Can Steven Chu Win the Fight Over Global Warming?  - TIME.com (from 2009 but it's very actual...) | Trends, directions, future... | Scoop.it
Steven Chu, the Nobel-winning Secretary of Energy, says people caused global warming. I came across this Time article from 2009 and it amazed me. It's more actual than ever when e.g. on the presidential debates the energy issue is such a high ranked one. I normally am rather moderate global warming sceptic but what I've read in this has moved me twice or ten-times more than earlier e.g. the book and video of Al Gore. The standing, the stature of this great Chinese-American scientist-politician is something I should stop-by and rethink what I'm normally thinking about energy, politicians and at all about global warming... that somebody in a four-year bound administration could see in these dimensions?! Jesus Christ... this is a man...

just to characterise him briefly from one of the possible points of view, everybody in his family has more advanced degrees and is minimum science professor, he himself - on the question of the Time-reporter how many advanced degrees he himself holds - answered by asking: "...if a law degree counts as advanced..." and "...he was only - the later Nobel laureat physicist - a mere A-minus student, an 'academic blacksheep' - at least compared with older brother Gilbert, a straight-A valedictorian..., now a biochemistry professor at Stanford..."

The future of futurism.

The future of futurism. | Trends, directions, future... | Scoop.it

It's easy to make futurists look silly. For every prediction that comes true (or that sort of comes true—Nostradamus predicted that someone named "Hister" would do something terrible one day), about 20,000 more do not. - Are you Cornucopians or neo-Malthusians/doom-sayers? Or have you another alternative(s)? E.g. we will stagnate so and so till the sun is shining?
