World Population 1950 to 2050 Prediction – 27.09.21

  • The UN Department of Economics and Social Affairs projects between 9–10 billion people by 2050, and gives an 80% confidence interval of 10–12 billion by the end of the 21st century. Other demographers predict that world population will begin to decline in the second half of the 21st century. A popular estimate for the sustainable population of earth is 8 billion people as of 2012. With the world population at 7.8 billion people as of March 2020 and typical projections of population growth, Earth will be in a state of human overpopulation by 2050 or sooner.

The Ministry for the Future: Climate Change and Speculative Fiction with Kim Stanley Robinson – 04.21

  • Meaningful global action on climate change looks like it may finally be in reach in 2021 – the United States has rejoined the Paris Agreement and the Biden administration has signaled that climate change is a top priority. But what if we fail? In his new novel, ‘The Ministry for the Future’, legendary science-fiction author Kim Stanley Robinson imagines that very scenario, telling the story of a chaotic, not-so-distant future with runaway climate change, eco-terrorists, petro-billionaires, and a shadowy international organization known as the “Ministry for the Future.”
  • How can speculative fiction like this new novel help inform smart global policy? Are there real-life equivalents of The Ministry for the Future? And is there hope that the world can avoid the worst-case scenario of climate change?

Mauro Guillén : 2030: Cum vor afecta si vor remodela viitorul actualele tendinte majore – Litera, 2021 (2020)
Potrivit lui Mauro F. Guillén, singura posibilitate reală de a înțelege transformările – și impactul lor – este să gândim lateral, să abordăm problemele creativ și din perspective noi. În loc să ne concentrăm pe o singură tendință – de pildă, schimbările climatice sau ascensiunea regimurilor nonliberale –, autorul ne încurajează să ne gândim la interacțiunea dinamică dintre aceste forțe care converg într-un punct critic unic – 2030 –, punctul din care nu ne mai putem întoarce.

This is what 2030 could look like if we win the war on climate change – WEF, 10.19
By 2030, your CO2 emissions will be greatly reduced. Meat on your dinner table will be a rare sight. Water and the air you breathe will be cleaner and nature will be in recovery. The money in your wallet will be spent on being with family and friends, not on buying goods. Saving the climate involves huge change, but it could make us much happier at the same time. Right now, we are losing the fight against climate change – but what would winning look like? What is life like in a green world?

The Chinese Economy in the Next 30 Years: Political Reform vs. Status Quo? – Milken Institute, 07.19

  • What’s in the future for China? China has transformed from a closed-door society to a prosperous and progressive one in the past 40 years. Pragmatism and pro-growth policies in the reform era centered mostly on people’s lives and building a nation with a modern economic system. With China at the threshold of entering the middle-income stage, how will the nation advance further in the coming decades? In light of sharply rising geopolitical challenges on the global stage and the declining prospect of consistent moderate expansion on the domestic front, how the new generation of Chinese leadership tackles these challenges—if they choose to do so—via social transformation and political reform will be critical.

Welcome to 2030. I own nothing, have no privacy, and life has never been better – WEF, 11.16

  • Welcome to the year 2030. Welcome to my city – or should I say, “our city”. I don’t own anything. I don’t own a car. I don’t own a house. I don’t own any appliances or any clothes.
  • It might seem odd to you, but it makes perfect sense for us in this city. Everything you considered a product, has now become a service. We have access to transportation, accommodation, food and all the things we need in our daily lives. One by one all these things became free, so it ended up not making sense for us to own much.
