I’ve been wondering why so many big tech companies are backing climate change solutions, and now I know:
The climate change crisis is real, finding quick and affordable solutions is an urgency, and AI can play a major role. …AI will be a major enabler at the core of climate change technologies.Mark Minevich
That quote comes from an article in Forbes, AI Champions Driving New Industry Solutions For Climate Change. The article details ways Artificial Intelligence can help, and it does seem rational. The question is, what will Big Tech charge for licensing and use of the technologies? You know me: I would make it free to everybody in the world. I know, I know, that’s a bad idea, because blah blah blah. But I would force it to be a good idea. Why do I get to be the one in control of the money? Because I said so, that’s why.
There was a short article I liked very much in the Utah Desert News: Why is the debate over climate change so contentious?
The author, Steve Glaser, suggests we try listening to each other and thinking about what each other has to say. How about that?
The actual disagreement we’re having is which we fear more: the effects of climate change, or the actions others would take in the name of climate change. …Let’s speak plainly about our concerns. Let’s seek solutions rather than hide behind our fears. Let’s leave spaces to ponder other’s opinions, invite questions, and most importantly, work toward climate solutions that value our planet, and our lives.Steve Glaser
I haven’t forgotten my hero, Greta Thunberg. What’s she up to? Well, she turned 18 on January 3, 2021. CNN has an article about it, with a short video from her, and a Tweet of her celebrating, wearing a Flat Mars Society t-shirt.
Happy birthday, Greta! And thank you!
A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Write about bees and birthdays. Oh, yeah, in case you didn’t know, Utah is The Beehive State.
