Abstract

This article traces the ways in which climate change, conceived as a socio-material process, works to produce new objects and subjects of political intervention. Building on the idea that climate change has become constructed as a particular kind of population-induced energy crisis, the article explores how the social problematic provoked by anthropogenic climate change relates to “biopolitical” understandings of the relationship between the state and the individual. In doing so, it aims to make a contribution to the broader discussions within this special collection regarding the transformative politics indexed by the term “energopower” and its co-articulation with the more familiar concept of “biopower.”
