Upon a discussion with Anna 1 month ago, the question arised whether life extension might be interpreted as a green idea. She offered, that if people have the opportunity to extend their life significantly, paralell with this situation they find themselves in a more or less environmentalist position. Now back 2 steps: the question of environmentalism concerning life extension emerges 3fold:
1. the very technology of life extension is green enough,
2. the consequences of grand scale life extension are pro or antigreen (the overemphasized overpopulation topic), and
3. attitudes, mentality, psyhce of would be life extended people
I guess Anna thought of the latter, mentality tpye environmentalism: if we are extended, we take care of our environment more since its value will multiply with the bigger scale.
What do you think?
