Check out his videos. He's got some things developed, but sadly open source hardware seems harder to get an online community excited about than open source software.

His original TED talk had me all fired up about the social justice potential for the third world - but it's a long, slow process, even with some of the endorsements below.

Your project is amazing. Thrilling, actually… It’s people like you who really give me hope for the future.

Interesting ideas. I don’t know of anything quite like it.

Dr James Hansen recommends breeder reactors that convert nuclear 'waste' into 1000 years of clean energy for America, and can charge all our light vehicles and generate "Blue Crude" for heavy vehicles.

That’s interesting and makes a lot of sense.

So environmental biologists are starting to recommend that we move certain species to more fitting climates. I don't want to trivialise the threats to certain agricultural and ecosystem areas. Climate change is a beast that has required stuff to move over around 800 years in the past ice-age cycle, but our anthropogenic climate change demands they move in just 100 years! What's worse, our towns, roads, but mostly our agriculture gets in the way. But there are environmental groups looking at the feasibility of moving species to new areas and transplanting and growing out new ecosystems in those more viable areas, like sinking old ships as artificial reefs but then helping them along with threatened Great Barrier Reef corals, etc.

Biodiversity crisis is about to put humanity at risk, UN scientists to warn

I guess parts 1-4 of "When will the mass dieoff begin?" did not give us any answers. LOL

The irony after spending 20 or 40 years contemplating this is that when it really does begin, for humans anyway, this site will no longer exist.

All the more reason to Park it, Fence it, Ark it, Move it, Sign it, Monetise it, Patrol it and Terminate it!

I have said it many times. Scientists have calculated that we have topsoil left for approximately 40 years. Aquifers are also going to be empty approximately in the same time scale. So overall I think it is safe to say that things are going to get very ugly approximately 30 years from now. Simple as that.

Don't design your life around believing in this narrative.

I don't disagree with the premise but between now and then are many years still of abundance and it is a complete waste to focus on this.

A parable I have shared in the past. The magnolia tree leaning over on the edge of a cliff is adding biomass every year, the roots embedded in the rocks will give way at any moment. Tenuous at best and yet every spring in the meantime the tree bursts with a riot of blossoms.

Such is the fate of Kudzu Ape in the 21st century.

If we could all just learn to be like the magnolia.

Instead we both deny the truth of our inevitable fate at the same time as hysterically chasing empty and meaningless pleasures.

Our species is worst than yeast!

There is very little “information” on the internet. Once you start trying to look up some specifics you find the depth of ignorance. I recommend reading, especially older books, of different times. It gives a different perspective, not of the echo chamber.

A good place to start is with HG Wells “Outline of History”. I think it’s even available as a free download.
