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.

My more considered reflections on techno-optimism.

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.

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.
