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?

CARBON DIET to save the World - Future Action

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

The 10 step Carbon Diet to save our future

Expect much of our world to adopt a strict carbon diet.  As with any diet you can eat what you like from time to time.  It’s the overall balance that really matters.  So with carbon dieting we can expect people will make choices.  We may chose for example to continue to burn a lot of carbon in planes, but still be carbon-light because so little carbon is used in future in heating our homes or driving our cars.   CARBON DIET - 10 letters in the two words describe 10 steps.

Cost of global warming - practical answers for future

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

Just 10 major innovations could reduce global carbon emissions by at least 25% by 2030, assuming very little political or economic change or major shifts in consumer behaviour. These are rough estimates with allowances for variable take-up in different parts of the world. Evidence linking human activity to climate change is now very compelling to most politicians, activists and opinion-formers world-wide. Regardless of whether the science turns out to be correct or not, it is emotion that will determine government action and business strategy. Munich-Re has estimated that action against global warming could cost 1% of global economic activity (GWP). It sounds huge but is only same as the world economy stalling for three months and then carrying on for the next three decades at the normal rate of growth.

How Green is Your IT? Save cost, better image, future strategy

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

People talk about Green IT for different reasons. Some worry about pollution in manufacturing or disposal. Others just want to save energy costs. IT directors are under huge pressure to save money, increase efficiency and meet environmental standards – and the good news is that they can do all this at almost zero cost, if capital outlay on Green IT is offset against savings in future years. Many corporations are rapidly changing their hardware, using better software, improving the operating environment, increasing recycling and encouraging users to work more efficiently. “Greening of IT” is not only paying for itself in many cases, but can also improve corporate image, customer loyalty, staff retention and productivity. Greatest impact is more likely when different teams work together: IT, real estate management, marketing, corporate affairs and human resources. For example, if the electricity bill for an entire office block is paid centrally, there may be no financial incentive for the IT department to buy new equipment, paid for out of reduced electricity bills
