Just released a new blog on my site summarising my current views on what's happening on the climate issue globally. It's generating a lot of reaction (of all types!) so clearly I've pressed a hot button for many people.

Love to hear what others think.

Gee +Paul Gilding I just read this and didn't realise that it was from 2013. I was going to ask you what you thought of latest developments in #auspol  given that they have recommended a scaling back of the RET. A blip in the wrong direction that will right itself?

I'm liking TED as a vehicle for getting the message out. Over 100,000 views of my talk in the first 24 hrs! Thanks for everyone's help in getting it around the place, most appreciated.

Can't agree more - TED Talks are some of the more interesting things you can find on the net.

Thanks for your hard work in writing your book the great Disruption, it was thought provoking and gave me some small hope that maybe we will not be doomed completely.

All the best from Richard in Tasmania Australia

My more considered reflections on techno-optimism.
I'm writing this on my way home from speaking at the annual TED gathering in Long Beach California, where 1500 people gathered to listen to what the organisers call “Ideas Worth Spreading”. TED ha...

Paul, Interesting reflections. I am currently reading Tali Sharot's The Optimism Bias - The Tour of the Irrationally Positive Brain http://www.time.com/time/health/article/0,8599,2074067,00.html & http://www.amazon.com/Optimism-Bias-Irrationally-Positive-Brain/dp/0307378489 and am also a huge fan of Sherry Turkle's Alone Together TEDxUIUC - Sherry Turkle - Alone Together & http://alonetogetherbook.com/ TEDxUIUC - Sherry Turkle - Alone Together

These resources point to the fact that the end of your post is accurate. I sense your new book will be called The End of Optimism.

Warm regards,
Jennifer

I'm still here in Long Beach, California at TED 2012 but the talk I did at the opening session is now on line. It created quite a stir amongst this community of people who are very concerned about sustainability but includes many enthusiastic proponents of technology as the solution to all our problems.

James Hansen also did a great presentation today on the latest climate change science and his personal journey from scientist to activist/scientist.

Tonight Jim and I will debate some of the "techno-optimists" on whether technology alone will prevent the crisis we see emerging.

Take a look, tell your network, let me know what you think.
