From the scottish viewpoint the first industrial age of 180 years of sharing machines failed ending in two world wars..In 1945 humans agreed to try again starting up the united nations and various post industrial technologies. We see the 2020s as most exciting time to be alive because three quarters of a century of uniting nations allows us to map are we designing a hi-tech connected world aligned with nature's systems including how she governs climate and health. more on scottish notes on whether the human race is sustainable are here; including our invitation to bring a catalogue of 1000 leaders/projects of AI for sdgs

 2021 offers a whole new world of amerucan connections starting with state department secretary blinken 

market by market it will be fascinating to see - is the new world of pharma to be dominated by those who share life saving drugs at cost or will it go back to 2010s when much of big pharma spent its time on addictining peoles to opiuum - highly profitable for a few global corporates - tragic for we the peoples

it seems that wall street believes post covid will make the biggest western corporations bigger- this seems to me to conflict with anyone or everyone who wants 21stc youth to be the first sdg generation

coming from 260 years of adam smith network debates on the value of machines and humans whats the odds that by cop26 nov 2021 the whole new new world will include a win-win america instead of 7 no trumps

1 why are legislators always punishing small enterprises in favor of big corporte interests
2 why have all parties failed to ask each decade - what change do americans need next 100 fold moore tech to thrive? changes to commuting/office work, changes to education,-no debt for productive youth, changes to big shopping malls, how tech could make community health care ever more affordable, how tech could make everyone safer
3 von neunann's last 2 questions in 1957- which patents are good/bad? how will the human brain change as more and more work is done with artifcial brains that can crunch trillion times more data than humans
4 how does leadership change when more and more questions involve local community sustainability/diversity not one national law that made sense when horse was fastest way to share messages or assistance
5 true media:  if we 4% of human beings are to be the nation 96% love trading with mosts what machine and human knowhow do we need to lead in openly sharing without borders
6 how do we design our democracy so that if rest of world spends millions of hours negotiating how to value nature, we dont get ruled by a leader who on his own tears up everyone else's work

possibilities 1995
around 1995 the whole world sated being inspired by bill gates stories of internet highways and the first 6 years of tim berner lees worldwide web -tbl moved to mit to progress this from xx
what amazes me is how narrow us venture capitalism became - it seemed to be about ads and selling people as a different crossroads from education tech or changing industries that had become big but lazy in the pre digital world

listen to some examples - here's the chinese american founder of zoom - when he heard bill gates talk about the net in 1994 he spent 3 years and before his 7th visa application was successful- what would anyone in 2020 have done without zoom's eric yuan?

or there are the stories of the quadir brothers 1  2  3 - who believed that bangladesh could make different smarter us of mobile phones than americans- they started what has become the world of leapfroging tech partnerships ending poverty

or consider the story of jack ma who happened to be on his first trip to usa as a translator in 1995 -in seattle he saw the lunch of amazon ecommerce - how many hundreds of millions of jobs can china create with small village enterprises once the web comes to china

these were all questions of building economies by or for our peoples not just how much money can be extracted from a venture... a diifferent but exciting question- what happens in places that believes huanising tech for the sustaible youth is about exploring how education generates economies not vice versa- lets have a look at some education systems that didnt wait for the virus to practice virtual learning modes

11++ ai - 3 of 11 ai subjects every teacher needs to explore ai vaccine ai sports ai climate

 why humanising ai needs to rid teaching of 11+ mindset

Any peoples who follow the education system designed for english language speakers by administrators of british empire need to be concerned with urgently transforming its examination assumptions. can they sustain any child, any community builder, mother earth? -its strange how all of the top 5 sdgs must never be siloised - 5 village women 4 livelihood education 3 health for all 2 food and water security for all; 1 wherever next girl is born will the global village community love her enough to give her a chance to thrive- we have the technology but have we lost the humanity

