Science & Technology
Sublime science focusses fully on realizing the transition into a Sublime World to mitigate climate collapse and adapt to climate change. For the next fifty or so years, science (as well as all other human enterprises) needs to sideline everything else and embrace this work above every other work. Shelf Mars to save Earth.
Climate science needs to be taken seriously by the governments and climate action implemented immediately at the required massive scale. Priority must be given to the most promising and least potentially damaging climate solutions like biochar amendment and ecosystem restoring (rewilding, protection, restoration and expansion of forests, mangroves, peat, grasslands, top soil, etc.), greenhouse gas emission reduction (transitioning to renewable energy, massive reduction in meat consumption, fast fashion, military footprint, etc.) and global cooling through cloud seeding by afforestation and rewilding (harmless natural geo-engineering).
At the same time, we need to develop or revert to sublime technologies that are fully renewable and most efficient in each individual setting of climate and society, be it urban solutions for green cities or rural solutions for eco villages. Such low footprint sublime tech solutions are important parts of our new sublime lifestyle. They include everything from creating eco-friendly soap (or using soap nuts) to biogas production from manure and compost and urban rooftop farming.
International standards for minimizing eco footprint (especially greenhouse gas emissions) have to be implemented locally and globally. For example, Sublime Mobile Communication would change the hazardous and Earth-destructive way we nowadays unnecessarily allow unlimited layers of mobile network providers, each creating extra infrastructure, eco load and radiation. If the same energy is properly distributed, it can be used to make one or two networks with better prices and coverage.
High radiation towers are only needed to cover certain rural areas without dense housing. In housing areas, high radiation towers are prohibited to give people the freedom to live radiation-free or radiation-low. Entire communities can decide to remain radiation-free by implementing smart radiation-free technology such as mobiles connecting to net stations of station grids through optical connection or communicating through a network of local stations that are connected to the web with high-speed optical cables and that recognize your presence by you checking in through a magnetic badge or low-radiation technology.
Other international standards for longevity and compatibility of products must be applied across the palette. Companies must include five years of warranty and ten years of updates in the price of mobile devices, for example. This automatically leads to the industry competing to create more long-lasting devices. Compatibility, exchangeability and availability of periphery like chargers, data cables, batteries, storage devices and all spare parts must be guaranteed across all brands and countries to reduce unnecessary eco load and social costs. This principle can be applied to any products, for example traditional Japanese wooded buildings.
