Short: Merouane Debbah on AI Sustainability
In this Planet Beyond Shortcast, host Jon Baston-Pitt delves into the environmental costs that come along with the transformative potential of AI. Training and serving AI models requires vast amounts of energy, and water used in cooling server farms. Jon is joined by Merouane Debbah, AI researcher, professor at Khalifa University and senior advisor at the Technology Innovation Institute. Debbah explains the revolutionary potential AI has in areas such as space exploration, potentially paving the way for human colonies on Mars.  However, AI comes with major environmental costs, with estimates suggesting AI energy consumption could reach 1,000 TWh by 2026, equal to the annual electricity consumption of Japan. While AI companies face economic constraints through the cost of powering and cooling AI systems. Debbah stresses the importance of a more holistic approach to AI development, considering the entire lifecycle of AI systems and their energy sources. Debbah also highlights the need for innovative and sustainable energy solutions that can be built alongside AI projects.  Host Jon Baston-Pitt, Fugro Guest Merouane Debbah, Professor Director of 6G Research Center, Khalifa University [https://www.ku.ac.ae/] of Science and Technology Photo credit: flickr | Hansecom

episode Episode 36: Landslide and Slope Stability artwork
Episode 36: Landslide and Slope Stability
At night on May 24, 2024, a devastating landslide hit the village of Yambali, in Papua New Guinea. It took a week for rescuers to just reach the site, with heavy rain, poor roads, and ongoing conflict hindering access. The same factors have made the scale of the devastation hard to assess, but reports suggest that hundreds, if not thousands, of people have lost their lives. In this episode, we talk to two experts from Hong Kong on the risks landslides pose, and how they can be avoided. Jonathan Hart, of consultants GeoRisks Solutions, has been based in the territory since the late 1990s, and has worked on assessing slope stability around the world. He has worked in Papua New Guinea, and shares his experience of the vulnerable conditions that many in the country face.  But Papuans are not alone in facing these risks. Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated places in the world. For much of the 20th century, it grew within tight constraints. With almost every inch of flat ground used, apartments and homes were built on steep slopes. And a series of terrible landslides have taken many hundreds of lives here too. Jonathan is joined by Jesse Tam, associate director for Fugro in the territory, to discuss how, over decades, local regulators and industry experts have devised methods to assess the stability of slopes during project planning, and to mitigate the risks of landslides on older buildings. Landslides do not care for wealth or social class, and the lessons learned in Hong Kong are as important to anyone building an opulent hillside mansion, as they are to those struggling for a safe home in informal settlements.

IPF 2024: Women in Wind
The Planet Beyond team has been recording live from the International Partnering Forum (IPF) 2024 in New Orleans. In this episode, host Jon Baston-Pitt is joined by three prominent women leaders in the offshore wind industry in the Americas: Liz Burdock from Oceantic Network, Jennifer Cullen from Vineyard Wind, and Celine Gerson from Fugro. The guests highlight the significant contributions of women leaders in shaping the industry as we see it today, and how there is a long road ahead to increase on the 21% of women who currently work in the industry. They share the benefits achieved by fostering a diverse workforce, and discuss the industry’s evolving landscape.  We learn how the insights and experiences of that diverse workforce are driving innovation and community engagement, and why they advocate for a collective approach between government, academia and commercial organisations in offering career development programmes to build a strong pipeline of talent if the industry is to achieve the goal of 30 gigawatts of offshore energy by 2030.  Join us to hear how these women are inspiring the next generation and shaping the future of offshore wind.

episode Short: Plastic Punch and Citizen Science artwork
Short: Plastic Punch and Citizen Science
In this episode of Planet Beyond, host Jon Baston-Pitt speaks with Richmond Quarcoo, founder and director of Plastic Punch. Richmond shares the origins of Plastic Punch, which began after discovering sea turtles tangled in plastic waste along the beaches in Ghana. The organisation uses citizen science to address marine litter and inspire behavioural change. One key initiative is beach cleanups, which not only help protect turtle nesting sites but also collect data on the sources of pollution. This data is used to identify and hold accountable the companies responsible for producing the plastic waste. Richmond discusses the limitations of recycling, arguing it has not proven to be an effective solution to plastic pollution. Instead, Plastic Punch emphasises reduction and reuse, encouraging community members to adopt sustainable practices like using reusable bottles and bags. The organisation is also developing innovative packaging solutions from vegetable fibres and promoting water dispensing machines to reduce plastic bottle usage. Richmond highlights the importance of redesigning products and collective action to combat transboundary pollution and protect the ocean. Tune in to hear more about Plastic Punch’s inspiring work and their approach to tackling the plastic pollution crisis through community engagement, data-driven advocacy, and innovative solutions. Richmond’s insights underscore the need for systemic change and collective responsibility in preserving our oceans.
