Abstract

We reframe climate crises as Mother Earth’s fevers and revolts against an anthropocentric, patriarchal, and racial colonial order of domination and extraction by undertaking a decolonial feminist, anti-capitalist complexity science, and Indigenous re-examination of how the scientific enterprise engages with climate politics. As the patriarchal state-centric technocracy and imperial mode of living that created the crisis perpetuates itself through “green” climate-disaster capitalism, we challenge “green” techno-scientific solution-driven governance and analyze climate upheavals as a portal for decolonial solidarity with Earth’s revolt – an alignment with the multispecies struggle for the liberation of all human and nonhuman relatives, waters, and lands.
