8 Predictions For The World In 2030

1. You'll own nothing and you'll be happy.  Whatever you want you'll rent and it'll be delivered by drone.

2. The US won't be the world's leading superpower. A handful of countries will dominate.

3. You won't die waiting for an organ donor. We won't transplant organs, We'll print new ones instead.

4. You'll eat much less meat. An occasional treat, not a staple for the good of the environment and our health.

5. A billion people will be displaced by climate change. We'll have to do a better job at welcoming and integrating refugees.

6. Polluters will have to pay to emit carbon dioxide. There will be a global price on carbon which will help make fossil fuels history

7. You could be preparing to go to Mars. Scientists will have worked out hoe to keep you healthy in space.  The start of a journey to find alien life?

8. Western values will have been tested to the breaking point. Checks and balances that underpin our democracies must not be forgotten.
