Abstract:

The genius of science and design in the 21st Century is the discovery of “smart, clean, and green” ways to capture the value of resources. “Smart” because they unlock the complex designs of nature and use information and signaling to achieve efficiencies. “Clean” because they capture and use resources and methods that don't involve significant externalities in extraction or disposal. And, “green” because they rely to a much higher degree on vegetation, and in the process begin to restore the natural ecosystem and its wide and deep benefits.
