“philosophy and the event”, alain badiou with fabien tarby


Let’s first note, as regards the possibility of global warming, that no proof has been established. Environmentalist propaganda compresses predictions of development that bear on half a century and makes out as though there will be a catastrophe within a year. If sea levels rise as a result of global warming, this is not going to happen from one day to the next. There will be a constant and continual effort to counter this effect in order to adapt to the changes. We can, doubtlessly, expect populations to be displaced. This has happened many times before and humanity has endured things infinitely more serious and radical than those which are being forecast now. It underwent an ice age and managed to survive with the means at its disposal – which were not at all those we have today.
