Bob-Metcalfe-Internet-History-Applied-To-Solving-Energy_Imaginative and Thought provoking

Foresight-Hindsight by Bob Metcalfe - published slides freely available site Scribd as
"Bob Metcalfe-Internet-History-Applied-To-Solving-Energy_Imaginative and Thought provoking."

I have just added a new link to my RHS-right hand side menu in the Free Foresight books slides list.

The link to no less than 60 slides, related to the Internet's past contributions to the energy debates from the early days to the present day. Bob Metcalfe's approach suggests that Internet has a strong potential to contribute substantially to solving the current energy-climate crisis.

NB. It is now well established that "easy to harness fossil energy has reached it's "practical" limit on two counts (1) due to it's role in the man made contribution to global warming and (2) due to the limited resources of relatively easy to use fossil fuel, petrol gas and eventually the still dirtiest of all coal. (without CCS -carbon capture and sequestration which is today's situation and several countries notably China's et Al's "Option for the Future" ).
