Connect with Us: Rebooting the Future Blog

“Rebooting the Future” is a place to think about the world we’ve created as a result of climate change, and to explore some potential solutions, especially renewable energy. It’s inspired by a version of the Pottery Barn rule: “we broke it; now we own it.” That’s essentially why the new geological era we’re living in is called the “Anthropocene” — it’s based on overwhelming global evidence that atmospheric, geologic, hydrologic, biospheric and other earth system processes are now altered by humans. What will we do now that we “own it”?
