1 An engineered world
Imagine it’s the future, say fifty years from now. Humans have been forced to devise ways of minimising the impact of climate change. If we are to determine the future, we should first try to imagine how it could be.
Activity 1 Imagining an engineered world
What climate change challenges do you imagine we are facing? What technologies and processes will we be using to minimise the impact? (Be bold in your ideas!)
It is important we can imagine ourselves in the future world, to be able to make decisions. As you will see, engineering the climate can seem a very distant idea, and some of the technologies seem exciting and almost unreal.
