States of denial. A tribute to Dr Haydn Washington.
In this interview Dr Haydn Washington muses on what denial means.
We're sad to hear that Haydn died this week and, in his honour, we post this recording from 2013.
It's interesting and sobering to reflect on how the world looks now, nearly ten years later.
Dr Jane O'Sullivan provides a few eloquent words for Haydn:
"Haydn was a prolific and passionate writer and speaker on sustainability, degrowth, the need for population stabilisation and denialism against both climate and population realities. He wrote or edited many books. He was active in CASSE and the Ecological Economics community.
And he was a generous, humble colleague who supported others to raise their voices. I worked with him over the past couple of months to get a paper published on population denialism.
Thankfully it was published a week before he died. Here is the link to the paper (it is open access): https://www.mdpi.com/2673-4060/3/4/57
