About

Roman Brinzanik and Tobias Hülswitt speak to philosophers and artists about the relationship of mankind, nature and technology and the evolution and function of stories about the downfall and the saving of our earth.

The era of great stories is apparently over. In reality, however, future scenarios about the scarcity of resources and climate change link to form the greatest catastrophe story of our times – a story that relies on empirical data and natural science models.
Together with Paul J. Crutzen, the Nobel Prize winner for atmospheric chemistry, Stefan Rahmstorf, an employee at the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and other leading researchers, the physicist Roman Brinzanik and the writer Tobias Hülswitt discuss these threats and novel solutions from geo-engineering, synthetic biology and energy research.
