Where the World is Heading ? Rather, Where are we taking it ?

Today being the Earth Day, here are some of the events that we might see or experience before we reach our final destinations in this lifetime.
These are not natural occurences, these will be the result of our desires, Neglegence & for just being Humans without commitment to protect this world.

In Brief

  1. The world will have a billion millionaires by 2025.
  2. Fashion will go wired as technologies and tastes converge to revolutionize the textile industry.
  3. The threat of another cold war with China, Russia, or both could replace terrorism as the chief foreign-policy concern of the United States.
  4. Counterfeiting of currency will proliferate, driving the move toward a cashless society.
  5. The earth is on the verge of a significant extinction event.
  6. Water will be in the twenty-first century what oil was in the twentieth century.
  7. World population by 2050 may grow larger than previously expected, due in part to healthier, longer-living people
  8. The number of Africans imperiled by floods will grow 70-fold by 2080.
  9. Rising prices for natural resources could lead to a full-scale rush to develop the Arctic.
  10. More decisions will be made by nonhuman entities.
