Summary

The Silver Gun Hypothesis is an untested theory that multi­cellular organisms, human beings, and economies have characteristic energy performances and probabilistic effects on carbon in the environment. These performances and probabilistic effects are termed ‘thermodynamic skills’. According to the hypothesis, these skills are inherent to natural multi-agent systems and certain of these skills have ‘agency’ to influence the Earth’s carbon balance. The hypothesis presents a matrix of all plausible ‘thermodynamic skills’ that can emerge from multi-agent systems, and it proposes that the existing economy does not have the agency that is needed to achieve global carbon neutrality for a safe climate. The matrix of thermodynamic skills indicates that the agency that is actually required for global carbon neutrality can be developed through a parallel economy for abating and sequestering carbon and coordinating markets. The hypothesis concludes that humanity has a cognitive ‘blind spot’ with regards to identifying and understanding the various kinds of thermodynamic agency that can exist to influence the Earth’s carbon balance.
