I was one of the original authors (along with Professor Peter Fine of Univ. of Wyoming — Graphic Design) that coined the term Ecomodernism in 2010. Our paper has no connection to the above article/manifesto and differs completely on many key points made above by the author. (You can read the original academic article here.)

In our article, we did not advocate for nuclear energy expansion and still feel nuclear is an unsustainable energy resource due to the danger of disposing its waste.

We feel Ecomodernism should be defined by what we wrote in the original article, not by the language by the manifesto or this Medium article above.
