By Mark Stevenson
while abruptly faced together with his personal mortality, Mark Stevenson-a author, deep-thinker, and stand-up comedian-began to give some thought to what the longer term holds for our species. "The previous is a international country," writes Stevenson. "By my research it is a bit like France-in that i have been to elements of it and eaten a few great nutrients there. however the destiny? the longer term is an unknown territory-and there is no such thing as a guidebook." therefore, his ambition was once born.
Stevenson set out easily, asking, "What's next?" after which traveled the globe in pursuit of the solutions. alongside the best way, he visited the Australian outback to go to the farmers who can retailer us from weather swap, met a robotic with temper swings, and talked to the Spaniard who is placing a lodge in area. whereas a few should be beaten, or maybe dismayed by means of the looming realities of genome sequencing, artificial biology, a nuclear renaissance, and carbon scrubbing, Stevenson continues to be, good, confident. Drawing on his singular humor and storytelling to collapse those occasionally advanced discoveries, An Optimist's travel of the Future paints a perfectly readable, and fully captivating portrait of the place we are going to be after we develop up- and why it is not so scary.
