Brace for Extreme Weather

The greatest challenge for humanity is our inability to grasp the exponential function. Extreme weather events are getting exponentially frequent and severe. For five years in a row the Global Risk Report has listed extreme weather, such as droughts, floods, wildfires and storms, as the top threat to humanity

A dangerous gap in our thinking

Climate interventions seek to cool the planet, while carbon capture aims to reduce atmospheric CO2. However both leave runaway, catastrophic weather unaddressed -and its intolerable human and economic toll.

Viento is a ‘moonshot’ nonprofit pioneering targeted weather security.

too much sanity can be madness
and the maddest of all:
to see the world as it is,
and not as it should be
