Welcome to our all you can eat buffet of eco predicaments a remarkable achievement brought to you by our old friend technological innovation Our friend isn’t evil He’s a hilarious charismatic trickster who excels at making comical mistakes Every brilliant idea blows up in his face flattens him with a boulder or rockets him over a cliff He never gives up He never learns from his mistakes He never succeedsLike the trickster Americans are famous for our manic techno optimism Economic growth and material progress make us giddy with delight and seventy two percent of us believe that the benefits far outweigh the harms The planet doesn’t matter Technology will certainly enable the kids to have a somewhat life like experience riveted to their glowing screens A sane person can only conclude that we live in a world of illusionsTechno Fix by Michael and Joyce Huesemann takes us on a voyage through the hall of illusions It provides readers with magic x ray glasses that allow us to see right through heavy layers of encrusted bull excrement and clearly observe our way of life in its bare naked essence It delivers a super sized serving of precious common sense that should be a central part of every youngster’s rite of passage but isn’t The human species invented techno addiction a dangerous habit that seems impossible to uit; we always need bigger doses This addiction has put uite a kink in our evolutionary journey repeatedly blowing up in our face Science and technology are the mommy and daddy of most of our severe problems No other species has developed a fascination with endless growth The other critters have remained in balance for millions of years limited by predators and food supply nature’s brilliant time proven designThe Huesemanns note that we took a different path “Humans have used powerful technologies to escape these natural constraints first by using weapons to eliminate large predators then by inventing agriculture to increase food supplies and finally by employing sanitation and medical technologies to increase their chances for survival”Our devious experiments at controlling and exploiting nature have created a thousand nightmares We’ve zoomed right past seven billion giving the planet uite a fever Still the mainstream mindset is convinced that life is always getting better and better and that technology will overcome any challenges on our joyride to utopia We have no doubt economic growth can continue until the sun burns out and nothing will ever slow us down According to Huesemann’s Law of Techno Optimism “Optimism is inversely proportional to knowledge”The mainstream mindset is so weird — it celebrates the benefits of technology and steps around the stinky messes pretending not to see them Innovation is never a free lunch Every benefit has costs and it’s impossible to predict every unintended conseuence When serious problems are discovered we tend to resolve them with additional innovation which generates additional unintended conseuences We can delay paying the bills for our mistakes but every debt must and will be paid It’s something like uicksandA century ago the benefits of the automobile were immediately apparent and the staggering unintended conseuences were not This technology has caused huge damage to our health our families and communities the ecosystem and the unborn Car problems are still growing as billions of people in the developing world are eager to live as foolishly as Americans do The car and the television are our two biggest techno bloopers according to the HuesemannsFoolish fantasies are the deliberate conseuence of the mass media and advertising which are tremendously successful at persuading folks that the purpose of life is to transfer as much stuff as possible from nature to landfills “Needs” are what is necessary for survival and health like food shelter and community “Wants” are things we have no need for stuff we have sudden impulses to acuire They are infinite in number constantly changing generally frivolous and often uselessThe path to consumer happiness and high status involves devoting a substantial portion of our lives to doing various sorts of work For many the work is less than meaningful or satisfying The reward is trade tokens which are used to acuire wants and each purchase provides a brief consumer orgasm The thrill is soon gone the gnawing returns and we are compelled to go back to the mall and get another fix No matter how hard we thrash our credit cards we never arrive at our destination — wholeness and contentment “We are chasing a mirage thereby remaining forever dissatisfied and unhappy” In the last 50 years rates of depression in the US have increased tenfold and continue to rise rates among the Amish are far lowerDepression is also a result of our mobility and isolation Until the industrial era most people spent their entire lives in stable communities and formed long term social bonds with the people around them Before the hell of automobiles daily life included pleasant face to face encounters with others Before the hell of glowing screens people spent little time sitting aloneLuckily technology has a daffy response for any problem It’s far easier to develop techno solutions than social solutions Rather than attempting the social challenge of creating a way of life that isn’t so lonely and dreary technology can simply chase away depression and anxiety with happy pills It’s easier to build new road systems than it is to convince people to give up their cars It’s easier to provide life saving surgeries than it is to encourage people to vacate their couches and eat a healthy dietThe Huesemanns harbor special loathing for the medical industry It’s extremely expensive and remarkably ineffective Intelligent low cost preventative care is not the focus New treatments are constantly being developed The dead generate no profits so we keep very sick people alive on machines; we transplant organs Death must be delayed by any means necessary regardless of cost “If it can be done it should be done” We need to remember that old age and death are normal and naturalThe last section of the book provides the theoretical solutions to our predicaments This plan reuires world leaders that will eagerly cooperate in rapidly and radically reconfiguring the way we live and think It reuires a humankind that is spiritually connected to nature people who abhor pollution and mindless consumption folks willing to make enormous sacrifices in order to ensure the wellbeing of future generations of all species Energy will be renewable non renewable resources will be shunned and all wastes will be safely biodegradable The Huesemanns warn us that the transition might not be easy I really enjoyed this book It's not the most riveting writing he's extremely detail oriented and tends to use the same sentence structure repeatedly etc and it's not told as a story but rather as an information dump but all that said it's fascinating stuff The main thesis is something many of us already know and that is that technology is part of the heat engine that is human industrial civilization and as such will always always contribute to the problem and in aggregate will do so than it helps solve the problem So all technology at least in its current incarnations in aggregate will lead us closer to the end game of a livable planet Much of the book is spent discussing why this is the case and some of the book is spent offering solutions Overall the author has a plan similar to what you'd expect no technology unless we can recycle reuse all waste or in such small uantities that the earth system can absorb it safely Not gonna happen One gets the impression the author doesn't really believe it will happen either but feels obligated to lay it out just in case? Yeah Right Two very valuable things one comes away with are a breakdown of the analysis reuired to understand and analyze a given technology's impact which he recommends we do in depth at all stages of a technology's development including at the idea stage; and a long list of uestions to help you think deeply about the content in each