First, the bad news. Posted yesterday, this image from Arctic News illustrates the unprecedented crisis that we are facing as the Arctic sea ice continues to disappear.

. At the end of his post, Carana included a 4-minute video by environmental scientist, Dr. Guy McPherson, former tenured professor at the University of Arizona.
As usual, McPherson's message offers us little hope for survival beyond 3 to 5 years. But for me, I choose to believe that we still have a chance to fix the mess we have created, and I have added a few new slides to my presentation on that topic.
Now for the "good news" idea that I am now talking about in my presentations. It is all about leveraging the power of artificial intelligence (AI) to help show us the way to long-term sustainability of our ecosystem and our species.
Take a look below at the latest two slides on that topic that I have added to my public presentations. Leading up to these two slides, I talk about things that must be done, but admit that "how" to do those things is "above my pay grade."
To that end, I talk about that "pay grade" statement and float the idea that AI might be able to help the human race find its way to a sustainable future. In order to do that, we've got to get bias, prejudice, greed, power and religious differences out of the decision making process.
For the crucial decision-making ahead, we must rely on scientific knowledge--something that has been doubling every 10 to 20 years for the past two centuries.
In a nutshell, perhaps a consortium of G20 countries can appoint a scientific team to load all of the critical survival data in the world into an AI network and ask for a detailed answer to this question at the bottom of this first slide:
"What MUST we do NOW
to survive and thrive indefinitely?"
The last point on the second slide includes the kinds of AI generated consequences we will face if we don't take urgent action now.
After crunching the mountains of data entered by the scientific team, this is the kind of AI action plan that I am envisioning:
