Wanted: Technology To Save Our Species - 2

AMEC conferees
The problem with this notion of "technology to save us" is that it is the technology of Petroleum Civilization that has caused our problems.

Petroleum addiction is the fundamental source of problems which have now put civilization on suicide watch (Civilization Is Now On Suicide Watch, 2, 3, 4).

This is a report from AMEG:
AMEG’s Declaration

Governments must get a grip on a situation which IPCC, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, has ignored. A strategy of mitigation and adaptation is doomed to fail. It will be impossible to adapt to the worst consequences of global warming, as IPCC suggests.

The Arctic must be cooled, ASAP, to prevent the sea ice disappearing with disastrous global consequences. Rapid warming in the Arctic, as sea ice retreats, has already disrupted the jet stream. The resulting escalation in weather extremes is causing a food crisis which must be addressed before the existing conflicts in Asia and Africa spread more widely.

Dangerous global warming and ocean acidification must be prevented by reducing the level of CO2 in the atmosphere, especially by improved agricultural practice, thereby addressing the food crisis at the same time.

This is an unprecedented opportunity for international collaboration for common purpose.
