There's been a lot of talk recently about how much energy is used by bitcoin, and how much it is contributing to global carbon emissions.  
By and large, the implication of these ideas is that bitcoin provides nothing useful to humanity and is therefore not only an unconscionable waste of scarce resources, but it's also actively making climate change worse.
But what if there are important elements missing from this analysis? What if bitcoin mining not only isn't a gigantic, pointless waste, but it might hold the key to subsidizing renewable forms of energy?
Margot Paez, climate scientist and physicist, is one of a cadre of intellectuals developing this thesis. She joins us in our most recent episode of the Futurati Podcast to talk about how Bitcoin mining might power a revolution in renewable energies, and how this might help us fight climate change.
