We live in a world of relentless change, huge migrations of people to new mega-cities filling soaring skyscrapers and vast slums, ravenous appetites for fuel and food, unpredictable climate change and all this in a world where the population is still growing. Should we be worried? Should we be scared? How to make sense of it all?

    This is actually quite interesting & entertainingly presented. I would say to anyone indecisive about whether they should take the time to watch this film: Certainly. It is worth your time unless of course your time is worth more than learning something new & interesting. Enjoy.

      Sorry, my previous comment just appeared. It wasn’t showing when i revisited to finish viewing the end of this doc.

  • Extremely interesting and educational. It gives an optimistic image of the future on condition that the human race keeps an altruistic nature. Let’s all hope for it!

    I was feeling very optimistic up until the end when he said that the richest billion will have to give up and share “their resources and energy”. What kind of resources does he mean – he didn’t say? I hope he’s not meaning money. I’d hope by the end of the century that we’ve managed to freely produce money with out there being inflation so that everybody can be financially rich. I’d also hope by the end of the century we’d have been able to adopt some of the very useful techniques like renewable energy; so that the current 80% fossil fuel consumption be swapped to renewables so that everyone can enjoy using a washing machine and flying. I agree that it can be a very positive world despite the population growth but western living should not decline as a result, nor should that dream be outdated for those aspiring to become more prosperous.
