Abstract

[This brief analysis reconsiders the cultural, ideological and practical dimensions of spatiality at the interface of the world environment and globalization, especially as they are being reimagined through global biocomplexity modelling as the key site for globalist intervention. By fusing environmentalism with globalism, many scientific experts and some major governmental and non-governmental science agencies are attempting to generate the theories and practices needed for managing ‘the environment’ on a local, regional, national and global level of operation. In their models, the prevailing procedures of ecomanagerialism1 are being reformatted through new ‘world watching’ technics in data-driven biocomplexity models.2 Such turns in basic scientific work deserve careful review, and this chapter begins that investigation of planetary ecomanagerialism as a mode of globalization.]
