Based on intensive fieldwork with local groups in Oaxaca Mexico in 2015, Alexander Dunlap, University of Oslo, in this book demonstrates the complications and problems that emerge with the current regime of ‘sustainable development’ and wind energy projects in Mexico. Wind energy development, in Mexico and most countries, fall into a ‘roll out’ neoliberal strategy that is justified by climate change mitigation programs that are continuing a process of land and wind resources grabbing for profit. The result has been an exaggeration of pre-existing problems in communities around land, income-inequality, local politics and, contrary to public relations stories, is has been devastating to traditional livelihoods and socio-ecological relationships.
