Before anything else, read this first

Our world is approaching a geopolitical, environmental, and social economic tipping point. Our lives are already changing (and will continue to change) and many of us are not prepared. Despite good intentions, the global community is not responding with enough commitment to have a meaningful impact.I believe that we should act and make an impact…

The energy buzz reality

When we talk about energy, we fundamentally must adopt a holistic approach. One, where a diversity of competencies and capabilities, based on a common platform, can look at our current contextual placement and challenges from a 360 degrees perspective. I say contextual placement and not an energy crisis because we do not have an energy…

The Perspective of impact

The perspective of impact is subjective; it is changing with time and is often influenced by something we call the “ecology-of-the-self” (the context in which decisions are made facing natural disasters, data hacks, climate change, bubbles in the economy, geopolitics, wars, and more) We are surrounded by more smart things, more money, more people moving…

Competences of the future.

It’s hard, some say impossible, to predict the future, but you can navigate it if you have the right set of tools. It’s clear that with the current pace of jolting technologies, yesterday’s learning will fade away, and we will have a choice on our hand. To be replaced. Or to advance ourselves to a…

I have always believed that the greatest asset of any organization is its people (something that Elon Musk is discovering after he fired most of Twitters employees). That brings us to the question of why…

The perfect storm

There are types of storms that you can hear about on the news. There are types of storms that you can simply hear knocking on your window.

On climate and data

Unfortunately, science is not based on data anymore, but on people’s opinions. We don’t try to learn the data, and instead get caught up in the buzzwords. We confuse correlation with causation, forgetting that correlation is not causation! The climate is a non-linear, chaotic system that lacks a core of implicit order. As such, it…

The measurement of self value

More than anything, Elon Musk’s takeover of Twitter brought forth the question of what is real. The battle between bots and humans is not simply a question of what is the real value of a company, but how our obsession with measuring self-value is leading us down a path that will land us in the…

Fascism for our future

Net-zero and the green deal philosophies pose the greatest threat to our societal and physical infrastructures. Antagonistic towards human beings and science, and full of a fascist tone, these philosophies, if fully adopted and implemented, could bring about the doom and gloom they aim to prevent. Sustainability is a balance between environmental, equity, and economic…
