I have no idea whether this research is totally useless, or of the highest quality. The information conveyed in this talk is at the highest, least-nuanced level: "Current approaches don't work, we should do something new, we know this because the current approach has a red arrow and the new approach has a green arrow". What the heck was the chart that he said was so great? If you pause when it's shown you'll see nothing revealing. I'm sure any uninitiated person watching this has no deeper understanding of what he's talking about.

you want to share the wealth and then talk about conservative measurements? this is socialism!
Tatiyana Kholomonova (4 days ago)
+Tiavor Kuroma , - )) - ,well, actually, - yes!), I prefer to believe that each person could save his/her/any personal identity even in case of all-over-the-world neuron equality will occur), but I also believe it wouldn't be a matter of instinct-basis afterall... As for ethic generalisation - it is very complicated problem indeed(( - 'cause me, for example, I'm not ready to sacrifice any national calture for that, - each of them is absolutely presious... I think there must be some other way - something over- (above-) national, humanity in general...
Tiavor Kuroma (4 days ago)
+Tatiyana Kholomonova why should everyone be equal anyway? everyone has personal preferences, ideas, dreams and thoughts. Equality = where everything outside the norm has to be eliminated. I would be glad if we could equalize our ethnic norms and values across the world, even if that means to loose some cultures. too bad that our leaders decide to invite an incompatible norm system to the western world.
Tatiyana Kholomonova (4 days ago)
i think any kind of talk about socialism or any other -ism - finally it would be always a philosophical conversation: WHAT does make people unequal? - the number of neural connections? - this probably could be easily fix by AI in some time... - but what would happen to our behaviour then? after we erase final unequality sign?.. - while evolution spent milliards of years to align our behaviour with our main instincts... including hierarchical... -?... - Should we care first about how to... to equalise... more-or-less our ethic norms... if this is ever possible...or, I could be wrong...and there's no need...

Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah BS This is a pretext for Global Government & Globalisation in which the likes of Facebook, Google, Apple and likes, will rule the world. Mankind will then be a slave labour to these overlords, with no respite, eat what they say, say what they say, live how they say, think how they want, and so on and so forth. Is Humankind that stupid to let it happen is a question that remains to be answered.
Alexander Hall (8 days ago)
Technology has taken away humanities self reliance, because the knowledge of how to do things manually has been forgotten. If you don’t know how to make flour, or sugar, or salt, or yeast, how could you dream of making bread. What part of the wheat makes flour? What does real wheat look like? Where do you mine salt? How do you grow yeast? See you’re doomed. What part a cow is sirloin? How do you make gun powder? How do you Smith steel? What metals are milled and mixed to make steel?If you don’t know those things you can’t get food. You can’t even make a knife. And you won’t learn because you have money. Money is the root of all evil. Smart people don’t need money. Rich people pay some mart people to do things for them. The more money you have the less need you have for intelligence. Medicine has destroyed our chances entirely because we no longer have the immune strength to fight pathogens without medicine. Wealth has made us lazy weak and stupid because we can pay others to solve our problems instead of solving them ourselves. Get rid of needless crap and be happy with basic necessities. That whole list is bullshit because #1 on the list is no poverty. Poverty is associated with financial attainment, aka money. Money only works if there are hired guns to enforce its use. Since you don’t know how to make your food from scratch, and you are too spoiled learn how, you need money. I don’t. GMO crops are plants that have seeds that do not sprout. Remember seedless watermelon? Seeds that sprout must be bought from MonSanto corporation. Growers must by new seed every year. In order to produce food. This is the roots of Supply side economics. The root of human slavery on earth. A corporation controls the food supply and we are forced to do as they please. They hire police and military to enforce there regime. They choose the politicians we vote for and pay the government paycheck. They have already disarmed the public by selling us inadequate weaponry to combat the military. Do you think a 9mm will beat a tank? If we revolt, in any way, they will deploy the national guard and repress us. So we are stuck. For the moment. Next time you think of Richie rich as smart. Think twice. He’d be dead if it weren’t for me. Xoxo

Let others lead small lives, but not you. Let others argue over small things, but not you. Let others cry over small hurts, but not you. Let others leave their future in someone else’s hands but not you. Success is not final, failure is not fatal: ıt is the courage to continue that counts. (Winston Churchill) Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly. (Robert F. Kennedy) The greater danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that is too low and we reach it. "So whoever does an atom's weight of good will see it, And whoever does an atom's weight of evil will see it. (The Noble Quran. Surah Al Zalzalah Verse 7-8)" "By time, Indeed, mankind is in loss, Except for those who have believed and done righteous deeds and advised each other to truth and advised each other to patience. (Surah Al Asr)" "Corruption has appeared throughout the land and sea by [reason of] what the hands of people have earned so He may let them taste part of [the consequence of] what they have done that perhaps they will return [to righteousness].The Noble Qur'an. Surah Ar Rum. Verse:41)" Listen to the voice of the Noble Quran. Maybe your life will be changed If God allows.

