Geo-Engineering and Consequences of Global Warming
Slavoj Zizek   Apr 21, 2011   Fora TV  

On April 4th, 2011 philosopher Slavoj Zizek spoke in New York City on “The Situation Is Catastrophic, but Not Serious.” This is our attitude towards the ongoing crisis: we are aware of the looming (ecological, social) catastrophes, but we somehow don’t take them seriously.