Back when britain ruled the world, it was decided to test 



purpose of british empire's 11 plus exam- which kids went to school after 11;  Its relevant 

to ask what's not in the 11plus-  in this case what you systemically measure isnt just the behsviours you get but what generates exponentially 

talents 11+ excludes from valuing youth are varied but beging by seeing

artistic talents are not integral to 11 plus; emotional caring talents are not - the 11 plus was the forerunner of iq tests- it looked for kids who would be convenient to classroom  teach subjects which only had one correct answer - kids who never question bureaucrats decisions and so could extend british empire laws and money-issuing all over the empires world- kids who would never dare ask are mother nature's gifts to our place opposite in any way to a big city in a small island ( where extremely unequal power was grabbed unless media was very smart and openly free -by and for the people- what public world service media was intended to be when bbc radio was born but which politicians soon destroyed....)

lets start with 3 examples - ai vaccines -- ai superstars;; ai climate

ai vaccines- help us map the vaccine race - we will need to move this map by june 2021 when google is withdrawing this ai mapping tool as too primitive - as of time of biden's election there are maybe a dozen western vaccines - pfizer says it hopes to be 90% efficiet in ending the virus; 2 injections are needed; the vaccine needs storing at very cold temperatures to keep it safe- we will sure need a lot of ai to map its distribution effectively to part of the 7.5 billion humans who need a solution

moderna says it looks as if it is 95% effective-as of 16 november we humans need to check- assume its got similar mapping challenge to distribute

people as opposite in mindset as gates, bush, and theceo of google.org said in 2005 that ai of vaccinnes would need to be seen as top human species priority- the question of why was nothing globally and locally done about this to prevent covid19 is one every politician should be explaining -in that sense the virus challenge is a climactic challenge and an education one- when we design topoics of 11++ test we are desiging what teachers of 11 year olds should be at least free to encourage curiosity on- here's a clue instead of education being about only subjects with one right examination answer - 21st c human shooling needs to be about learning - learning is exactly what machine intel cant do until its goven data; in other words the most valuable resource in hi-tech hi-trust worlds is data that is valued as a commons and which is so life critical that we need it be be private at an individual leve but aggregated so that individuals do not become spreaders of death- back in 2008 when the western world's banking systems failed to be transparent enough to stop fraud spreaders and bad rankings agencies- someoe with a japanese sounding name satoshi invented a tool in line with my dads timeline for fintech - its called blockchain - the monetary uses of it yet still havent been worked out by central bankers or big tech but to see why its essential to the safey of any network consider australia's electricity grid; australia is a huge country with lots of desert- when a natural event knocked down even one electricity pole it could take a lot of seaching for whever it was in the desert- today australian electricty poles talk to each other through communications chips- basically each pole pings its neiigbors- ping me back to sho you are working- the whole provides instant reporting if any pole goes dead

ai sports and superstars- one pf the stranfge things is sports went global before anything else- literally the 1964 tokyo olympics satellite broadcast - this meant that sportspeople soon had opportunity to become world famous if they won the olympics or earned a world record; but while i love sports its absurd that inceasing the only celebrities kids of the era of 100 times more tech per decade had access to were commercialsed round sports or sexy music. how do we make sure kids have as many last mile heroines of health and other social actio-data connections not just spectating and consuming trivial pursuits - more at www.economistsports.net - nb the point is data and communications platforms made 20th celebrities; today we urgently need to twin whos famous with whom the sdg generation need to be famous- as teachers of eleven year olds need to be as demanding as youth in searcxhing knowhow heroes- have a look at some of the fans of ban ki-moon - he is trying to help teachers intro 2 missing curricula- empowering youth t be community engaged and delivering them loca franchise solutions mapping a world of climate adaptability and community action networking

ai climate - why because we are mapping back glasgow cop26 nov 2021 - a set of exponential timelines for solutions the world's most powerful nations agreed on after hundreds of thousands of hours of work until a guy called trump spent 4 years playing 7 no trumps with all of humanity's most urgent life shaping goals- tell us if you are sending a delegate to glasgow or wish to host a zoom event on way to glasgow- chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk volunteer smithian co-networker -Macrae you tube period: to be or to trump -that is the question kamala harris has so little time to represent

is there a green network across osun colleges who could be zooming on these dates- when i say osun i mean its connections with inet, young scholars, unctad summer school, potentially green ai run by the itu part of geneva

