An interesting proposition that sounds very exciting. The author says that "one day" all this will happen. But there's no indication how far in the future "one day" is. Is is 50 years from now? 500 years? 5,000 years?
There's a group that calls itself the WWF. I had to do a search on the Internet to find out what this acronym stands for. My best guess is "World Wildlife Fund". They seem to think that we're destroying our planet and that our civilization will not last much longer unless drastic action is taken.
