Recent Works by Martin W. Lewis
While GeoCurrents was suspended during the winter months, I focused most of my intellectual efforts on another abiding interest, environmental philosophy. My perspective here is best labeled “ecomodernism.” The nascent ecomodernist movement is based on deep concern for the preservation of nature coupled with equally deep support for broad-based economic development and technological progress, as can be seen in the recently published “Ecomodernist Manifesto.” Such ideas are anything but extreme, but within the environmental community itself they are regarded as reactionary if not heretical, and we ecomodernists are subjected to a good deal of abuse by Green stalwarts. At any rate, my essay on “Pragmatic Rewilding” has recently been published by the Breakthrough Institute, the primary eco-modernist think tank, which is based in Oakland, California.
I will be attending the annual Breakthrough conference from Sunday through Tuesday of next week. When it is over, I will begin putting up a series of GeoCurrents posts on the recent election in Turkey.
