Feminist Dialogues on the Climate Crisis: Patriarchal Anthropocene, Petro-masculinities and Industrial Masculinities

This article critically analyzes how far-right political male elites persistently deny climate change, a political-discursive strategy of maintaining the status quo, which has historically benefited them. Making use of concepts such as «petro-masculinity» and «industrial masculinities», and introducing the concept of «patriarchal Anthropocene», this paper argues that climate denial is inextricably linked to these leaders’ masculine identities. Thus, these discourses contribute to the (re)production of authoritarian and ecologically irresponsible masculinities.
