Resistance Radio - Guest: Andreas Roos

Andreas Roos is a researcher and activist working to understand, expose, and challenge the environmentally destructive logic of industrial technologies. He recently defended his dissertation in the field of Human Ecology at Lund University (Sweden) entitled Renewing power: Including global asymmetries within the system boundaries of solar photovoltaic technology. The book deals with the mismatch between the conventional expectations of solar technology and the not so promising ecological reality of massively increasing the world’s solar capacity. Andreas has also done research on the promises and perils of information and communications technologies and compared energy flows in industrial vs. non-industrial food systems.
