On Klaus' contribution
Earth Operations Management
Schmitt and Wallner imagine a future where the invention of Earth Operations Management (EOM) was the answer to a successful fight against climate change. EOM is a synthesis of natural science, humanities, economics and management theory with a goal to replace destructive economic systems with new and sustainable methodologies that take the values of ecosystems into account. In their paper, Schmitt and Wallner look back at the origins of the new discipline in the early 2020s.
Klaus Wallner and Markus Schmitt present their work on day 1 of T2051MCC. On this day it is assumed that global heating has surpassed 2°C.
