This is a discussion of how climate change encourages us to think of historical time not in terms of the patient unfolding of chronology but as interruption. Such interruptions do not come from nowhere, but are rather eruptions of unresolved material from the past. Using Jacques Derrida's concept of "hauntology" I analyse Christos Tsiolkas's novel "Dead Europe" to develop ways in which we might be able to re-think historical time under the threat of climate change.
