When Charlie Rose interviewed Ray Kurzweil, the renown futurist (BusinessWeek–March 7-13, 2011), Kurzweil assures us that in just 8 more doublings of solar power output (each, which is happening every 2 years), we will be able to meet 100% of our energy needs.
This is the amazing power of the speed of exponential technology change to potentially solve our seemingly unsolvable human problems.
As always, Kurzweil’s optimism about our future is noteworthy.
I hope that Kurzweil and the Prime Minister of Israel who discussed energy advice also shared insights about the prospect for Middle-East peace.
Let the amazing promise of technology coupled with the ultimate in faith (and a strong military deterent) bring genuine peace to us soon. Amen!
