Artificial Intelligence, Cloud Computing Keys To Climate Change Challenges

Grazed from CleanTechnica. Author: Steve Hanley.

If the human race has any hope of meeting the challenge of climate change, it will need to think its way out of the conundrum it has wrought. People need meaningful work to do. Business owners need profits to stay in business. Commerce takes energy — lots of it — to keep chugging ahead. But work and commerce generate effluent that poisons the land, the air, and the seas. The more successful mankind gets at lifting itself out of ignorance and poverty, the more it sows the seeds of its own destruction.

A few lucky souls can decamp to new colonies on Mars to escape the ravages of climate change, but that won’t help the billions left behind. And what’s to say our species won’t pollute neighboring planets the way it did the earth? Maybe what is needed is more collaboration and more innovation...

Fortunately there is a way that can happen, thanks to computational tools that weren’t available just a few short years ago...
