Where Do We Go From Here

718 words - 3 pages

Since the lndustrial Revolution, the world has changed dramatically. Almost every
aspect of human life is different than it was 100 years ago. We have airplanes that travel
500 mph. Cars that are run by batteries. We have miniature computers that we carry
around in our pockets. We pay almost $5 for a gallon of gas. We turn on our HD color

needed to accomplish a feat like this seems rather futile when the rest of humanity is
sitting on Earth killing it. So if we rule out the idea of space, then what are we left with?
We're left with Earth. The damage that we have already inflicted upon the planet may be irreversible but that doesn't mean we need to keep doing it. Already today we have
people thinking of how we can stop the damage that we are doing. We have our hybrids
