what would 8 billion human brains need to do between 1984 and 2025 to be sustainable

water water everywhere but not a drop to drink; paper money everywhere but not for community sustaining microfranchises;  white empires sick record: from 1843 STARVING IRISH WITH ENGLANDS CORN LAWS TO G7 2021  CORNWALL- INSTEAD OF ORGANISING 20 BILLION VACCINES BLAH BLAH ...

let's get back to celebrating the other 7.5 billion human beings especially the 3.75 billion under 30 who dont deserve such blind parents

==================

40 years after surviving world war 2 (allied bomber command myanamr) dad the economist's norman macrae and i chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk wrote the 2025 report

we'd both worked on technology futures - a subject that father became interested in after meeting von neumann and becoming his biographer

we have never had any doubt that we humans will have enough technology to be sustainable but we also know ho fast its been multilpying  -eg moores law 100 fold each decade- eg far too fast for governments to lead sustainability policies;  

here are the 10 challenges that concerned us most in 1984 and concern us most now as more and more people begin to call glasgow cop26 humanity's best lasr chance

moore's last chance schools year 21/22

 if you are concerned about last chance schools years - our economistdiary (linkedin version) offers 100 sustainability summits and zooms that samples of teachers and under 30s as sustainability generation need to monitor and interconnect eg with apps!


here are opening details on why gordon moore has for many years been a top 50 pick for world record jobs teachers


#br6 gordon moore

MOORES LAW - a japanese client stimulated american intel to invent programable chips - from 1965 gordon moore promised any alumni around him or silicon valley (branded from 1972  to unite 100 times moore explorers and to live up to stanfords (CA 5th governor's) founding purpose- health of all california kids) would get chance to apply 100 times more chip power every decade until intel of machines in the 2020s when a trillion times moore would probably result in humans turning over governance of real time data platforms streaming in from every gps on earth wherever a human smart device on eg a drone one was beaming in - moore's company intel has gravitated purpose of chip production relentlessly; 

through the 2010s we have seen commercial platforms take over real time ops - eg amazon/bezos almost anything americans want to buy and delivered; facebook anything americans want to chat about- it is not at all clear when commerce data monopoly results in sustainability; many asian countries lead in blending public and commercial ai algorithms -if the worlds under 30s are to be the sustainable generation this ai platforms issue must be made transparent by 2020s- this is not a new need - neumann/moore and other exponential tech innovators alumni have debated it since 1984 at 2025report 


related to moore is john von neumann; in 12 post war years before is death his work fathered computing in ever way- by 1961twin (AI) labs of von neumann alumni were planted at stanford and mit boston - one network wgich debates where ae we in the 2020s is futureoflife.org probably the main stimulus for the un taking up responsibility of aifoor good or ai for sustainability - transparency note my father normamacrae.net who edited economics for good for 50 years used his first years of not writing weekly leaders to do biography of von neumann published in english and japanese 


Sunday, September 5, 2021

when i 1984 dad (norman macrae of the economist) and I (chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk) published the first report on could humans race sustainably by 2025, we were most concerned with sharing john von neumanns exponential consequences (see bio); never hace 3 generations todays younger half of world, parents and grans faced a trillion times more tech change 1955-2025 but that is neumanns legacy- and it means we need to get tech for eveyonne on life changing markets health, education, finance - father published a companion survey in the economist 1984 -the idea if you dont see better health/safety every decade for all from 1984 the know digital is being falsely designed for most people (eg by a few ever richer men); 


the problem of mediating community challenges like health, education, water and going green is that they would take more tech than fixing finance for all- so if we dont find models making small saving/loans/community enrterprises 10 times less costly by 2000 - again we are going in the wrong direction- in chapter 6 you will see the biggest headline warning of the book- all 7.5 billion beings will be in a terrible mess unless most people afree by 2000 that the biggest risk to humans is discepancies in incomes and expectations of rich and ooor nations and start mobilsing solutions</span><div style="color: black; text-align: left;"><br />while there seemed to be a lot of chat about this millennium goal clearly it was not understood in washington dc or london or any g7 seat of power as evidenced by everything that has so far happeneed in the 21st c bringing us ro 21-22 the last best chance to precent extinction - we gave the tech to solve this - we have experienes of a billion women who have solved this in their communities; are we able to zoom sdgs acyions everywhere or will a very few superpowerful people continue to block humans from uniting<

extinction games - 3rd and final chance - un sdgs decade starting 21-22 glasgow cop 26

1984 prediction why media needed to help unite world around sdgoal 1 by 2000



here is a summary of worldwide end games - if you see anyway of constructively sharing it please mail chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk 

extinction games - glasgow nov 2021 - kerry humanity's last best chance

our first chance to share machines inclusively worldwide began in 1760s when glasgow university's james watt invented engines and smith wrote about moral sentiments of sharing machines equally

instead mainly 7 white empires /slave traded/genocided/colonised other peoples lands ending in world wars -as far as asa goes london was the far the worst; it is estimated  by economists advising gandhi that trade around the quarter of people living on the indian subcontinent was 80% taxed by london over centuries- compound consequences of that trapped most asians in poverty without access to electricity grids

in other words the world up to world war 2 was designed to benefit approximately 15% of peoples of white ethnicity at the expense of over 60% asians abou 13% africans 7% latin americans and 5% others 

