Twenty years from now, in the 2030’s….
If you think about this, 20 years ago was 1990’s, which we all remember, so this is the time frame I’m talking about here.
The world population and each national population is going up. We’re estimated to be at 7 billion people on the planet now. Starting from this perception, I can see us at 8 billion in the 2030’s.
In looking at this time period, I’m seeing the need for food to be so great that governments and corporations will use chemistry to make a “greenish” food made from tree leaves and other non-human foods. It’s possible that it will be made from plant life that is more than just from trees and eventually made from grass.
It isn’t unthinkable that some chemical company would seek and find a way to make plant-life that animals eat readily into a food that humans can digest. It will be sold in any nation that has a shortage of regular human food or vegetables. With each country’s population growing, this could mean that it will be sold worldwide. And purchased by those who are hungry – which could be everywhere, also.
Only 20 years away.
