Interesting reading at The Futurist blog. It appears there is a direct impact of our rapid technological development on futurists’ ability to predict events to come: we can’t see as far ahead or see what will happen as clearly. Unfortunately this is occurring just when we need to be planning to mitigate or prevent problems that almost certainly will arise in the next century due to the population explosion and it’s inevitable effects: exhaustion of energy resources and an ever-more-precarious agricultural infrastructure.
The futurist blog writer includes links to other futurists’ blogs as well – interesting reading.