1945 saw second lasr chance to end extinction - arguably united nations and human relations up to 1962 but assassinations of kennedy and medgar evers in states seem to have caused us optimism- so wondrous from 1890-1960 - to be replaced by negative media as well as loss of progress on  progressing racial equity- and eu common agriclultural policy ended any chance of progressing development of med sea connected developing nations; as did misperception of strength of ussr- and failure of transparency of aid to former dev countries

in more detail from the far east, japan copied the awful habits of white empires between 1850-1945 but after world war 2 gave back with 2 models around which all asians could rising staring with korea south taiwan, hk, singapore, diaspora chinese - see economist surveys on asia between 1962-1977 at ww.normanmacrae.net

ps of course the roles of 200 nations interacting have more complexity than this overview but the legacy of john von neumann waa 100 tmes more connectivity/interdependence of peoples every decade from 1960s onwards moon race decade

in our 1984 2025 report- we timelined safest dates for change- eg by 2000 everyone in the world needed to recognise and action the value that mans greatest risk was discrepancies in incomes and expectations between rich and poor nations

what went wrong? 

well 9/11 can be interpreted as there being almost 0 awareness of this risk instead of 100%

somewhere in the 1990s the worldwide web as the smartest way of mediating concerns of people got lost to advertising - when amazon in 1994 started commercial web transactions they drowned out ant chance of knowledge webs sharing top place - could there have been some kind of ways of keeping ad-led webs and life-critical knowhow webs searchable separately; because this wasnt done (nor mobilised when apps could have offered a second chance at segmentation, nor so far segmented when ai offered a final chance) education itself never seriously started using virtual modes until covid shut real modes down - instead of our books plea that educators smoothly experimented with virtual over the 30 years of worldwide web, we humans have very low trust nd love of each other compared with 2020s sustainability needed to be

is there a solution - go look at what a billion poorest asian women have done 1970-2020

2020s - greatest age of unlearning

 i grew up in 1950s london - in that time and place water seemed to be free- there was no cost to how much a home consumed; i am not even sure water was separated from a combined local tax - i do not think water was ever discussed at schools i went to - the text books on geography certainly didnt have anything relevant to interests that suddenly grabbed me 50 years later -r which grap me as a diaspora scot ahead od glasgow nov 2021 www.ecop26.com; i am ashamed to say that even when aged 9 i shared a class with david attenboriughs so i saw no connection between briodcasting on animals lives and the idea that water might become a warground

2001-2005 i volunteered among 20 people to host knowledgeboard across all eu countries- i was supposed to host debates on knowledge and emotional intel- trusting/loving each other across borders aa well as in communities; like many people 9/11 upset me; not least because i was working in london on what 9/11 made an absolutely meaningless project spending d a billion dollars on advertising while my 4 year old daughter was in washington dc- for my sins i have 45 years experience of applying statistis to all sorts of media projects - professional record chrismacrae.com

at the eu's blended space, i started a sub-club water angels -i wanted to connect both experts in water with those who cared- to make a map of 100 different problems people experience differently on water-at the time a lot of friends were also contributing to a water debate at both soCIAL AND ECONOMIC WORLD FORUMS- I MAY HAVE KNOWN NOTHING ABOUT WATER BUT AT LEAST I THOUGHT I COULD SEARCH WHO'S WHO AND WHY- it seemed to me we could list biggest diffeenccs between countries or even states on what is assumed free and whats very expensive; in the middle east water is vey expensive; moreover though some countries have innovated how to desalinate the ocean if they border it most havent not in any massive way; other ater troubles occur when a big river stars at the top of a mountain but flows through multiple nations ; the moutin nation can play water politcs with wheher ny clean water gets to neigborng countries; conversely if a country is landlocked, unless it has friends nations all the way to the sea it cant effectively jin ij world trDE WHICH IS 90% SHIPPED

THIS IS JUST one of over @) EXAMPLES we TRIED TO DEBATE IN 184'S 2025 REPORT UPDATED TO A LAST VERSION IN SWEDISH THE NEW VIKINGS; TECHNOLGY IN OUR VIEW WAS MAKING US ALL MORE INTERDEPENDENT ON EACH OTHER AND NATURES COMMONS THAN SEPARATE- BORDErS INHERITED FROM THECOLONIAL AGE HAD IN MOST CASES STILL NOT BEEN RESOLVED SO THAT NEIGHBORNG COUNTRIES VALUED EAH OTHER


UNLESS WE HUMANS CHANGED THEV2020S WOULD BECOME THE LAST DECADE TO PREVENT EXTINCTION

THE EXTINXTION GAMES CONTINUE - START HERE OR IF YOU HAVE AN IDEA OF WHERE TO START HUMANLY RWINNING PEOPLES ACROSS HEMISPHERES I AM AT CHRIS.MACRAE@YAHOO.CO.UK WASHINGTON DC - AND UNLIKE SOME AMERCAN CITIES I FIND DC THE ONETHAT MOST HATES YOUTH F ANY RICH CAPITL- ANY IDEAS ON SORTING THAT OUT WILL COME TOP OF MY RESPONSE LIST
