if that’s good. Our first guest from Berlin, Christian Schwagerl, literally wrote the book on it.

Then we’ll hear a different view from two eco-feminists, American Green Party founder Charlene Spretnak, and author Susan Griffin.

First, to Berlin. Are we ready for technature, and human creation of new life forms?
