About This File
This ‘critique’ is really just an impact turn to warming/natural disaster scenarios. The basic argument can be laid out like this:
- Green capitalism is used to overshadow our inherent disconnection from nature
- Environmental catastrophe is a management strategy that uses potential crises to reassert elite control
- Capitalist growth spurs environmental catastrophe in the first place
- Environmental catastrophe spurs community collaboration contrary to capitalist ethics
The one card shell includes all of those arguments and makes an implicit epistemology argument that the aff’s scenarios are a never ending form of apocalyptic rhetoric with no end point or solution. The defensive argument you would want on the advantage is warming doesn’t case extinction, but make sure you selectively choose defense that doesn’t dispute climate science, just the terminal scenarios, otherwise you take out the link to natural disasters.
It’s a small file, but this K can be standalone, supplement a cap k, jives well with dedev, and can be expanded with a larger environmental security k.
