Jesse Velay-Vitow joins Ash Milton to discuss how we can reconcile industrial disruption, ecological stewardship, and the destiny of our species. Topics include how people have terraformed the Earth for millennia, whether our society’s risk tolerance is unacceptably low, and why we need a strong conception of telos to discipline humanity’s world-making power. Jesse recently wrote about the consequences of inevitable climate change for civilization.
