by Larry Lohmann

Energy politics is all about labour politics. But it is also about struggles over commons, since the emergence of energy itself was a form of enclosure of commons.

What are the implications for activist strategy? asks this presentation at a 2013 skype seminar on "Energy-Informations Moving away from Peak Knowledge" held at the Museum Ludwig, Cologne on 30 November 2013. 

For more discussion, see The Corner House report, Energy, Work and Finance.

Other presentations and lectures at the virtual seminar addressed multiple aspects of the production, use and ways of knowing of fossil energy.
