      Hi Evaa, the world is going to be empty, because they’ll have invented time machines and spaceships, and all gone to their favorite part of the universe or history. Um, I don’t think I was supposed to tell you that. Forget I said anything, okay?

      Hi evaa!

      I think the world may look quite different – if the change is as radical from when our grandparents were kids (no colour TV, everyone played on the street, no one had iPods or mobile phones!) to now!!
      But hopefully it will change in a good way – technology will progress for positive impact in society and we will stop cutting down so many rainforests and things. But that will be up to you and your friends – because you are the people growing up and changing things and, if I am still alive in 50years, we can meet up and discuss it then!! 🙂

      hey evva… I’m a bit pesamistic over this… i think we’re going to destroy the world we’re living in as humans are generally too selfish and greedy.. Everthing will probaly be more poluted, more expensive, filled with litter and well horrible.. Sorry not a very happy answer… 🙁

      Hello Evaa!

      Lol. Nice answer Drew! Way to let the cat out of the bag 😉

      I think I am in agreement with Amy on this one. I don’t think people of 100 years ago would have an ability to predict how the Earth would look now. I think nature itself will be much the same (that is if we can preserve what’s left!!!). There certainly will probably be more human cities, and they will be larger. Hopefully the population will stop growing by then (overpopulation is the biggest threat to humanity) so the cities won’t have to be too huge! Hmmmmm, what else? My imagination can go wild on this one!! Maybe a colony on Mars? Flying cities here on Earth? Who knows what the future may bring!
