Imagine standing on a stage with 200 eyeballs staring back, mouths open, eyebrows raised...and I'm wondering "Are these people understanding what I'm saying?"
There's $10 billion of capital sitting in the room, and I'm following the smart executive director of Drawdown, and clarity of Noah Deich from Carbon 180. At one point I see Chris Sacca staring back at me, what!
On Thursday night at Carbon Impact.tech, I had the honor to present 3 carbon moonshot technologies to remove 10+ GT of carbon: underground carbon vaults, ocean carbon to fuels, and cell free synthetic biology.
After the talk, so many people came up with questions, ideas, and sharing the radical stuff they're working on.
When successful, a moonshot changes the course of civilization. If it explodes on the launch pad instead, it inspires us to dream. Whether we aim for 1 gigaton of carbon or a single gram removed, moonshots matter.
How do you deal with presenting a crazy idea to your colleagues?
