What Does The Future Hold For Humanity?

There is a hotly contested debate that rages in the halls of science and education concerning the future of humanity.

On one side we have self-proclaimed realists who paint a dismal picture of overpopulation, poverty, and death.  They quote Thomas Malthus and describe how the humanity is decimating the planet.  They display charts and graphs showing the inevitable self-destruction of the species, and proclaim that the world is doomed unless growth is reversed.

But then, from the other side of the aisle we have the starry-eyed optimists, who look upon the world through rose-colored glasses and see boundless opportunity and a future bright with promise.  They expound upon the achievements of technology and its marvelous potential to better our existence.  They too show charts and graphs–showing the expansion of production and the vastness of earth’s resources.  They go on to describe a future where humanity overcomes the challenges of scarcity, breaks the limits of its earthly cradle and extends its reach to the stars.

Who is right?  Will humanity flounder in misery and darkness, or will it flourish and rise to unending heights of achievement?  Will we run out of resources and starve, or will technology pave the way to infinite abundance?  Here we will explore these questions and many more as we examine the facts and watch world events unfold before our eyes.

  1. beautiful site and thank you for your comment about SolaRoof – we might be “deceptively disruptive” – that’s the best kind – more uplifting to human spirit and our possibilities – not as dangerous but enabling deep change. I like this quote by Bucky Fuller: “If you want to teach people a new way of thinking, don’t bother trying to teach them. Instead, give them a tool, the use of which will lead to new ways of thinking.” – would you like to interview me for an article on your blog? perhaps follow me @solaroof – solaroof@gmail.com
