Pretty awesome stuff..it's incredible, almost scary, to see how fast that science and technology is advancing..even on a year to year basis


The things i'm gonna see in my lifetime are gonna be crazy..i figure i might die in my 90's, which is only 7-10 years older than my grandparents ages when they died..that'd be in the 2080's. By then, i may have the option to keep living

These type of predictions usually don't, at least not in the expected timeframe.

I don't think it's going to be out of the realm of possibilities to live until you're in the 120's.


screw that. You know how much money this would cost? This would be mean working until nearly 100.

It will balance out. People will go to school for 12-15 years after HS in stead of 0-5, people will live at home longer, etc..

And you can stay on your parent's insurance until you're 40.

None of that is a big deal if they work till they're 100 and live till they're 120.

By 2030, food demand will increase more than two-thirds, global water requirements will hit 6,900 billion cubic meters and tremendous failures in electrical grids and computer networks will take place.


Old news, but I am in that camp.

quote:

The one chart about oil's future everyone should see by Kurt Cobb When people read about a long-term forecast of world oil supply--say, out to 2030--they often believe that the forecasters are merely incorporating our knowledge of existing fields and figuring out how much oil can be extracted from them over the forecast period. Nothing could be further from the truth. Much of the forecast supply has not yet been discovered or has no demonstrated technology which can extract or produce it economically. In other words, such forecasts are merely guesses based on the slimmest of evidence.

Perhaps the best ever illustration of this comes from a 2009 presentation made by Glen Sweetnam, a U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) official. The EIA is the statistical arm of the U.S. Department of Energy. The following chart from that presentation will upend any notion that we know exactly where all the oil we need to meet expected demand will come from.

...
What Sweetnam's chart tells us is that we must find and bring into production the equivalent of five new Saudi Arabias between now and 2030 in order to meet expected demand even if the volume of tight oil reaches its maximum projected output. (The Saudis currently produce about 11.7 mbpd of oil and other liquids.)

Or we could try to get off this shite. Oil is heroine to the world.
