Stewart Brand + Mark Z. Jacobson: Debate: Does the world need nuclear energy?
I have a question that would love to hear opinions on: Why don´t we fill up all of the world´s deserts with solar panels? - Saudi Arabia´s deserts are so vast, and always sun bathed.. Do you think it to be an idea never been thought of? Doubtful, or is it more political/economical? Don´t you think there are enormous economic interests in the carbon fuels sector still driving our developement? ty,

Matt Ridley: When ideas have sex
The only thing is the environmental/cost in resources for this "growth". Coltan is now destroying rainforests, (coltan is used in touch phones and other stuff), so.. who´s going to care about anything with such "high earnings". YET, this might be blind acting like the Easter Island men, who cut down all their trees. (See Jared Diamond) -Hope not.

How to justify migration from plastic to paper/glass for owners of big industries?
Hello, I think the need for switching is evident, some people see it, other don´t. Safoora, you probably have an intrest derived from ambiental purposes which in my opinion should be the only ones arroun! Hehe, nevertheless, as you well said, big business people aren´t that much into this way of thinking, they´re into money. Now, I don´t think money is bad, quite on the contrary, I think it can be a great weapon for those of us who want to meet certain goals! So try to think in terms of money and you´ll come closer to their heads.. hmmm What does my company wan´t? TO MAKE MONEEY! haha oh my,, ok ok. so: what are you innecesarily spending your money on? .. EMPLOYEES!! .. oh my.. no no,, Look, all theese plastic cups you buy, get one use and are then thrown away! Don´t you think you could "higher your profit margin" if you cut on cup spendings? Maybe cheaper, paper, or mug/per employee could really earn you more MONEEY!! ooh.. =D Aand theres another thing that could definitley work: There are other things that increase a companies value, besides physically recieving profit from normal operations.. and these, even more nowadays in which a companies image is so valuable, you can talk about the following idea: "Dear Company: If you really compromise to the usage of such and such biodegradable materials, (be it paper cups, water saving facilities, heat saving infrastructure, OR socialy aware campaigns, ANYTHING that is flat out possitive for society CAN become an added value which the company can exploit!.. So for example "Fedex uses only biodegradable material in its envelopes!!" Make a little logo or something, and Fedex just might captivate a nice crowd! So I really hope I helped, TED: 10/10 Ideasdude,
