Some thoughts over at the Foresight Institute. I myself am similarly turned away from the religious aspects of the environmental movement, as well as fairly outraged at the tendency of the environmentalists to work against any and all technological developments. While they’re primarily concerned with nanotechnology over at the Foresight Institute, I find that even many technologies and developments that could help us today offend environmentalists – and those are developments that are win-win, helping not only the environment, but society. After all, rich societies are the only ones that have the luxury of really worrying about the environment.
