Will technology save biodiversity, or will technology distract us from the regeneration nature needs?
Our planet’s biodiversity loss is so dramatic that it may be unrealistic to address the crisis through “natural” methods alone. We need to accelerate technological solutions like AI to map biological processes, refine carbon removal, and invest in geo-engineering to regulate our environment. On the other hand, a crisis in nature should call for natural solutions: a return to sustainable practices that could catalyse other contemporary regenerative business practices.
So can technology save biodiversity, or will technology distract us from the regeneration nature needs?
