Abundance is our future?

Post by Dreamweaver » 02 Jul 2018, 20:41

Onstage at TED2012, Peter Diamandis makes a case for optimism -- that we'll invent, innovate and create ways to solve the challenges that loom over us. "I’m not saying we don’t have our set of problems; we surely do. But ultimately, we knock them down.”

I'm all for optimism coupled with a drive to build a better future.

Saw some guys on TV producing salad greens in a shed under lights on the sunshine coast.
700kg per week fully automated, - if anything goes wrong they get a text message.
They go there once a week (to harvest i presume).

What we seem to have at the moment is complacency.

Nothing can be fixed if it's not first recognised.
