Short Description: 
Author Timothy Mitchell talks about the history of oil-based forms of modern democratic politics
Host Lisa Loving speaks with Timothy Mitchell about his new book "Carbon Democracy: Political Power in the Age of Oil." How does oil undermine democracy, and our ability to address the environmental crisis? In "Carbon Democracy" Timothy Mitchell argues that no nation escapes the political consequences of our collective dependence on oil. It shapes the body politic both in regions such as the Middle East, which rely upon revenues from oil production, and in the places that have the greatest demand for energy. In the twenty-first century, the oil-based forms of modern democratic politics have become unsustainable.
