(2011-02-09) Gupta Technologies Stopping Poverty
Vinay Gupta notes some technologies that can fight Poverty (and Collapse?) (Un Civilization Technology): the Rocket Stove, the Biosand Water Filter, the Composting Toilet. Add some farming education and the absolute horror of poverty can be mostly halted for not a lot of money. I have no idea why the big Millennium Development Goals don’t focus on the global roll-out of these very simple, very, very effective technologies but perhaps it’s the blindness which goes with ignoring the critical role of technology in forming society.
