Hot, crowded, and running out of fuel: Earth of 2050 a scary place

Hot, crowded, and running out of fuel: Earth of 2050 a scary place! The OECD paints a grim picture of the world in 2050 based on current global trends. It predicts a world population of 9.2 billion people, generating a global GDP four times the size of today's, requiring 80 percent more energy. And with a worldwide energy mix still 85 percent reliant on fossil fuels by that time, it will be coal, oil, and gas that make up most of the difference! #Earth www.bloomtrigger.com