-we have a parallel challenge on health which does back to the years 2000-5- at that time jim kim connected soros gates boston brac in health agendas needed across worlds 7.5 billion people -if thats not reconnected in sync with coming forward from covid it wont have valued youth

In climate news today...

Tim Quinson's Good Business  

Just five of the 39 largest oil and gas companies have announced carbon-reduction targets that match levels needed to avoid a 2-degree Celsius temperature increase. And only 20 have taken initial steps to disclose how they plan to lower emissions produced by both their operations and electricity use, known respectively as Scope 1 and Scope 2.

Put those facts together and it may seem like most of the world’s biggest polluters aren’t serious about climate change. The list of passive offenders includes four of the top-five ranked energy companies by stock market value: Chevron Corp., Exxon Mobil Corp., PetroChina Co. and Saudi Aramco.

Eni SpA, Total SA, Reliance Industries Ltd., Galp Energia SGPS SA and Woodside Petroleum Ltd. are the only companies that have targets in-line with the International Energy Agency’s Sustainable Development Scenario (SDS) for 2030, said Eric Kane, senior ESG analyst at Bloomberg Intelligence, which has introduced a “carbon transition score” to evaluate, compare and rank how companies are cutting their carbon intensity.

European oil and gas companies’ emission reduction pledges fall below the goals of the Paris agreement.

The score allows investors to measure oil and gas companies’ progress in reducing their operational emissions intensity, Kane said. It also shows how they are positioned relative to each other and the IEA benchmark, assuming they are successful in achieving their publicly stated greenhouse gas reduction targets, he said.

“Despite the risks, many companies have yet to develop reduction strategies,” Kane said.

Of the 39 energy firms, just eight have established plans to lower Scope 3 emissions, which are generated when their customers burn fossil fuels, a figure that comprises about 80% of total greenhouse gases at large oil companies. That suggests most companies in the industry are likely to face significant challenges as the economy shifts away from carbon-intensive energy, Kane said.

The European integrated oil companies have set more ambitious targets than competitors from other regions, he said. Italy’s Eni aims to have net-zero “upstream emissions” by 2030 and net-zero emissions for the entire company by 2040. Royal Dutch Shell Plc, BP Plc, OMV AG, Repsol SA and Santos Ltd. have said they’ll aim for net zero by at least 2050.

Net zero refers to achieving an overall balance between emissions produced and emissions taken out of the atmosphere.

France’s Total, Portugal’s Galp Energia, Norway’s Equinor SA, India’s Reliance Industries and BP have the best carbon transition scores, according to Bloomberg Intelligence. Valero Energy Corp., Formosa Petrochemical Corp., Indian Oil Corp. Gazprom Neft PJSC and Phillips 66 have the worst, because they have yet to even set carbon reduction targets and provide little or no information about their recent emissions performance, Kane said.

By 2030, oil and gas companies must reduce their operational Scope 1 and 2 emissions intensity by 44% as compared with 2018 levels to be aligned with limiting warming below 2 degrees Celsius. The IEA estimates that a majority of these reductions can be achieved by cutting methane emissions. That means oil production needs to drop to 84.3 million barrels a day by 2030 (compared with 95.4 million in 2018), while natural gas production must increase to 3,998 billion cubic meters (as compared with 3,937 in 2018), according to the IEA.

Given that Scope 1 and 2 emissions from companies account for almost 4% of global emissions, the failure to meet these targets could have a significant impact on the environment, Kane warned.
