Yes, it is all about fetishism: A response to Daniel Cunha

Hornborg, Alf LU and Malm, Andreas LU (2016) In The Anthropocene Review 3(3). p.205-207
Abstract
Daniel Cunha misreads us as suggesting that climate change has been a conscious and deliberate strategy of a global elite. This was very clearly not our suggestion. He proposes that the Marxian concept of fetishism is applicable to anthropogenic climate change, apparently unaware of our recurrent use of precisely this concept in a number of publications over the past decades. We thus fundamentally agree with his position, but find his critique of our own interpretation of the Anthropocene unfair and misdirected.
