Are We Headed For The "Brown Tech" Future?
I came back around to this website, "Future Scenarios. Org", from a link on a group I'm reading. There was a mention of "brown tech" in a post.
Brown tech as opposed to green tech, assumes that we will use as much of our existing technology and resources to cushion and/or stave off the coming collapse of civilization. Its the scenario I most believe will happen (or is happening). As much as I'd like to see us embrace more greener technologies, the entrenched corporate and governmental marriage focused on profit above all, makes that unlikely.
Their "4 Scenarios" is worth the read.
