To Be or Not To Be – that is the question -Shakespeare Hamlet Act 3 Scene 1 SDGsU.com[i]


As you can see Irish American President Kennedy liked my Father Scottish Brit's 1962 survey in The Economist of the good news that not only was Japan rising from the ashes of nuclear war but had a win-win economic model around which the whole of Asia could rise. It seemed that the first 5 years of von neumann's legacy was going well:

JFK kennedy had challenged youth to an amzing goal- land on the moon - if technology could do that what might each next decade of youth deliver

an artificial intel lab had been set up on both us coasts - facing the pacific out of stanford and the atlantic  - intel had recieved such a huge order from a japanese calculator company that it invented the prograable chip so as not to be beholden to one clint; and gordon moore had challenged networks around him to increase 100 fold every decade this new kind of engineering power- soon the whole region from santa clara to san francisco had rebranded itself silicon valley- there was a new nrew world to co-create far different from the mess that the first two industrial revolutions had produced through the conflicts of the 7 white empires britain france germany italy russia canada and america

back in 1962 my father norman macrae was celebratig, in his optimistic manner that he believed journalists must value- the permission to publish one named survey after 15 years sub-editing the economist- he chose japan. As a teenage scot serving in allied bomber command stationed in myanmar, father and so i would not have survived without american help. But father grew up in european embassies where his dad was trying to prevent both stalin and hitler from ever greater media and human abuse. So father thought of wars as systemically spiraled  by historic mistakes- none more than slavemaking as a currency flow of empire (along with opium) which sadly london had accelerated with firstcomers access to smith and watt's engines. By 1939 continental Asians nearly two thirds of human beings had all but been left out of 185 years of access to machines let alone electricity grids; so dad was overjoyed to see japan was scaling solutions -mainly open sourced by american agricultural hero borlaug and engineering hero deming. not just for its peoples growth but potentially all over asia.As you can see jfk thought it would be great to learn from japan but when he was assassinated a year later all sorts of dismal things overwhelmed americans at home with failure to achieve black and white harmony; across nearby latin american borders where ussr an usa raced to sponsor rival ictators none of whom valued their peoples. 

2010: When my father died the japanese ambassador to bangladesh kindly hosted 2 roundtables with chief guest fazle abed of brac. He had heard my father's two legacy wishes were about learning how to build sustainable communities -see 6 movement abed spent 50 years mapping -  from the billion women who had just ended extreme poverty across asia and how the climactic decade of applying von neumann technologies that father had the privilege to be biographer of...

Sustainability 2020’s is mathematically equivalent to  rising exponential opportunities are gravitated by blending nature’s diversity with the singularity achieved by alumni of Moore’s law 1965 who committed to 100-fold increase in analytical machine capability every decade.  Today, this has reached the stage where cloning one dollar artificial brains whose pure switching capability exceeds human brains, last mile service apps made accessible anywhere satellites connect and deep data turned in autonomous operational platforms governed real time through both personal and societal devices whose brains mimic 5-fold human senses. Their GPS positioning -drone assisted where needed - can track personal human or other natural behaviors from crops to animal species to nature’s own energetic waves.2020s is awash with new data 99% of which has never been integrated locally before.

In climate news today...

Gernot Wagner's Risky Climate

I vividly remember attending my first UN climate talks in 2008. I remember the optimism, the technical conversations, the discussions about the overpriced food in the conference center, the press, the flight, and yes, the debates about the carbon footprint of the flight.

I flew to Accra as part of the delegation of the Environmental Defense Fund, to attend one of the many formal preparatory meetings leading up to the big December talks in Poznan, Poland: COP14 — the 14th Conference of the Parties — which was, in turn, largely meant as a build-up for COP15 in Copenhagen. By now, of course, COP26 has come and gone, and there will be COP27, and many more yet to come. Where to go from here?

Some conversations have shifted markedly over the years; others not at all. The 2008 idea: Cut through problems of who pays whom to do the hard work of cutting CO₂ by devising global mechanisms called “clean investment budgets.” In many ways it was a new name for an old idea: borrow from our future selves via a (hypothetical) global carbon market to pay for low-carbon investments. The basic concept is still at the core of climate negotiations, and will be for years to come — forever attempting to push the world toward ever more climate action.

There are earnest new analyses showing how more such action ought to be in everyone’s self-interest. It is, or at least it would be, were it not for centuries-old power structures pushing in the opposite direction. None of this is easy, but there are indeed some important lessons to glean from all of this for future climate talks.

