What will the world look like in 2050? Well – according to scientists attending a conference yesterday with the American Association for the Advancement of Science – the planet will be “unrecognizable.” With a population over 9 billion by then – we’ll have to produce more food in the next 40 years than has been produced in the last 8,000 years. And as income in the developing world is supposed to increase – more people will be eating more food – thus leading to a far higher rate of resource depletion in the world. We’re in for some dark time ahead – unless we can transform our culture and try to live WITH our world – and not opposed to it.
