Highlights:

  • What I do believe is that it’s too late to avert catastrophic climate change, and so we’re headed towards 2, 3, 4 degrees of warming and destruction of most global ecosystems, on which we depend for our food and for everything else.

  • Crypto is much closer to fiat. It’s about building a world without trust.
  • (LibraCoin) is Facebook’s attempt to take over the world by creating another Silicon Valley monopoly.
