We never really understood the transition before : Watch it

Our project By2Bay.bike
was born with our irrepressible desire to move from being a "spectator" of change to an "actor" of transition. A great actor of this transition is the polytechnicien Jean-Marc Jancovici (Partner, www.carbone4.com President, www.theshiftproject.org, Professor, www.mines-paristech.fr , Blog www.jancovici.com, LinkedIn: www.linkedin.com/in/jean-marc-jancovici/

The latter gave a magnificent lecture during the inaugural lesson at Sciences-Po Paris 2019.  It lasts about 90', but today, these are minutes that had a return on investment far beyond any financial calculation.   Gery and I have become "shifters" in his project and thanks to the generosity of our friend Eric Hautemont, we can present here the lecture in its English subtitled version.

Watch it, you won't be disappointed. Far from it.

Plasticity – Flexibility – Resiliency

Well, this all started well.  (french version below) Géry and I had to leave in 20 days to cross the USA with our bike, to meet those who are working to find solutions, alternatives, new ways to live in harmony on this planet. COVID 19 has caused us to revise our plans.  No possible plane for Géry, no solar-bike for me, no hotels or campground available, and no possibility for meeting with all those problem solvers.  So, it was a bit "should I stay, or should I go now"? We both decided to go together but separately.  We are going to travel two continents at the same time: America and Europe.  Some would see it as greed, we see resiliency. Having lost my co-driver and the "superbike", I turned to what was "close to me" (short circuit ;-): my son Léopold (21 years old) and my everyday bike. We will be leaving next week, with a sum of compromises that gives, in the end, a rather cheerful cocktail.  My wife Corine will accompany us to pro
A solution Now. I would like to share what really "made my weekend" last week.  The confinement in which we live has led me to Netflix😔.   I was a little bit less reluctant to go since it complied with the European Commission's injunctions by reducing its bandwidth by 25%!  It’s insane to imagine that Netflix accounts for 15% of the global downlink traffic according to the data of the American network specialist, Sandvine…   But on Netflix, I discovered a magnificent triptych: Inside Bill's Brain 🙌.  The third part is more specifically about the search for climate change solutions.   I discover something really exciting: a solution design exists today and is ready for prototype construction program.  It's nuclear, and it's called "Travelling Wave Reactor ® " , engineered by  TerraPower. For decades, there hasn't been any innovation in this field, and in 2006, Bill Gates got the guts to disrupt that field. Nuclear power is a kind of mo
