Future of plastics and oceans - what next in global response. The truth about recycling industry globally. Sustainability keynote speaker

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

Future of plastics and how emotion drives single issues, creating people movements and immediate changes in government regulation, corporate behaviour. Around 400 million tons of plastic is in already in the oceans, and on current trends, the weight of marine plastics will be greater than all the fish in the sea by 2050.

Micro-particles are now found in just about every marine creature, as well as in millions of people. Expect thousands of new regulations over the next decade globally, to force rapid action on this problem. Part of this will involve a big rethink about polyester clothing – a single clothes wash can release 700,000 microplastic fibres. Read Future of Almost Everything book extract...

Expect water conflicts and water wars - lessons from Danube and Nile. Why water is becoming an issue of national security for many nations. Making cities water sustainable

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

Water is already a scarce and badly managed resource globally. Expect water conflicts - local, national and international, and even water wars. Comment from banks of Danube river in Hungary, Budapest. Lessons from river Nile - Uganda and Sudan. Comment by Patrick Dixon.

"Over a decade ago I warned of water wars, and that water would become a national security issue. We have seen this recently in Syria and Iraq. Rivers, canals, dams, water treatment plants and pipelines have all become military targets. Entire cities in desert areas can easily be placed under siege if their water is cut off."

How climate change sceptics are being forced to act on energy and environment

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

Economic pressures from oil and energy prices, and passionate climate change activists, will combine to force rapid change. Climate change science is only a best guess at what life will be like in 50-100 years time. If you want to know the short term future of corporations, government and society -- then look at passion / emotion related to these issues. Impact on manufacturing, logistics, supply chain management, wholesale, retail, production, engineering, emerging markets, outsourcing and offshoring decisions. Questions and challenges to the science of global warming, sustainability, resource depletion, food shortages and so on -- are being swept away by passions and choices of consumers / customers which are driving political action.

Solving the Water Crisis: Smart Innovation - Future Water Supplies

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

An average person in the world uses 1,000 cubic metres a year for growing food, hygiene and drinking – equivalent to 40% of an Olympic swimming pool.

Yet 4,000 children die every day because the water supply is unclean and 40% of the world do not have access to tap water – even though many of them own a mobile phone.

If the poorest nations gain a standard of living equivalent to wealthy nations today, then water demand will be three times the figure of 3,350 cubic kilometres seen in 2000.

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.
