What if you found an almanac from 50 years in the future? What do you think it would say? The October issue of Discover magazine included one in the the center of their magazine. I agree with most of what they predicted but not all. Yes, I agree that the temperatures will probably be warmer and that polar ice cap will probably melt leaving the Arctic Sea open for new shipping lanes and oil and gas productions along and off the shores. Of course if the polar caps melt the sea levels will rise and shrink the land mass and flood what we now consider ocean front property. The world population will continue to grow but will be slowing down. A lot more countries will become industrialized nations and because of more mechanized farming most of this population will be in super cities. Hey, let the population move to cities, that will give me more room to live and roam in the country.
I have no idea what the future of the population of our planet will be. I am sure that there will be a lot good things happen along with a lot of bad things. Over population could become a problem but Mother Nature usually takes care of that problem with fertility problems or epidemic. This universe is a violent place and you can let your imagination run wild with cataclysmic quick endings to life on Earth. I will not be around to see these big changes (hopefully not cataclysmic ending) and maybe I am glad. So far in my life I have seen way too many changes that I don't care for. Let us all take full advantage of "today" and not dwell on what could possibly happen "tomorrow". Now, you all take advantage of today and have a great one, you hear?
