A lot of doom and gloom surrounds environmentalists due to a supposed impending climate catastrophe. We hope to change this outlook by analyzing some of the positive elements of recent climate developments and technological innovations.
Technological revolutions have led to globally declining poverty at unprecedented rates. It can be argued that there is a correlation between an increase in wealth and a proclivity for environmental concern. Thus, we can hypothesize that the more mental energy we have dedicated towards solving environmental issues, the higher the likelihood that we solve the problem.
Let's be rationally optimistic for the future. We need practical and pragmatic solutions to these problems, which will benefit by dedicating more minds to solving them.
