COP26 and beyond: Climate Emergency will trigger action on wartime scale: Sustainability / ESG will dominate politics for 300 years. Green tech will radically transform life on earth, but not in time to prevent global crises / environmental catastrophes

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future GreenTech, Sustainability Keynote Speaker

Over 1.7 million views of my Climate Emergency Webinar and Q+A - based on my book SustainAgility

COP26 and beyond - SUSTAINABILITY WILL BE A DOMINANT ISSUE FOR NEXT 300 YEARS

Expect global responses to the climate emergency on a wartime basis - far beyond scale of any normal government measures.  What we have seen so far is NOTHING compared to what is to come.

Just look at what happened in the War against COVID. And COVID caused a generation to ask deeper questions about the future survival of humanity, about what we have done to our planet. So which will have the greatest impact? One new virus or wrecking our planet's future?

In my book SUSTAINAGILITY several years ago I warned of the dangers of inaction - and showed that we already have ALL the green tech innovations we need to provide radical answers to climate change, just by rolling out on massive scale what we have already developed.

Expect far greater concerns over the next 30 years about sustainability and what kind of planet will remain in 100 years, with shortages of water, food and other resources and major threats to other forms of life. (Written 4 April 2021 - based on many corporate keynotes given at major events on sustainability, energy use and decarbonisation.)

All the world's largest economies will unity in a common aim to protect our future planet. And in many cases, multinationals will race further ahead than government regulations, to prove their ESG credentials (Environment, Social Responsibility, Governance) to customers, shareholders media and local communities. We've seen accelerated corporate responses before in many other areas such as food safety and food labelling, animal welfare in farming, vehicle safety and so on, where companies have rapidly delivered while governments dithered.

The Construction Industry will be the front line for radical change towards zero carbon - linked to 38% of carbon emissions (building, demolishing, heating and cooling) - see below.

Expect massive catch up in America following the exit of President Trump, and fresh initiatives on massive scale to be proposed by both China and India, ramping up rapidly their own national responses over the next decade.

Future of construction. How to save 40% of global CO2 emissions - green construction. Greentech buildings BOOM, zero carbon construction methods. 2020-2040: Carbon-neutral offices, homes, schools, factories and infrastructure. Construction keynote speaker

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future GreenTech, Sustainability Keynote Speaker

Future of construction, and how the construction industry will respond to the climate emergency.

The construction industry is responsible for almost 40% of global CO2 emissions, taking into account the embodied energy in building (30%), energy wasted in demolition (10%), and costs of heating or cooling the building during it's lifetime (60%).

Look at the largest green building projects we have seen over the last decade or two, and multiply by ten or more over the next twenty years - in individual size and collectively.  

We need to be far bolder and more ambitious in ramping up decarbonisation of our world.  And at the same time expect massive steps to decarbonise construction.

Take for example the targets announced by the UK government in November 2020. 4 times current offshore wind capacity by 2030.  

First town heated entirely by hydrogen by 2030 with £500m investment. 600,000 heat pumps a year installed by 2030.  £1bn on carbon capture - and so on.  China will continue to dominate green tech investment globally.

There will be huge focus on creating smart, “carbon neutral” buildings that are ultra-efficient to heat or cool. 

But we will also see far more attention on how long those buildings will actually last.  My own home was built in 1842 and I expect will still be lived in by the year 2300.  

But I don’t know many commercial tower blocks or factories being built today that have a life-expectancy of more than 50 years - and many buildings being demolished today are less than 40 years old.

This really matters, because 30% of the entire energy consumed in the average life cycle of an office tower is the energy consumed in building it, and 10% more can be consumed in demolition.  

We need to see far more life-enhancing, iconic structures that people will love and enjoy using for generations to come. 

And also far greater efforts to convert, adapt, upgrade, renew, restore, repair and redesign existing buildings.

Future of plastics, micro plastics and oceans - what next in protecting marine ecosystems. Future of biodegradable plastics. The truth about recycling industry globally. Sustainability keynote speaker VIDEO / POST

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future GreenTech, Sustainability Keynote Speaker

Future of plastics and how emotion drives single issues, creating people movements and immediate changes in government regulation, corporate behaviour. Around 400 million tons of plastic is in already in the oceans, and on current trends, the weight of marine plastics will be greater than all the fish in the sea by 2050.

Micro-particles are now found in just about every marine creature, as well as in millions of people. Expect thousands of new regulations over the next decade globally, to force rapid action on this problem. Part of this will involve a big rethink about polyester clothing – a single clothes wash can release 700,000 microplastic fibres. Read Future of Almost Everything book extract...

Water is already a scarce and badly managed resource globally. Expect water conflicts - local, national and international, and even water wars. Comment from banks of Danube river in Hungary, Budapest. Lessons from river Nile - Uganda and Sudan. Comment by Patrick Dixon.

"Over a decade ago I warned of water wars, and that water would become a national security issue. We have seen this recently in Syria and Iraq. Rivers, canals, dams, water treatment plants and pipelines have all become military targets. Entire cities in desert areas can easily be placed under siege if their water is cut off."

Solving the Water Crisis: Smart Innovation - Future Water Supplies. How to reduce average 1000 cubic metres of water per person used a year. Future water shortages and solutions. Water and utilities keynote speaker

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future GreenTech, Sustainability Keynote Speaker

An average person in the world uses 1,000 cubic metres a year for growing food, hygiene and drinking – equivalent to 40% of an Olympic swimming pool.

Yet 4,000 children die every day because the water supply is unclean and 40% of the world do not have access to tap water – even though many of them own a mobile phone.

If the poorest nations gain a standard of living equivalent to wealthy nations today, then water demand will be three times the figure of 3,350 cubic kilometres seen in 2000.

True Cost of Global Warming - Economic Impact

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future GreenTech, Sustainability Keynote Speaker

The truth is that there are very few solid facts when it comes to global warming science.  Loads of data, loads of opinions, loads of theories and models of the future, but very little history.  And that is what we need more of to be 100% sure. Extreme statements and dire warnings have already gripped the imagination of billions of people.  But what is the truth?  What is the real evidence linking carbon dioxide to climate change, and how can we be sure this is mainly due to human activity, and not some massive over-reaction drummed up by eco-freaks and business speculators.  How hot will things really have to get before there is a catastrophe?  Are we already too late to change the future?
