How a 'shared vision' can impact our future in Western Australia

If you've ever considered how a positive or negative outlook impacts your reality, consider how a shared group outlook on the future can impact the reality of a state or nation.

Howard Bloom, author of Global Brain, has just released a new book, entitled Genius of the Beast where he explores 'group think' in relation to potential futures for the United States. The book draws on serious scientific research. Giving America a Vision Implant—Crayfish, Neurochemicals and the Future of Your Civilization

What is the 'shared vision' that we have in Western Australia?

Robotic co-drivers on the way

MIT & Audi are collaborating in order to develop robotic co-drivers for cars of the future. A host of new technologies that rely on GPS, cameras and other sensors will be deployed to control every facet of your car, making you redundant as a driver.

In Western Australia, expect this technology to show up first in mining & farming transport vehicles that are active off the main road system, then possibly the controls will be implemented in vehicles for people with disabilities or who have lost their licences.

Kimberley tides + HVDC - key to a new energy future

Tides in the Kimberley (Far north of Western Australia) are some of the most powerful in the world but the area is extremely remote and over 2000km's from Perth. New HVDC (High Voltage Direct Current ) power lines are the answer to transporting power from this remote region back to Perth or the Pilbara where much of the Western Australian mining industry conducts its' activity.

Under federal law, Western Australia must generate 20% of its' energy from renewable sources by 2020. Murdoch University enegy professor, Adam McHugh is convinced that tidal power generated by turbines that spin as the tide surges in & out could be the 'magic bullet' for WA's energy needs.

Future demand for enegy is expected to top 7000MW compared to current demand that sits at about 5000MW per annum.

As HVDC transmission is now competitive with traditional AC powerlines but with the potential to reduce power loss over long distances from 50% to less than 10%, Western Australia has a very bright future.

C2030 Perth - The future of Perth city

Professor Richard Weller presented a fascinating topic on what the future holds for Perth at the C2030 Perth summit. Some of the major topic points included –

  • Perth is currently network centric
  • By 2050 Perth will have doubled in size, the magnetism if the CBD will have given way to multiple nodes and the city will be polycentric
  • The city will be far from self sufficient
  • The population will have expanded from 1.6 million to between 3 and 4.2 million
  • 1.1   million new homes or 1.4 million new apartments will have been built
  • 85% of all new development will be urban sprawl
  • Suburbs are not necessarily a negative and will still be good places to live in though expect the size of the backyard to keep decreasing as it is used less & less
  • Massive amounts of land are still available, at least 118,000 hectares inland
  • Already, Perth is the biggest sprawled city on the planet
  • Spread out cities are not the optimal configuration. Density & size brings the benefit of inverse power requirement ratios
  • If everyone on the planet were to live like we do in Perth, we’d need 5 planets the size of Earth
