Obsolescent Heresies

Abstract:
With regards to biotechnology, resilience, flexibility and innovation are definitely possible, but probably not quite yet. Brand argues that genetic engineering has the potential to be a major tool for dealing with global warming's effects, and he's not the only one making claims of the sort. There's no consensus Bright Green position on environmental biotech, but there are plenty of voices calling for the responsible use of biotech (and nanotech) as a way of combatting climate and ecosystem disruption; even those folks arguing for holding off on bioengineering solutions do so out of concern that we still have more to learn before we can undertake such solutions responsibly.
