Nicolas Graham, "Forces of Production, Climate Change and Canadian Fossil Capitalism" (Brill 2021)

As one of the most serious threats to life on our planet, the climate crisis is no longer something we can address in the future, we must act on it now.

In this first episode of our new themed series 'Survival by Degrees', Dr. Nicolas Graham describes the influence of fossil fuels in sustaining our unending quest for economic growth and profit. He also highlights the drastic changes needed along production lines to become eco-friendly. He talks about these in the context of his book Forces of Production, Climate Change, and Canadian Fossil Capitalism.

This episode is a part of a new special series by Brill, which focuses on Brill’s commitment to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Each episode is related to a specific SDG. This episode covers SDG 13: Climate Action.
