Thank you all for joining and for the good discussions! After a lot of theoretical topics, the next food for thought will be about a very practical thing: "How to give effectively" hope to see you there. The event is here, we'll add more details soon: https://forum.effectivealtruism.org/events/ZyzhF9HdDq3iGCtQT/food-for-thought-11-how-to-give-effectively

Thank you for this great series of posts, I learned a lot reading them and will dig deeper into some of the references provided! Now, I agree with you that this is probably a very important and neglected topic.

While reading this I had a thought on maximizing utility in this situation. Wouldn't it make sense to prioritize low energy societies now when it comes to building new renewable energy sources? I guess in those societies we still have a chance to substitute all energy that is currently consumed with renewable sources. This would mean those societies wouldn't get into much (further) trouble and could have a rather smooth transition into the post fossil fuel area. Whereas spending most of the resources available for this topic in countries with a high energy consumption seems like an odd choice because here only a small fraction of the necessary energy can be substituted and this probably won't help for a smooth transition.

The next food for thought will happen on the 7th December. This time we will discuss how a EA utopia would look like. More information and RSVP here: https://forum.effectivealtruism.org/events/XQLsqnz234GAaNZHP/food-for-thought-8-utopia

The next Food for Thought will be at the 2nd November and we will talk about Clulessness. Would be great to see you again! https://forum.effectivealtruism.org/events/iXumEP6nbWthEsQWD/food-for-thought-do-we-have-a-clue
