Other problem-solving techniques Concisely stated, a genetic algorithm or GA for short is a programming technique that mimics biological evolution as a problem-solving strategy.
If you are a sharp thinker but not that analytical, try this essay on Mastering the Science of Striking at the Root. Now, after you've read one of the above items, consider one of the very latest solutions.
The Climate Reality Project, founded and chaired by former Vice President and Nobel Laureate Al Gore, is dedicated to unleashing a global cultural movement demanding action on the climate crisis. Despite overwhelming international scientific consensus on climate change, the global community still lacks the resolve to implement meaningful solutions.
The Climate Reality Project exists to forge an unwavering bedrock of impassioned support necessary for urgent action. With that foundation, together we will ignite the moral courage in our leaders to solve the climate crisis. The Climate Reality Project employs cutting-edge communications and grassroots engagement tools to break the dam of inaction and raise the profile of the climate crisis to its proper state of urgency.
With a global movement more than 5 million strong and a grassroots network of Climate Leaders trained by Chairman Al Gore, we stand up to denial, press for solutions, and spread the truth about climate change to empower our leaders to solve the climate crisis.
If you've grasped what our material says, you will immediately be able to see that the Climate Reality Project's approach is simply not going to work.
It's basically a "spread the truth" approach. This is no different from past approaches, all of which have failed.
Because "spread the truth" pushes on a low leverage point. It attempts to resolve an intermediate cause the universal fallacious paradigm of Growth Is Good rather than the root cause high political deception effectiveness of change resistance.
You don't believe this? The Corporate Assault on Environmentalism. Be sure to read the link to the Global Spin Reviewwhich explains how corporate spin works. It's working like a charm, so well that attempts to "spread the truth" have not worked in the past. Nor will they work in the future. That "the global community still lacks the resolve to implement meaningful solutions" is a symptom of change resistance.
Al Gore's project is trying to overcome change resistance. Wouldn't it help if the project promoted solutions that were directed toward resolving the root cause of change resistance?
After all, all problems arise from their root causes. If this makes sense, then see the glossary entry on More of the Truth. That's the solution strategy The Climate Reality Project is using. Welcome to a whole new way of thwinking!
Imagine routinely solving whatever portion of the sustainability problem you're working on. Click on the photo to watch the five minute video of Scott covering the highlights of the paper and its context. With the same powerful tool business uses to routinely solve its toughest problems: PDF The paper is jargon free and an easy read since its target audience is all serious environmentalists.
The key conclusion is that popular solutions don't work because they do not resolve root causes. Instead, they attempt in vain to resolve intermediate causes, like externalized costs or the universal fallacy that Growth Is Good. The analysis found four main root causes.
Finding these led to discovery that the environmental sustainability problem is itself a symptom of a deeper problem: This is the real problem to solve. Until it's solved the work of environmentalists is largely fruitless.
This is a highly controversial and counter-intuitive conclusion, but it's well supported by a mountain of analysis, modeling, references, and examples in the publications at Thwink.
Using the results of the analysis a solution strategy is presented. Twelve solution elements are required to resolve the four root causes. Because each solution is aimed at resolving a specific known root cause, you can't miss.
You hit the bullseye every time. It's like shooting at a target ten feet away. The bullseye is the root cause. That's why Root Cause Analysis is so fantastically powerful. If you know where the bullseye is, your solutions can't miss!
If this makes sense then:Ah, but super-human AI is not the only way Moloch can bring our demise. How many such dangers can your global monarch identify in time?
EMs, nanotechnology, memetic contamination, and all the other unknown ways we’re running to the bottom. I felt like a burden.
Then I discovered John Stuart Mill and Milton Friedman and they said “People deserve to determine the course of their own lives” and “you own yourself” and stuff like that and I started entertaining the idea that I deserved to live, by virtue of being human.

The rhetoric of innovation is often about fun and creativity, but the reality is that innovation can be very taxing and uncomfortable. The Jargon File contains a bunch of definitions of the term ‘hacker’, most having to do with technical adeptness and a delight in solving problems and overcoming limits.
If you want to know how to become a hacker, though, only two are really relevant. There is a community, a shared culture, of expert programmers and networking wizards that traces its history back through decades to the. Introduction Though perhaps best known throughout the world for his science fiction, Isaac Asimov was also regarded as one of the great explainers of science.
