I’ve said before and I’ll say again that conversations like mine with Mark Mills are what I value and wish we had more of. We do our research, we have strong opinions, we agree on many things, we disagree on some things we care about.
Most of all, I believe we learn from each other, respect different opinions, and try to understand the other’s view and goals.
In this conversation we talk about his book and the challenges of predictions at first, The most interesting parts are challenging each other on our understandings of our environmental problems and what we can do about them. We agree most proposed solutions that humanity is pursuing don’t work and people are misguided. We differ on our expectations in what can work between technology and people. He has me opening my mind to some things I’d be closed off to otherwise, in part because he’s not just spouting opinion or blind hope. He’s done the research. I believe I have too.
