Comments on: Refugees in Antarctica? Olympics in cyberspace? Global environmental challenges Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:14:55 +0000 hourly 1 By: da6d Mon, 13 Oct 2008 15:42:52 +0000 This kind of silliness is fun to read, but hardly a meaningful prediction of things to come. As the market demands better technology for energy and transportation, it will come to be. The seeds of progress are already there, and plenty of smart people are involved in the process. The world may look quite different in 20 years, but it’s terribly cynical to believe the sort of gloomy predicitions put forth by the Forum.

As for the warming of the planet – It may well prove to be a net positive, just a bit bumpy on the way up. Then again, for all we know it could get much colder again… watch those sunspots.
