Accelerating Technology Adoption Is The Key To Solving Climate Change

Background:  The ideas mentioned in this article were significantly sharpened by participation on a panel on sustainability held by Florida Polytechnic University’s Executive Leadership Initiative (ELI). Special thanks to my fellow panelists Sean Kidney (Climatebonds) and Michael Hawes (Fulbright) for a very interesting discussion.

Transportation technology has always been central to the organization of society because of its direct impact on very important daily functions such as education, work, commerce (especially daily necessities such as food), entertainment and medicine. Associated with the technology are the input energy sources and enabling infrastructure which often requires significant investment.  Finally, these transportation technologies have also been central to the sustainability concerns of the day. 

This article argues that sustainability problems have historically been solved by the accelerated introduction of the next generation of technology, and governments would be well advised to place their focus
