Easily one of the best lectures I have ever watched.

This video is PACKED with opportunities and ideas waiting to be turned into businesses.

The video is not a short one (1h45m) but every minute is well worth it.

Every problem is an opportunity and climate change is one HUGE opportunity.

Loved it. Predicting the future is hard, but especially around distributed energy production, so much is already happening.

Thanks for sharing!

It's a bit long, but thank Youtube for allowing double speed watching!

Same old goofy socialist nonsense, from someone who's never worked a real job in their life, only gotten pay & grants for their persuasive political mouths.

"The world's ending, economy-we-environment-economy-we-economy-environment-we-economy, I'm the messiah who can fix it if you'll all just listen, buy my book/DVD, blah blah."

Wow, thats not what I got from it at all.

Do you not think that branding it as socialism is too far?

He is talking about the issues we are going to face and the new opportunities that technology is going to bring through, not for a socialist society but for those that are willing to work for it.

How far in did you get?

70% on 2x. Just a typical case of a guy who's head is in the clouds, but gets followers because he's such a good speaker. It wasn't packed with business ideas at all, he just taken existing new tech words and fashioned them into his clever sounding sentences about how "we" should transform the future.

Note how his claim to fame is advising Merkel. That says it all. If he was advising Musk or Bezos, or was running his own IoT or solar businesses, that's different.

This guy is action-faking writ large. If you have a look at his track record, he's actually just a greenie leftist trying to continue shiving the anti-human-progress cause into our lives another way (as always, disguised as human progress).

The barometer is always "is this guy, who talks about energy, anti-nuclear?". Unless he's announcing his new proven patented large-scale & efficient energy storage tech, he's just a mouth.

"40% of the world is worst off after the industrial age"
"It [the industrial age] has been a detriment to the other half of the human race"

How?

Very few people today live in worst conditions than the 1700's. Pick any country and show me a steep decline in living conditions over the last 300 years for its average citizen. If you could find any there would be 100s of others that improved in the exact opposite way.

In my own country (Ireland) it was probably a daily struggle to eat and stay alive in the early 1700's. It wasn't some fantastical world where everyone was treated the same and wealth was evenly divided.

My parents have told me stories about them not eating chocolate for months at a time cause it was so hard to get. 5/6 of them would sleep in the same bed - that was only 60 years ago.

I didn't make it too far into the video with statements like that.

This guys seems pretty loose on the facts and all about the shocking emotional feelz.

"They are making $2 dollars a day"

Audience: "oooooooo"

Reality: $2 is a lot different in a small village in India than wherever this is filmed. It doesn't equal 1/3 a bagel.

My mom comes from a very poor family and my grandad fought in WW2. They could eat because they had animals and some land in which they cultivated vegetables. They couldn't just go out and buy whatever they wanted

People today think they are struggling when they wouldn't even be able to grow a pound of salad by themselves. Oh no you can't go out and buy the latest iPhone, poor soul.

If you can eat twice a day every day and have a roof above your head you are already doing 1000000000000000000000x times better than any other person in history before WW2, except for the kings and nobles (and even then, they still died to illnesses that don't even exist anymore today).

Just change cellphone for capitalism.

Anyone saying the world is worst off now for 40% of people than in the 1700's is talking absolute nonsense.

Ya 100%

It is people with zero idea of history who are tricked into thinking "someone stole half".

Reality is a few people created a LOT of value that has risen the standards for everyone. And for every 1 person you can point a finger at as "they got all the money now", there is 10,000 others who struggled in vain to provide you with that same valuable service or product.

I wonder how this crowd would be if the "richest 67 people" just decided to shutdown what they did fully for a year to see how it helps everyone else.

Yup.

Yet people still buy into this stuff... it's ludicrous.

In what way is climate change an oppurtunity?
I`m not being sarcastic, I`m genuinely curious about what ideas you got from the climate change problem.

Look at the demographics of those people into climate change and sell products to them. The same people fanatic about climate change are also the same kind fanatic about veganism, liberal ideology, 10-types-of-genders and all that new age shebang.
