Le paradoxe environnemental: Dans un contexte de changement by Jean-Luc Roques

By Jean-Luc Roques

Les principes de prévention, de précaution, ou de participation, le développement sturdy, les énergies renouvelables, le tri sélectif, los angeles taxe carbone, l’éco-innovation, voilà, parmi tant d’autres, quelques terminologies qui devraient nous rassurer. Elles nous permettront, sans nul doute, de résoudre, assez rapidement, bien des problèmes environnementaux actuels. Tout ira bientôt pour le mieux dans le meilleur des mondes. Or, que constatons-nous ? Nous restons toujours immergés dans un univers de catastrophes, de pollutions d’origines industrielles, agricoles ou urbaines, de déchets de toutes sortes. Les cataclysmes font de plus en plus de dégâts sur l. a. nature et sur les hommes. Plus encore, les zones humides s’assèchent, les déserts gagnent du terrain, les mers intérieures se vident, les récifs coralliens agonisent. Tout cela ne paraît donc pas très rassurant. Le constat de départ est donc assez paradoxal. Pourquoi, malgré les catastrophes environnementales et humaines qui se multiplient et auxquelles tout le monde peut être confronté, rien ne semble se modifier ou si peu ? Pourquoi, dans un monde où les appels aux changements sont incessants, les attitudes et les comportements relatifs à l’environnement et à ses problèmes ne changent-ils pas véritablement ?  Pourquoi nos modes de vie ne se modifient-ils pas ?

C’est à ces diverses questions que ce livre se suggest de répondre en proposant deux hypothèses originales afin de mettre en évidence les blocages et expliquer cette state of affairs paradoxale. L’une renverra aux fondements de los angeles modernité, à ses formes de rationalité, mais aussi à ses mythes. L’autre portera sur les phénomènes de reterritorialisation et aux obstructions qui en découlent.