Keep up the circus

People pay attention to these negotiations because other people pay attention to them, and that’s exactly the point. Next year’s talks will bring stories about how climate activists will attempt to take public transit from England to Egypt, or bike from Cape Town to Cairo. Some of these stories will be silly, some endearingly earnest. There will be self-styled ‘realists’ pointing out how, after a certain distance, planes emit less CO₂ than trains. There will be those pointing out how a focus on individual action detracts from the larger picture, or how just that focus is, in fact, empowering. Both will be right. The point is that there will be stories, all but dominating headlines, airwaves and social-media chatter.

It’s precisely because of that spotlight that the Paris Agreement’s “ratcheting up” mechanism works. There is no direct line from Leo DiCaprio taking notes at a methane side event in Glasgow to the global methane pledge aiming to cut emissions by 30% by 2030, but it’s hard to see the pledge happening without this sort of attention the COP brings.

Name the losers

The Glasgow Climate Pact stood out in that, for the first time in climate-talk history, it doesn’t just name CO₂ and other greenhouse gases as being the problem, it calls out fossil fuels. Alas, the only one mentioned by name is coal.

Coal, by many accounts, is indeed the worst offender, packing the most CO₂ punch per unit of energy. But, of course, it is not the only one. Oil and natural gas are equally part of the problem, and both should be identified by name.

Calling out coal led to a last-minute kerfuffle around the pact’s language being changed from a “phase out” to a “phase down,” with India taking the brunt of the blame. It was, of course, not the only country preferring that watered-down language. Australia, China and the U.S. were all perfectly happy to hide behind the Indian objection.

More importantly, though, by naming coal, the rich countries most dependent on oil and natural gas seemingly got off without being called out directly. The next COP should fix that omission.

Pick the winners

Conversely, future climate talks should zero in on solutions. Mentioning coal and — hopefully soon — other fossil fuels in formal negotiating texts is good. But why not mention solar photovoltaic, wind, and geothermal technologies as well? It’s easy to see how doing so will get contentious very quickly. Should large hydro and nuclear be on the list? What about carbon capture and storage?

There are no easy answers, but avoiding the issue altogether is not an answer either. Rapid progress on solar photovoltaic and other low-carbon technologies’ costs ought to be celebrated and supported.

Be prepared for rapid change

Climate conversations are often dominated by large-scale, negative tipping points. Smart policy focuses on protecting ourselves against just these nasty surprises. But they are not the only surprises.

Economic, political and societal change is similarly dominated by positive tipping points: For so long nothing changes, until suddenly everything does. It is clear that negative climate news is still outpacing policy and politics, but there are positive signs aplenty. Most importantly, when global politics, finance, and societal forces more broadly begin pushing in the right direction, that positive wave, too, will seem like a tsunami.

Many of us might wish for just that tsunami to happen, but it, too, will come with its own unique challenges. The key is to prepare now, so that at COP27 and beyond, we can create the conditions to channel it in a productive direction.

Then dad spent his last days as a teen in allied bomber command navigating airplanes stationed at modernday Myanmar. Surviving thanks to the Americas dad was in Keynes last class where he was taught that only a handful of system designers control what futures are possible. EconomistScotland.com AbedMooc.com

To help mediate such, question every world eventwith optimistic rationalism, my father's 2000 articles at The Economist interpret all sorts of future spins. After his 15th year he was permitted one signed survey a year. In the mid 1950s he had met John Von Neumann whom he become biographer to , and was the only journalist at Messina's's birth of EU. While dad's surveys can be catalogued/ "curricula-sorted" in different ways- we look at his future of places surveys especially Asia Rising starting with Japan 1962, and his entrepreneurial revolution surveys- would 40 year future stories compound sustainability or extinction? If you only have time for one download this one page tour of COLLABorations composed by Fazle Abed and networked by billion poorest village women offers clues to sustainability from the ground up like no white ruler has ever felt or morally audited. by London Scot James Wilson. Could Queen Victoria please chnage empire fro slavemaking to commonwealth? Some say Victoria liked the challenge James set her, others that she gave him a poison pill assignment. Thus James arrived in Calcutta 1860 with the Queens permission to charter a bank by and for Indian people. Within 9 months he died of diarrhea. 75 years later Calcutta was where the Young Fazle Abed grew up - his family accounted for some of the biggest traders. Only to be partitioned back at age 11 to his family's home region in the far north east of what had been British Raj India but was now to be ruled by Pakistan for 25 years. Age 18 Abed made the trek to Glasgow University to study naval engineering.