WOW Your models are amazing but you could do with a throat losenge. Climate change is real. Global warming is a myth. We are now in GSM. Our earth is cooling, not warming. Crop losses due to extreme weather are becomming the norm. The mass die off of wildlife globaly is hardly reported by the MSN. Fukashima has killed the Pacific ocean and only a matter of time before it kills us all. Planning for the future needs to be based on the real future of our world and the looks very cold and very radioactive. Fix Fukashima first and we might have a chance. MSM is blinkerd by the corrupt science it contiues to embrace has warped the greneral publics perception of real climate change. The extremes in our weather are not man made but due to our sun and the phase it has entered. Polution on the other hand is completly our doing. Be kind to those you love and prepare as best you can because the next few years are about to get rough.

The notion that this can all be planned and managed by governments is the most insipid inanity ever. As F.A. Hayek noted, “The curious task of economics is to demonstrate to men how little they really know about what they imagine they can design.” The incredible combination of arrogance and ignorance displayed by this TED Talk demonstrates that, at least in this case, economics has failed in its task.
Ordinary Speaker (10 days ago)
The problem with this is that it seemingly relieves us „normal“ people from our duty to change, by allowing us to think that the change must come from „above“. Each and every one still has to do all the small things which will amount to something in the big picture, like avoiding plastic, eating less meat, reducing electronic waste, speaking up for equality, vote after informing oneself, etc...
Ordinary Speaker (10 days ago)

Ordinary Speaker: then I'd ask why have a government at all? I elect so I don't have to think.
Shaun Cerborino (10 days ago)
Ordinary Speaker while I agree with the fact that the average citizen shouldn’t be lazy about it with a top down approach, you have to consider- we are currently aware of a lot of these things, Like waste, and we know there are resources to do it better. But instead because it’s not as convenient or a little extra money, we choose not to believe and already expect someone else to do it. We live in a capitalist consumer society, everything has to be changed through the ways people consume. Everything operates between the transaction of money. It’s the only way we can enact sustainable measures. You vote for policy, it’s enacted by your dollar. Government policies need to force companies that make what we consume sustainable. While at that, government policies can mandate there is requirement to teach civic engagement to normalize again that as a species we are social group based and need to work as a team. Also for people to put in the amount of effort each should be doing, they may need more personal time, which the poorest people often have the least amount of resources to participate in a sustainable consumer society or have the time to make habitual changes, because most of their time and energy is spent working. With policies set in place to both mediate inequality and policies to provide people with sustainable products it will no longer have to be that those who are well off have a better ability to do those things, because ultimately that still isn’t going to aid with climate action. Government policies don’t have to mean that the state demands to teach or enact the changes to a uniform agenda, it just means these things are required and as long as you meet them in a graded efficiency, do you.
Ordinary Speaker (10 days ago)
campusdyno I am not saying that the governments of this world should not change their policies, that is absolutely necessary. I just wanted to point out that the regular citizen mustn’t lean back telling himself that it is all in the government’s responsibility.

That people like this guys team, and many other unsung heroes who are working to try and save the earth and all that dwell therein is encouraging and inspiring. I'm doing my best as a Feijoa plant breeder to lift yields, increase nutrient and bio actives content in what often feels like a lone mission. Unfortunately many people with disposable income spent it on vanity projects like an overseas trip, or remodeling their kitchen, instead of helping solve real world problems - even in their local community. We all have choices every day, even the poorest of us, and each choice can place our actions on Johans final chart as part of that green arrow towards survival, or all those red ones towards death.

