Radical Meteorology

Nabil Ahmed

Radical meteorology refers to an entanglement of contemporary state, institutional, and environmental violence, where the earth is an agent for political transformation. As severe weather events and natural disasters reorganize space in ways similar to those by which conflict transforms environments, the scientific and political problem arises of discerning between violence caused by humans and nature. Radical meteorology is a method for reading typologies of spatial violence where nature itself is incriminated. It seeks to locate and problematize such a site of violence in order to shape understandings of its political possibilities.
