Climate Change

  • Invent zero-point energy
  • Invent new battery technology
  • Vote in favor of climate-helping political candidates
  • Donate money to support climate-helping political candidates

devote significant portion of your career, not just a hackathon.

help develop proven business models for alternative energy (e.g. solar).

provide technology that’s capable of scaling, and economically viable at scale, as an enabler.

contribute software, for example:

  • probabilistic modelling that improves estimates of wind capacity at a location.


mass-manufacturable (even 3D-printable), vertical-axis wind turbines.

develop smart grids that allow energy to be moved around from dynamic producers to dynamic consumers.

invent better energy storage technologies

assist the physics problems of energy storage technology by creating:

design tools, simulation tools, and control systems

provide our climate scientists and energy engineers with a civilized computing environment

Build better climate models.

design and build languages that can affect the quality of energy systems.

tools for quickly estimating the answers to these questions, so she can fluidly explore the space of possibilities and identify ideas that have some hope of being important, feasible, and viable

tools for model-driven debate.

tools that enhance the imagination.

provide quantified education.


Consider "Jevons paradox"

In economics, the Jevons paradox (/ˈdʒɛvənz/; sometimes Jevons effect) occurs when technological progress or government policy increases the efficiency with which a resource is used (reducing the amount necessary for any one use), but the rate of consumption of that resource rises due to increasing demand
