It was great! A really good summary of the climate change, an overview of current technologies (both available and future) and perhaps the most interesting- the obstacles that we also need to take into account when developing new innovations (socio-economic) How can the government help better? How can companies be more focused? How do we need to rethink our roles in the society?

3.5/5

This difference is not the same everywhere as it depends on which technology is replaced, and which solution is chosen.
