In this episode, we meet with Associate Professor of Geometallurgy at the Geological Survey of Finland, Simon Michaux.
Why do humans ignore important mineral and material limits that will effect human futures? Michaux reveals how we are “minerals blind” — and the consequences of this myopia.
To shed light on the effects of our minerals blindness, Michaux explores the disconnect between experts in renewable energy and economic and government leaders.
Michaux offers individual strategies for us to overcome our energy and minerals blindness. How can we learn to adapt in order to overcome the coming challenges?
