Frustrated With Climate Narratives?
The climate crisis is the biggest challenge of our generation, yet we are doing too little too slow. PhDs and engineers are pulling their weight but we need all hands on deck.
I believe that climate tech has a unique proposition:
🦾 Technology: Solutions that are indistinguishable from magic.
🍋 Opportunity: A market that makes amazon.com look like a lemonade stand.
🙌 Community: Smart and well-intentioned people trying to unf*ck the planet.
Many people want to play their part but common literature reads like this:
“The Working Group II contribution to the IPCC Sixth Assessment Report assesses the impacts of climate change, looking at ecosystems, biodiversity, and human communities at global and regional levels.” - IPCC Report 2022
Yup, me neither 🙄
