One example of the Optimist's Edge

💡 Optimist’s Edge: Should we fix Earth before going to space?

61 percent believe we should 'fix Earth' before we go to space.
That is wrong.

Optimist's Edge:
We need space to fix Earth.

Without satellites it will be much harder and more expansive to fight climate change, save coral reefs and help people during natural disasters.

But our facts show that satellites can help us understand Earth better by providing vital information in many different areas, giving a global perspective with many details on problems that before only could be studied in pieces at a time.

Satellites can, for instance, photograph and monitor Earth’s surface, help with predictions by observing weather and climate, and monitor ecosystems that are otherwise hidden.

Mathias Sundin —
The Angry Optimist

Co-founder & CEO of Warp News
Co-founder & Executive Chairman of the
Warp Institute Foundation

Mathias used to be a Member of Parliament, but choose not to run for reelection in 2018, because he had seen a big opportunity to have a more positive impact on the future.

Over the years he had become angry over how pessimists were seen as rational. Frustrated when optimists were mocked. Annoyed with the news media for their focus on negative news.

At the same time, he got more and more optimistic about the future of humanity. Life on Earth improved at a rate never seen before.

But progress was slowed down by all the pessimism. To solve enormous challenges like climate change we need to move faster.

Mathias started dreaming of a world where optimists are seen as rational. With news media showing a fact-based view of the world. And naive pessimists don't stand in the way of progress.

Therefore he founded the non-profit Warp Institute Foundation with the mission to make the future come sooner.

Warp Institute started gathering fact-based optimists from all over the world in a community.

In the community ideas are born that move humanity forward.

One future that we must make come sooner is the green future. Slowing down and stopping climate change requires faster action, more ideas and new technology.

That is why we cover the impact startups doing that.
