Ex-Google CEO Eric Schmidt on the world’s biggest problem: ‘If we don’t address climate change, we really will be toast’

Eric Schmidt knows a thing or two about doing big thiings. What are his thoughts on doing something about the biggest threat the world is currently facing?

  • “If we don’t address climate change, we really will be toast. If you look at the rate of melting in the Antarctic ice sheet as well as in Greenland, it’s quite concerning.” - Eric Schmidt, Google’s former CEO

  • Schmidt left Google’s executive chairman post and launched a philanthropic initiative, Schmidt Futures, to support big-idea research in fields like artificial intelligence, biology and energy.

  • The world is now losing 1.2 trillion tons of ice each year — a 60% increase from the 1990s — and it’s projected to only get worse.

  • Schmidt Futures is already using AI to improve climate modeling research through a program called Virtual Earth System Research Institute (VESRI) as artificial intelligence can play a vital role in combating climate change going forward.

  • Imagine the perfect AI system that helps you, knows you,travels with you.The goal is   that AI system to help you come up with ideas and create suggestions to make people’s lives better. That’s the future - Eric Schmidt
