“I believe that to meet the challenge of our times, human beings will have to develop a greater sense of universal responsibility. We must all learn to work not just for our own self, family, or nation but for the benefit of all humankind. Universal responsibility is the key to human survival. It is the best foundation for world peace, the equitable use of natural resources, and through concern for future generations, the proper care of the environment.”
His Holiness, The Dalai Lama (From A Buddhist Declaration on Climate Change)

Denis Pombriant is a writer who focuses on disruptive technological innovations and the economy. Since 2000 he has researched and written about major changes in the software industry including software as a service (SaaS), cloud computing, social networking, and artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). His work often includes analyses of the interaction between new technology and society through the lenses of social sciences such as economics and sociology.

In The Age of Sustainability, Pombriant examines some of the social implications of climate change and peak oil and the challenges and opportunities these disruptions pose for civilization. As fossil fuel supplies dwindle the question of adopting alternatives gains importance and urgency. Advanced technologies that have become available only recently hold the key to stabilizing climate, reinventing the energy paradigm, and preparing civilization for curbing the population bubble.

Above all, Pombriant is a hopeful person for what should become an optimistic time.
