AI and the Climate Crisis: a Collection of Texts
Gathering My Thoughts From Past Writing on Artificial Intelligence and the Climate Crisis
Since I am setting out on a journey to map out artificial intelligence in relation to the climate crisis I thought it might be good to go through a series of previous pieces that I have already written.
Summed up, in relation to AI and the climate crisis they are about:
- The carbon footprint of data storage.
- Escalation in security poses risks to the climate crisis.
- Mitigation and adoption measures.
- Interdisciplinary collaboration and collective action.
- AI strategies and how they address the climate crisis
- Change our mindset to keep ecology front-of-mind. One is about the carbon footprint of data storage
- Explainable AI (XAI) should prioritise explaining the emissions of applied .
- As well as suggesting further readings.
Both that the industry is responsible and that we could think more about the carbon footprint our digital solutions have in a variety of ways.
The Climate Crisis & Why Data Must Not Become the New Oil
The Footprint of Artificial Intelligence and Data Storage
Our Digital Habitat & Climate Crisis
Considering the Consequences of our Habits and Smart Devices
How an escalation in security poses risks to the climate in terms of energy intensive technologies with a large energy consumption, as well as (in)security.
I wrote about mitigation and adoption measures mainly based on the paper Tackling climate change with machine learning.
Mitigation of Climate Change with Machine Learning
Business Opportunities in Energy, Transportation and Construction
Adaption to Climate Change with Machine Learning
Climate Prediction, Societal Impacts and Solar Geoengineering
The importance of interdisciplinary collaboration to achieve the goals, as well as collective action:
Artificial Intelligence, Crisis and the Importance of Bridge Building
Moving Between Disciplines and Faculties to Facilitate Understanding and Different Perspectives on Difficult Topics
AI and collective action
The authors are arguing against using adversarial rhetoric in the AI development. Another possibility is join research…

What kind of research initiatives that exists for AI and the climate crisis:
This is #500daysofAI and you are reading article 276. I am writing one new article about or related to artificial intelligence every day for 500 days. My current focus for 100 days 200–300 is national and international strategies for artificial intelligence. I have decided to spend the last 25 days of my AI strategy writing to focus on the climate crisis.
