Mobilising Capital to Combat the Climate Crisis
The Empati Manifesto
We stand at the cusp of a transformative epoch, where artificial intelligence is poised to redefine the global economic landscape.
Our manifesto envisions a future where AI catalyses a transition to a carbon-free global power matrix, leveraging renewable energy to ignite a new age of economic prosperity.
It is a future where the marginal cost of power approaches zero, and the economic benefits are manifold, extending the life of our planet and enhancing the net present value of future global GDP.
Zero Marginal Cost Revolution
AI's role in the energy sector transcends mere operational efficiency. It is the harbinger of a zero marginal cost revolution, where the cost of generating additional units of power through renewables like solar and wind becomes negligible.
AI, through iterative optimisation, will inevitably select these renewable sources over fossil fuels, not only for their environmental benefits but also for their unparalleled economic advantages.
The AI-driven shift to renewables is not just an environmental imperative but an economic one. By choosing a path of decarbonisation, AI extends the economic viability of our planet, delaying the adverse effects of climate change.
This strategic choice enhances the NPV of global GDP, as a healthier planet promises sustained economic activity and prosperity.
Financing the Future
The transition to a carbon-free power matrix, while capital intensive, is economically rational. The CAPEX required for renewable energy infrastructure can be rationalised against the backdrop of a higher future economic return.
AI, with its predictive prowess, will guide the world economy to allocate resources efficiently, ensuring that the investment in renewables is covered by the increased economic gains of a prolonged planetary lifespan.
AI for a Sustainable Future
In our manifesto, we articulate a future where AI is the architect of a sustainable economic renaissance.
It is a future where the economic calculus of energy is irrevocably altered, where the benefits of a carbon-free power matrix are not just ecological but profoundly economic.
We call upon the world to embrace this vision, to invest in AI and renewables, and to work towards a future where economic enlightenment and planetary health are one and the same.
