Peyton Williams is a chemistry/pre-med major in college with top ranking in a class of 4,507 students in Sophomore year. In the summer between high school and college, he studied a book about the most advanced nuclear reactor in the United States and wrote a report, "Reactors of the Future: The Integral Fast Reactor." This technology was stopped in the United States and France for the time being, by anti-nuclear advocates and two U.S. Presidents who bend to their will. Russia is going full speed ahead with fast neutron reactors. See Peyton Williams' report on both websites: go-nuclear.org and efn-usa.org. The world needs excellent students like him in all endeavors.
To say that the Earth is a human planet becomes truer every day. Humans are made from the Earth, and the Earth is remade by human hands. Many earth scientists express this by stating that the Earth has entered a new geological epoch: the Anthropocene, the Age of Humans.
As scholars, scientists, campaigners, and citizens, we write with the conviction that knowledge and technology, applied with wisdom, might allow for a good, or even great, Anthropocene. A good Anthropocene demands that humans use their growing social, economic, and technological powers to make life better for people, stabilize the climate, and protect the natural world.
Stewart Brand, the man who helped usher in the environmental movement in the 1960s and '70s has been rethinking his positions on cities, nuclear power, genetic modification and geo-engineering. See this video recorded talk at the U.S. State Department in 2009 for amazing information about people in urban environments around the world.
