The Future Of The United States, Europe, And The Rest of The World.
I have a vision of the future of the human race. This vision isn’t what I want the human race to be, instead it is what I think it will be. Now I am far from being Nostradamus, but I am going to base these predictions on current trends that have existed for a while now and give you a scary glimpse into what we have in store for ourselves. I do believe that barring a major change in the thinking of man, many of these predictions are far from a stretch.
- Based on current trends, the human population on this planet will reach a number in excess of 9 billion people by the year 2050. Considering that we have the hunger and water shortage problems we do currently with a world population just a little bit over 7 billion now in 2012, it can only be assumed that without major advances in related technology or a major change in human behavior, that the issues we have now will be significantly worse. It is reasonable to think that this will lead to far more people starving, far more military conflicts over rapidly disappearing resources, and far more pollution than we currently have. On top of that, it is likely that disease will have a far easier time spreading due to the massive overpopulation and likelihood that along with the increase in population will come a large increase in the number of people living in poverty worldwide. This greatly increases the odds of a worldwide pandemic that could rival the black plague in the number of deaths caused by it. Yes, more stable countries will have an easier time stopping the spread of whatever disease crops up, but the much larger number of people living in poverty will be a breeding ground for dangerous plagues.
- The following animals are considered endangered and if there is no more value attached to the continuation of these species existence, it is quite possible that human beings may erase the following creatures from existence for the rest of time. Unbelievably sad to consider, people just don’t realize that once extinct we won’t be able to get them back, check out this list and remember that these animals extinction is pretty much completely caused by human existence. The African Elephant, The Asian Elephant,The Right Whale, the Blue Whale, The Fin Whale, the Golden Lion Tamarin, the Hybrid Spider Monkey, the Aye-Aye(a type of primate), the Gorilla, the Red Wolf, the Amur Leopard, the Anatolian Leopard, the Asiatic Cheetah, the Florida Cougar, the Iberian Lynx, the Snow Leopard, the Texas Ocelot, the Tiger, the Marine Otter, the Giant Panda, the Lesser Panda, the Cuvier’s Gazelle, the Western Giant Eland, the Wild Bactrian Camel, the Manipur Brow-Antlered Deer, the Black Rhinoceros, the Broom Pygmy-Possum, the Northern Hairy-Nosed Wombat, the Short-tailed Chinchilla, the Giant Armadillo, the Crested Shelduck, the White Winged Duck, the Marquesan Kingfisher, the Rufous-lored Kingfisher, the California Condor, the Mauritius Kestrel, the Hawaiian Crow, the Cochabamba Mountain-Finch, the Gouldian Finch, Blue-bellied Parrot, the Whooping Crane, the Siberian Sturgeon, the Alabama Sturgeon, the Chinese Paddlefish, the Alabama Shad, the Great White Shark, the Silver Shark, the Clanwilliam Redfin, and the Wild Common Carp. Many of these animals total population is less than 3,000 worldwide and some have fewer than 500 left. Fucking sickening.
- It is likely that, with the increasing population in many countries that this will lead to more military conflicts. 40 years from now, when China has a few more hundred million people, do you think it is more likely that they will allow their people to starve or that they will militarily want to expand their borders in order to have access to more resources? On top of that, countries that have a more militant style of governing their people, such a North Korea, will be even more likely to find themselves in military conflict as their increasing populations and the poverty that goes along with it make it more difficult to control the populous. When these types of countries see this start to happen, their power-hungry leaders will do almost anything to maintain their control and in many cases, that will involve military action that will result in them being in control of more resources to appease their poor populations.
- In the year 2050, it is highly likely that our constant toxification of the environment will lead to more and more diseases becoming active and prevalent in the world. Most countries water supplies are constantly recycled again and again and again and as they are, they pick up more and more of the chemicals we involve in our lives everyday. Even in today’s world, our water supply contains a literal laundry list of chemicals, both industrial and pharmaceutical, and the more times we recycle this very water through our bodies and our water system, the more likelihood that remnants of these chemicals will remain. As time passes and different combinations of these chemicals wind up combining over and over again in millions of different combinations in millions of people’s bodies over and over and over again, the more likely that we will see both new and mutated versions of the bacteria and virus population of the planet that affect us negatively.
- Weird science. As time goes by, it seems our scientific goals become more and more bizarre. From cloning, to invisibility, to mind control, the science being done behind the scenes by our governments is becoming bizarre and in many cases dangerous. Much like the nuclear bomb, which releases a massive amount of energy from relatively small amounts of physical matter, as we continue to experiment with things we do not fully understand the likelihood that we will one day see a result we do not want or that is very dangerous becomes more likely. Factor in the additional population of the future with the possibility of widespread plague or destruction caused by science gone awry and you have a recipe for disaster.
