Abstract

FOLADORI, Guillermo  and  TOMMASINO, Humberto. The technical solution to environmental problems. Rev. katálysis [online]. 2012, vol.15, n.1, pp. 79-83. ISSN 1414-4980.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1414-49802012000100008.

This essay argues that the environmental discussion has been reduced to a technical question. This implies envisioning technology as neutral and does not consider social relations. It concludes by indicating limits to resolving the great environmental problems implied by capitalist relations.

Keywords : Environment; Sustainability; Nature.
