Quora – What steps are you going to take in 2020 for our environment, and how serious are you about it?

Think about the consequences of your actions.

Choose wisely what you do.

Support research into exponential technologies (fully automated manufacturing).

Support global cooperation – not in terms of a single global government, but in terms of all groups of people working cooperatively together as much as that is possible.

Be respectful of diversity.

Start thinking seriously about the failures of market based systems (markets, money, capital), and the way in which scarcity is required to deliver market value, and markets value anything universally abundant at zero. Start thinking about how you might live without the ideas of money and markets having the dominant role they currently have in our lives.

Start thinking about what you really need, to do what you most want to do (provided that what you want to do is fundamentally cooperative in nature, it should be possible relatively soon).

We need to move away from fossil fuels, and to managing our global climate, and doing that is only realistically possible with fully automated manufacturing, and the exponential expansion of manufacturing capacity that implies.

So it is all doable, and needs to be done, and it is a very long way from any of “business as usual” cases being generally discussed today.

Seems like I might be a cancer survivor. Thinking about the systemic incentives within the world we find ourselves in, and how we might adjust them to provide an environment that supports everyone (no exceptions) - see www.tedhowardnz.com/money