The average non-scientist has even less understanding of the science governing long-term sustainability; finding it easier to dismiss or criticize that which they fail to understand either through simple ignorance or willful ignorance because the impacts of poor long-term decision-making are not immediately perceptible. To date the public response to the warnings of natural scientists has been much the same as the Trojan response to Cassandra's dire prophecies. While prophecy can usually be dismissed as fallacy the same should not be said of scientific prediction that is repeatedly ratified.

How about: stopping population growth in the 3rd world, curbing the influence of multi-national corporations and entities, investing in nuclear energy, stopping 3rd world populations from migrating to the 1st world, and promote the growth of 1st world populations since they are the only ones that care about global health. This emasculated commie can shove his ideas deep inside himself.
MrSnivvel (9 days ago)
+Samar Tareen CO2 is not a pollutant by itself. By migration, I mean the quality of the people who are moving. Stopping low quality people, who pollute the environment (aka those from shitholes), from moving into areas where high quality people live will have greater positive effects on the environment. Hence the need for reducing their numbers by default. Your statement is fundamentally wrong since it's built on a faulty premise.
Samar Tareen (9 days ago)
I assume by the 1st world and 3rd world countries, you mean developed and developing countries respectively. The fact is, developed countries produce more pollution per capita than the developing countries, even with the massive population that the developing countries have. Migration has nothing to do with pollution given the previous statement. https://www.ucsusa.org/global-warming/science-and-impacts/science/each-countrys-share-of-co2.html
Nikola Demitri (10 days ago)
I’m not even going to look through these comments, not that I typically do anymore, anyway.. I’m quite certain that there will be plenty of hardline right wing ppl freaking out, calling climate change a hoax, calling this dude an “SJW” bc he dared to talk about equality, and calling him a social bc he dared talk about wealth redistribution. You can settle down, my fascy friends, he’s clearly still talking about economic growth within a capitalist paradigm. Speaking of capitalism, I wonder if the model accounted for the crises of capitalism we’re seeing right now: the rise of hardline, authoritarian far right, and yes, fascist leaders and movements, across the globe. By the sounds of it, the economic goals that the model seeks to hit wouldn’t be workable within the current neoliberal economic era, and I do think moving towards a social democrat state would improve economic conditions in such a way that would push back against this far right movement, but economics aren’t good enough to account for the problem. He mentioned education, and a lack of education definitely accounts for the problem to a large degree, but that’s only going to be especially effective on future generations, and much less effective on folks currently brainwashed by these movements. This is not a small problem, it’s an existential threat to life on this planet (eg - Bolsonaro’s privatization of the rainforest, Trump writ large, etc), and it absolutely has to be addressed/extinguished if a plan like this is ever going to work. Let’s just hope that can happen without serious war, maybe world war, maybe even nuclear war, taking place. I’d really like to know if this model accounts for all of these things, bc if it doesn’t, it seems rather incomplete.

The first link you show actually contradicts your point. The emissions caused by solar power are 300x lower compared to the emissions of fossil fuel. In fact, according to that article, the most emissions actually come from fossil fuel factories. As for wildlife deaths you refuse to mention how fossil fuel from semi trucks, factories, and other sources have caused EXTREME increases in asthma across the U.S. lowering certain life expectancies for people (and wildlife) with respiratory issues.While I disagree with your opinion on Solar Energy I 100% agree with Nuclear Fusion. Just by reading an article on it I'm excited to learn more and show others. While we all have differing opinions we can all agree on the ultimate goal, the reason we watched this video in the first place, and we can agree to set aside those differences to give future generations a safer, healthier and longer lasting planet to enjoy.

I would love to see this, or similar work, become mainstream knowledge. It would do so much to help pressure our policy makers to make good decisions if we pushed for their adherence.

This man makes a living promoting the idea that none of you should be allowed to make a living. How noble.

​+NietzscheanMan I don't support communism. Economic growth and innovation under capitalism seems to be one of the key things we need to combat climate change, as well as the other issues we face. That said, I have difficulty taking this response as more than a troll.

Communism kills, how much more bodies do you need to see on the pile before your willing blindness is satisfied.

NWO coming to a “community” near YOU!!! Funny how goal 13 looks like an Eye... get it?
Stephan Sockel (10 days ago)
I suggest you dig a bit around to find out what meaning the term "NWO" originally had when it first became popular (hint: Alex Jones). Then you might see that it had a totally different meaning. Today its just a buzzword devoid of any meaning and thus suitable to be used as a vehicle for any conspitracy theory you prefer.