chapter which serve as great inspiration for uestioning everything our industrial civilization does Good stuffI read this book because I have been feeling distinctly anti technology lately which as a computer geek by training and career has put me in an uncomfortable spot But I saw it coming and well I can't go back in time and change my college major Plus I do so love to watch NASA and similar organizations using all their wonderful technology to clarify the crisis we're in and help us understand the Earth system So many people seem to think we can technology our way out of this problem we have created for ourselves This book lays out the proof for why that is a futile path I liked this book a lot I think it is not an easy topic to discuss given the blind faith most modern societies have in technology The problem is that technology is a vicious cycle; we pretend to solve problems caused by technology with technology with technology with technology and so on This normally would not make sense for most of us However the authors highlight some reasons why this happens For instance there is what they call the myth of value neutrality ie the belief that technology is not inherently harmful but that the use and the users are the ones who make it so This reminds me of something American gun supporters say all the time it is not guns who kill people it is people who kills peopleThere is also the current economic system and the pursuit of limitless profits Technology is of course a great component of this growth and those who own it just need to make incremental usually useless changes many times called innovations to make old technology useless and incompatible thus creating the need for More or less recent attempts to decrease the impact of technology have resulted in the belief that efficiency will lead to sustainable societies however the authors highlight what is called the Jevons Paradox which says that any gain in efficiency in on end will result in consumption at the other end Efficiency just results in relative decoupling but absolute consumption increases partly because this is what the economic system wants and because of the modern economies of scaleThe authors also provide the reader with interesting moral uestions about eg the need to consume less and strengthen our bonds with society the need to go local the influence that television has on families and infividuals and the need to accept death as a natural part of lifeI also liked the critical view the authors have on science and their discussions about the need to put pressure on the ethics and responsibilities associated with the creation of knowledgeI have heard some criticisms about the pessimistic nature of the narrative in this book although in my opinion the authors are being straight and clear As a researcher in the field I think what we need is sincere and straight forward facts and food for thought in order to react to what is happening to our species and to the ones that support our life in this planetI agree that the last parts are a bit strange since they suggest the use of technology although a better one as a solution to the problems they discussed themselves The goodness of technology is tricky because of the cultural diversity our planet has and the different conditions each one of its cultures is subjected to God was never our savior and neither will it be rational science and technology who will save the dayThis civilization with all it's technological advancements which is largely limited to most in the developed if that is doomed The uestion is how soon is that coming Very good book that even experts and the intelligentsia will do well to read There is tendency among these self proclaimed rationalists to engage in magical thinking that some magical technology will manifest itself and the rationalist's way of bringing about this coming of technical Jesus is through price signals on the marketTo echo the words of Rupert Reed this civilization is finished I thought this was one of the better books that I've read The book shows how so called techno fixes can make matters worse and that there is always a price to be payed It shows problems with our current culture and system and by offering solutions it gives us hope It doesn't shy away from telling things as it is either the green dream of non renewable energy sources; while part of the solution will still reuire sacrifices and isn't without its own environmental impactThe book is a great companion piece to Antifragile for several reasons1 Both talk how removing elements from the system might be better than adding elements to the systems via negative versus via positiva2 Both books talk about iatrogenics this book goes into depth about iatrogenics while it was Antifragile and another book Why we get Sick which first introduced me to this conceptI hold the view that the healthcare system in my country will someday blow up there is much energy being put into it than comes out of it3 This book has a similar idea as that of skin of the game from Antifragile by having decisions makers and so on far removed from the conseuences of their policies ie the lack of skin in the game makes them care less about these conseuences or simply does not expose them to itI recently read The systems view of life and have to say I like Techno fix slightly I would recommend both I thought Techno fix was slightly to the point while The systems view of life explained a lot I feel wasn't all necessary There was a lot of background talk in the The systems view of life and some of it I was already aware of Both are well written and important books however thus I recommend both This book is excellent The Huesemanns are husband and wife both are scientists but in different disciplines Most of my reading these days is as research for my next book which will basically argue that we need an economic and social paradigm shift away for the exponential growth debt based consumption driven path which leads to civilisational collapse if we continue this disastrous path Often I encounter the argument that technology will somehow save us the cavalry will arrive just in time to save the besieged wagon train This book shows how the dream of technology based rescue is fatally flawed As this book argues business interests often view nature as an unlimited source of wealth if all artificial constraints imposed by government agencies and environmental organisations were removed However this is but one of the self serving fallacies that are prolonging the doomed paradigm Economic growth cannot continue on a finite planet because of ecological constraints Technology will not change this fact Though technology is often promoted in the media as being solely beneficial this is not true As the Huesemanns argue despite the fact that all technologies are value laden the myth of value neutrality continues to be perpetuated Moreover negative side effects are inheritantly unavoidable This book is well written has lots of scientific peer reviewed sources in the footnotes and is very persuasive Highly recommended Tony Smyth author Fukushima and the coming Tokyo Earthuake and what it will mean for fragile world economy The first two thirds of this book is a well written and thorough critiue of the technological system The authors make convincing and well articulated arguments against a variety of different technologies medical energy etc while at the same time stepping back to look at the value systems embedded in the technological systemHowever the end is disappointing as the authors argue in favor of so called responsible and manageable technologies increased regulations and the like After such a poignant critiue in the first portion of the book it's hard to believe that the answer could really be technology This book made me think about my life of knee jerk support of science my whole life I still think most corporations are evil not intentionally but they F things up by their very nature I will continue to read and explore to determine if it's time to pull the driveway in get a gun etc or whether it's too late ?
