2062, Requiem for a dying planet

Posted by
Bertrand Duhamel (Roxton Pond, Quebec, Canada) on 2 February 2012 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

Global warming, pollution, overpopulation...
What will our world look like 50 years from now ???

Sorry if i might look too pessimistic but i think that every human being should be concerned right now and it's not the case...

Just hope it will not be too late...

'Overpopulation' ! Strangely, there are never enough volunteers to do much about that. And I wish that sounded as serious as it really is.

I agree with Ronnie. And it's true that it really sounds as a taboo to mention the fact that we are too many. As inertia seems to be appropriate (how convenient not to move, say or act), I guess you're right to be pessimistic Bertrand. Et comme je viens de me rendre compte que j'écris en anglais, je switch sur le français pour conclure. Je crois que personne ne peut dire vraiment à quoi ressemblera notre planète dans 20, 30 ou 50 ans. Ce qu'il y a de sûr, et au vu du nombre croissant de la population mondiale qui n'est pas prêt de s'arrêter, je pense qu'on est assez mal parti !

Amen. I believe we won't change significantly until it is too late.. Great dramatic processing.