1943 marked centenary autobio of The Economist and my teenage dad Norman prepping to be navigator allied bomber command Burma Campaign -thanks to US dad survived, finished in last class of Keynes. before starting 5 decades at The Economist; after 15 years he was allowed to sign one survey a year starting in 1962 with the scoop that Japan (Korea S, Taiwan soon hk singapore) had found development mp0de;s for all Asian to rise. Rural Keynes could end village poverty & starvation; supercity win-win trades could celebrate Neumanns gift of 100 times more tech per decade (see macrae bio of von neumann)

Since 1960 the legacy of von neumann means ever decade multiplies 100 times more micro-technology- an unprecedented time for better or worse of all earthdwellers; 2025 timelined and mapped innovation exponentials - education, health, go green etc - (opportunities threats) to celebrating sustainability generation by 2025; dad parted from earth 2010; since then 2 journals by adam smith scholars out of Glasgow where engines began in 1760- Social Business; New Economics have invited academic worlds and young graduates to question where the human race is going - after 30 business trips to wealthier parts of Asia, through 2010s I have mainly sherpa's young journalist to Bangladesh - we are filing 50 years of cases on women empowerment at these web sites AbedMOOC.com FazleAbed.com EconomistPoor.com EconomistUN.com WorldRecordjobs.com Economistwomen.com Economistyouth.com EconomistDiary.com UNsummitfuture.com - in my view how a billion asian women linked together to end extreme poverty across continental asia is the greatest and happiest miracle anyone can take notes on - I havent had time to re-edit conversations on other parts of the world; that readers of 2025 report have kindly shared with me - so please note the rest of this column does not reflect my current maps of how or where the younger half of the world need to linkin to be the first sdg generation......its more like an old scrap book-


something that seemed exciting for humasns when I first heard about it but which the rest of the world may have passed by unless you find its still there! how do humans design futures?-in the 2020s decade of the sdgs – this question has never had more urgency. to be or not t be/ – ref to lessons of deming or keynes, or glasgow university alumni smith and 200 years of hi-trust economics mapmaking later fazle aded - we now know how-a man made system is defined by one goal uniting generations- a system multiplies connected peoples work and demands either accelerating progress to its goal or collapsing - sir fazle abed died dec 2020 - so who are his most active scholars climate adaptability where cop26 november will be a great chance to renuite with 260 years of adam smith and james watts purposes there is no point in connecting with system mentors unless you want to end poverty-specifically we interpret sdg 1 as meaning mext girl or boy born has fair chance at free happy an productive life as we seek to make any community a child is born into a thriving space to grow up between discover of new worlds in 1500 and 1945 systems got worse and worse on the goal eg processes like slavery emerged- and ultimately the world was designed around a handful of big empires and often only the most powerful men in those empires. 4 amazing human-tech systems were invented to start massive use by 1960 borlaug agriculture and related solutions every poorest village (2/3people still had no access to electricity) could action learn person to person- deming engineering whose goal was zero defects by helping workers humanize machines- this could even allowed thousands of small suppliers to be best at one part in machines assembled from all those parts) – although americans invented these solution asia most needed them and joyfully became world class at them- up to 2 billion people were helped to end poverty through sharing this knowhow- unlike consuming up things actionable knowhow multiplies value in use when it links through every community that needs it the other two technologies space and media and satellite telecoms, and digital analytic power looked promising- by 1965 alumni of moore promised to multiply 100 fold efficiency of these core tech each decade to 2030- that would be a trillion tmes moore than was needed to land on the moon in 1960s. you might think this tech could improve race to end poverty- and initially it did but by 1990 it was designed around the long term goal of making 10 men richer than 40% poorest- these men also got involved in complex vested interests so that the vast majority of politicians in brussels and dc backed the big get bigger - often they used fake media to hide what they were doing to climate and other stuff that a world trebling in population size d\from 1945 to 2030 also needed to map. so the good and bad news is we the people need to reapply all techs where they are only serving rich men and politicians od every party who have taken us to the brink of ending our species- these are the most exciting times to be alive - we the 3 generations children parents grandparents have until 2030 to design new system orbits gravitated around goal 1 and navigating the un's other 17 goals do you want to help/ 8 cities we spend most time helping students exchange sustainability solutions 2018-2019 BR0 Beijing Hangzhou: BR6 Geneva, Luxembourg, BR2 Dhaka, Delhi, BR1 Tokyo, Seoul
