People are brilliant. Innovation is very much alive and continues to astonish us on a daily basis. When we think we have seen it all... E! News is still popular (unbelievable). Kidding, but the saying, "What will they think of next?" is more relevant today than ever. With growing nano and biotechnologies... what will it look like in thirty years? Will we be prepared? Humans are adaptable creatures, and so far... all is well. However, not everything is all water parks on Mars and Back to the Future hover boards- we still live in a chaotic and unpredictable world... this is an undeniable fact.. Yes, we face insurmountable problems (over-population, educational conundrums, and the gum-smacking, pen-clicking, close talking co-worker, who breathes satan breath so potent... it melts your skin).
Despite our differences, we are all in agreement over certain universal needs: clean air, clean water, and an abundance of food (along with many others- but this list will suffice for now). Regarding the aforementioned thirty years scenario- it won't be pretty unless we protect what we, as a human species, are completely dependent upon... nature. Yeah, we know, we have been hearing this for years... what is your point? Point is, there are people who do more than worry and fret over the issues... they act.. Ecosia has acted.
