#Europe’s transition to a circular economy—where waste resources return into the product cycle through #recycling and reuse—is neither an environmental fairytale nor a lonely Brussels policy paper. It is a dynamic strategy to retool Europe’s #economy. bostonreview.net/science-nat…

Here some more on nuclear. Balanced, technology agnostic, neutral-stanced, I would dare to say almost ‘objective’ article as this topic apparently requires. My take: let’s move on and put the money into something that solves problems instead of creating them
I wrote an analysis on nuclear energy for @BostonReview. The conversation on nuclear should consider what sorts of energy will be best suited to an increasingly unstable Anthropocene & how our energy choices lock in what sorts of societies we can build bostonreview.net/science-nat…

“It was Paul Celan, most of all, who proved that to write #poetry after Auschwitz is not only possible but necessary: that it must take on the weight of modern catastrophe and register something like shame for the fact of its existence.” ICYMI: bostonreview.net/arts-societ…

“Listings for work in cyberespionage are posted so regularly that they appear banal, advertising a model of hip, high-tech affluence that is desirable yet unexceptional.” In Tel Aviv, military-grade spying on civilians has become just another office job.bostonreview.net/war-securit…
