It should be concerning, if we are lucky, we only have 10-12 years to mitigate the impact of climate change, and at the same time, we all have to deal with trials of everyday life.

But now it seems sentiment is changing, kids and students are already asking difficult questions, they always want to know why, when childen ask, what will be your excuse for ignoring climate change?

My dog ate my climate change mitigation plan?

In USA, Elon Musk funded the space X-prize, but where is the X-prize for climate change? Whilst it is obviously global issue, the solutions are all local. What works in the UK is unlikley to work in Hong Kong.

Perhaps you are hoping for technology, Machine Learning or AI will save the day! I am afraid you will be waist deep in water before that happens.


Update: Part II.....
