Our World in 50 Years

Our world in 50 years

 

Many are excited about the future and they have the right to be. There is a new wave of robotic technology and Elon Musk plans to go to Mars, an achievement no one has ever done. The rate of technological advancement skyrockets, with new flying cars being tested. Yet people do not realize that the problems outweigh the fun new things coming into our world.

Our sea is currently filled with over 17.6 billion or for comparison 57,000 blue whales. Also, there are 15 billion trees that are cut down a year. Trees are the main source of oxygen. There are a lot of fundraisers that will help these problems, like team seas and team trees yet there is nothing they can do to stop the problem. I understand that they are doing the right thing yet they just help it for a small amount of time.

When these fundraisers are created, yes they solve issues for a short amount of time, where the problem cannot be solved in a limited amount of time. These problems are going to stay with earth forever. At this rate, there will be no way to stop it. In 50 years, there will be 880 billion pounds of trash.

So if people keep doing this our world will die. The loss of ecosystems is caused mainly by changes in land and sea use, climate change, pollution, and species. Some things have a direct impact on nature, like the dumping of waste into the ocean. We have to step up and realize this matter. We need to stop worrying about adding unnecessary things, and we need to pay attention to the problems that are for sure to happen. The future is advanced, in all the bad ways.

 

Even though the future will be so cool and how it will be more enjoyable. You have to understand that every action, everything we do has an effect, positively and/ or negatively. What we are doing is doing exactly that. Even though in 2050, there will be so many cool robots, flying cars, and who knows we will probably be on a new planet. Yet we are preparing for things that people would buy. They are not preparing for all the bad effects each “advancement” has. We are slowly killing ourselves, for what money? Our world is so selfish, that they don’t care how hard it will be to breathe, to eat, to even look outside. Our ozone layer is slowly breaking apart, and the future will even be worse with all the smoke from robots and factories. Our glaciers are melting, and our sea levels will rise, slowly drowning ourselves. We will probably be nocturnal since the day would be too hot for us. We need to stop worrying about adding unnecessary things, and we need to pay attention to the problems that are for sure to happen.
