Green revolution is a green technology one

It's too easy for the climate change skeptics to paint the environmentally conscious as the back to the caves types. Sadly this gets some traction with those with shallow perceptions, but a bit of thought tells you that it is rubbish. :::[Wired 14:05: The Next Green Revolution]

With climate change hard upon us, a new green movement is taking shape, one that embraces environmentalism's concerns but rejects its worn-out answers. Technology can be a font of endlessly creative solutions. Business can be a vehicle for change. Prosperity can help us build the kind of world we want. Scientific exploration, innovative design, and cultural evolution are the most powerful tools we have. Entrepreneurial zeal and market forces, guided by sustainable policies, can propel the world into a bright green future.

During the holidays we probabaly spend more time thinking about our
family and future. I just finished watching the movie "An Inconvenient
Truth", please send this link to everyone you know. Watch the movie,
share it with your children, friends, tell everyone you know.

Humanity is sitting on a ticking time bomb. If the vast majority of the
world's scientists are right, we have just ten years to avert a major
catastrophe that could send our entire planet into a tail-spin of epic
destruction involving extreme weather, floods, droughts, epidemics and
killer heat waves beyond anything we have ever experienced.

We can all make a difference,

Don't ever doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed people can
make a difference. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.

Forward this email, its not a chain letter, you won't receive good luck
or bad luck, but you could make a difference!

Good stuff, it's all about convincing the public that Green thinking is not about being a Luddite, someone who fears technology...but rather innovative research & usable technologies that create secure jobs & an exciting world to live in...& don't break the bank.

Agree completely. Technology is an essential part of reducing the extent of and adapting to further climate change. An integrated approach is what’s required.

Nice blog, BTW. I’ll add to my blogroll. Drop over to mine sometime ( Mostly climate change related at the moment
