Re: Envisioning the world of 2100

The oil economy and globalization may implode. Oil isn't magic: given the surge in demand from China and India for not only gasoline, but plastic crap, it's going to peak and there will be hell to pay. If we're bright enough to anticipate this and move away from oil, technologically sophisticated society will survive. If we stay the course...global dark age.
