We discussed global warming a while back, basically saying that everyone could be missing the point. Let’s explore that idea even further.
With our connected world, the wavelengths around us are more and more occupied by information. So where there was once nothing, there is something. Millions of times over, in your living room.
The more occupied the space gets, the more energy it has. And we know as technology improves, things will only get more connected and faster. At a quantum level, it is more and more probable that the energies of the atoms that make up our atmosphere are more and more excited. And the more excited they are, the more energy there is. And more energy essentially just means more heat.
Our atmosphere has more energy than ever and all indications is that it will continue to increase. We need to think critically about this problem before we can start to make meaningful progress.
