Thank You for Being Late. If I pluck all the oranges from the lower branches, I am effectively out of accessible fruit. From my limited perspective, oranges are now scarce. Problem solved.

Technology is a resource-liberating mechanism. It can make the once scarce the now abundant.

Located on the edge of Abu Dhabi, out past the oil refinery and the airport, Masdar will soon house 50, residents, while another 40, work there. They will do so without producing any waste or releasing any carbon. Fortune magazine once called it the wealthiest city in the world.

Abundance: The Future Is Better Than You Think

In February I traveled to Abu Dhabi to find out just how interesting. Soon after arriving, I left my hotel, hopped in a cab, and took a ride out to the Masdar construction site. It was a journey back in time. Until the discovery of oil in , Abu Dhabi had been a community of nomadic herders and pearl divers.

What I found was a few construction trailers parked in a barren plot of desert. During my visit, I had the chance to meet Jay Witherspoon, the technical director for the whole project. Witherspoon explained the challenges they were facing and the reasons for those challenges.

OPL, then, is a global initiative meant to combat these shortages. Masdar is one of the most expensive construction projects in history. The entire city is being built for a post-petroleum future where oil shortages and water war are a significant threat. But this is where the lesson of aluminum becomes relevant. Even in a world without oil, Masdar is still bathed in sunlight. A lot of sunlight. The amount of solar energy that hits our atmosphere has been well established at petawatts 1.

Moreover, as far as water wars are concerned, Masdar sits on the Persian Gulf—which is a mighty aqueous body. The Earth itself is a water planet, covered 70 percent by oceans. But these oceans, like the Persian Gulf, are far too salty for consumption or crop production. In fact, What if, though, in the same way that electrolysis easily transformed bauxite into aluminum, a new technology could desalinate just a minute fraction of our oceans? How thirsty is Masdar then? Yet the threat of scarcity still dominates our worldview.

Because of this, Malthus was certain there was going to come a point in time when we would exceed our capacity to feed ourselves. By the early s something of a consensus had been reached.

In Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Paul R. Ehrlich sounded an even louder alarm with the publication of The Population Bomb. But it was the downstream result of a small meeting held in that really alerted the world to the depth of the crisis. That year, Scottish scientist Alexander King and Italian industrialist Aurelio Peccei gathered together a multidisciplinary group of top international thinkers at a small villa in Rome. Conventional wisdom says this gap cannot be closed.

But it is closing—fast. The authors document how four forces—exponential technologies, the DIY innovator, the Technophilanthropist, and the Rising Billion—are conspiring to solve our biggest problems. Please log in to write a review.

A far better solution than the ones Diamandis proposes, would be to put humane programs in place to systematically reduce human birth rates. Breaking down human needs by category--water, food, energy, health care, education, freedom--Diamandis and Kotler introduce us to dozens of innovators and industry captains making tremendous strides in each are: Dean Kamen's Slingshot, a technology that can transform polluted water, salt water or even raw sewage into high-quality drinking water for less that once cent a liter; the Qualcomm Tricorder X PRIZE which promises a low-cost, handheld medical device that allows anyone to diagnose themselves better than a board certified-doctor; Dickson Despommier's "vertical farms," which replaces traditional agriculture with a system that uses 80 percent less land, 90 percent less water, percent fewer pesticides, adn zero transportation costs.

However, children learn best when someone cares about their studies, and therefore the need for teachers cannot be reduced. The future of education is a personalized system since each student is different. And Why? Abundance for all is within our grasp. Diamandis spends an entire chapter arguing that those who disagree with him do so because of the inherent psychological underpinnings of the brain, which cause us to be unduly influenced by an innate pessimism and to place increased weight on negative arguments and evidence and to ignore positive news and events in turn.

And this will help provide education and jobs, helping to eliminate poverty.
