ABC News Special: Earth 2100

Post by Zaki90 on Tue Jun 09, 2009 4:04 pm

http://www.hulu.com/search?query=earth+2100

It was a 2 hour global event on ABC on Tuesday about life from 2009-2100.

Do ya'll think it was far-fetched or should be taken serouisly.

I feel it focused too much on the bad on many scenes. Those few occurces that were good just need some bad and the many bad scenes need some good. Far-fetched in my eyes.

Hulu doesnt work for me, but sounds interesting. I'll give it alook on the more shady streaming websites that the UK love so much.

Your missing a moderate choice selection.

Your forgetting things aren't that extreme yet, swine flu isn't the humanity killing epidemic. The conflict in the middle east will resolve itself as long as we just keep our oil stealing noses out. The environment crisis can be solved easily and the only reason we haven't changed drastically yet is because nobody has force us yet.

But on the other hand you can't just ignore all the problems also. we cant keep using fossil fuels. We need to develop other sources of energy.

We need to stop being paranoid that whenever our vision of reality changes because a tree blossomed a day early, yet we also need to address that fact that other countries are making the same mistakes we made a century ago. I mean have you seen India or china lately. it looks like Gilded Age American cities, well excluding the modern technology and the fact that everyone is Asian/Indian.

Everything was fine until the flood in New York. That "chance" that the gate might not shut was very unlikely. Then the disease strikes. BTW, it wasn't swine flu. How do you go in an airplane when the airport is shut down, the subways are shut down and flooded, the electric cars are dead, and the entire city in crumbles.

And I would have built the wall a bit bigger just in case. And if we know that methane will come out of the ground, why not prepare for it?

Considering permafrost is already melting in Alaska we may have even less time.

And its not going to stop, china is a brick wall, and if we go to war that will accelerate things.

actually there is large chance that this interglacial period will end in the next one hundred years.

Regardless the only panacea for the planet is that everyone needs to not have as many babies as they possibly can. Normally there was an extremely positive chance a baby would die in the first few months (as it is with almost every single living organism on the planet), now with all these cure seekers cheating death, they are actually dooming the world to a terrible fate. the Population of India is going to increase and increase, and then what? things will get better? no, people are just going to starve to death more. Medical intervention has created a problem, as it solves temporary ailments, it interferes in the natural flow of things, the evolution of humanity. Diseases are supposed to kill people, but then, they become immune to them, and the problem is solved. I have asthma and I wear glasses, I wonder if all of civilization was to vanish, would I survive? could I shoot a bow and arrow? No, I am the product of this "better world". When did people stop being apes and started being talking, problem solving and tool making beings? Was it when we were living in caves? or when we spent half the day in front of a computer or a wheel?

Some facts.

The amount of people with Asthma has risen dramatically recently. People are now more likely to become sunburnt without sunscreen, since they aren't exposed as much (more time inside, and, when outside, behind a layer of sun tan lotion or such). It will continue to go on and on, but the situation is, so what? What if humans are weak without technology, we are strong with it, so we can survive? Assuming we can get population under control, it won't really do anything, since the medications for the continuely increasing disieses will become more convenient undoubtedly.

Nature balances. I agree medical intervention has hurt. Medical intervention hurts in the long term. But it does not damage the balance permanently.

This better world disrupts the the balance. Never disrupt the balance.

The amount of people altogether has risen dramatically. As population grows, so do mutations.

People are more likely to become sunburnt without sunscreen because of the ozone.

We only have 2 options.

1. Intervene and take complete control.

2. Become more efficient or return to the dark ages.

Nope, it was the fictional Caspian Fever.
