/273/ Eco-Leninism? [UNLOCKED]


On the climate emergency.

We are specially unlocking this episode of our monthly Reading Club – the concluding episode of the first half of the 2022 syllabus (download it here). If you’d like full access to all of the Reading Club, go to patreon.com/bungacast

We discuss Andreas Malm’s Climate, Corona, Chronic Emergency and Adam Tooze’s review essay, “Ecological Leninism”. How convincing is Malm’s call for Soviet war communism as a model for responding to climate change? 

We also approach these readings in light of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, and the knock-on consequences for energy politics. And what should we make of Tooze’s  contrast of social democratic time-frames with the eco-Leninist one?
