When I was a kid they told us all kinds of nonsense about how technology will improve our lives and eliminate humanity’s problems. Sure, there were a minority of technological achievements that were good for all mankind - so I’m not saying technology is bad - just that 80% or more of humanity’s problems can never be solved with technology or Capitalism. Climate can be partially reduced through technological innovation - but it’s really too little if you really look at what is wrong with the modern world and how that drives climate change.
Your post is mostly the same pie in the sky daydreaming and believing that all we need is better technology.
What they could never conceive back then was the idea of planned and engineered obsolescence - that megacorporations will not focus on what’s best for society, but what is best for future sales. For Auto manufacturers, they will engineer vehicles that need to be replaced periodically even though it is possible to engineer vehicles to last 10 times as long - because making good quality products is less profitable.
If you want to live with your head in the sand, that’s your choice.
I don’t even see how driverless cars are even relevant to the discussion of reversing climate change.
Uber, etc is basically cheap taxi service and is also mostly irrelevant in regards to reducing greenhouse emissions.
Your focus on unnecessary consumption as the thing you “always wanted” - like a mancave with a pool table and Keggerator is further telling. If you had said instead something about a place for you to spend time with your family or community or at least a room for spiritual pursuits, there might be hope. But instead your dream is a room to get drunk in and to fill it with an expensive game that’s nice to have as a status symbol but you’ll honestly play for a few months then use it as just a table to pile things on. That’s pretty much what I’m saying is why humanity will continue to fail regardless of technological innovation.
Your attempt to blame feminists for the porn problem is pretty sad as well. The reason men are so lacking in self esteem that they use porn is because, quite simply they are looking everywhere except inside themselves for the answers to their problems. Why are they using porn - feminism! If only feminists would view men as the superior gender and stop demanding respect and equal treatment, men wouldn’t have to turn to porn, lol.
However, it would help the planet and give you a more fulfilling life if you did convince your neighborhood to change their ordinances and allow you to dig up your driveway and keep animals. I suspect you live in an area where that is currently illegal.
But I also suspect you were not being genuine, and the idea of keeping animals is a low key joke to you. Ah, yes, haha haha.
