02, Education, Science & Technology
Brief Video Description:
Education, Science & Technology form the bedrock of our society. How solid is that bedrock? How should we be looking to grow and evolve?
This video goes through my own experience of education, I'm a little bit too much of a lay person to give more than a subjective take in this regard, but I've given it serious thought and have some questions to ask.
In the second part, I explain there are a few things I could have decided to focus on for Science & Technology, but I choose to go into an area that I feel has poor public understanding and something I started taking very seriously myself and considered changing careers to go into the area myself, some years ago. I talk about the importance of abundant, clean, cheap energy for the human race and how we might solve existing problems and provide that at the same time.

I don't know Peter Thiel well, but I came across his speech and found some of it pretty compellling, a view I don't often hear articulated and one that I feel should be heard and considered:

Anti Nuclear and Pro Nuclear seems like a false dichotomy to me, but these people are clearly passionate about what they believe:
