In adulthood, we have realized that we have undergone a small change and although we have virtual reality games, smart watches and 3D printing, the world still has a lot to do
Unfortunately, we may never manage to create all these inventions, but what is a reality is that our planet Earth could be doomed to failure in the next 30 years .
Earth does not it will be a place we will like in 2050
1- Goodbye to our privacy
With the drones flying over the c Cities and the increase of cyberattacks, it is fair to say that we do not have much privacy. Most likely, in the year 2050, privacy could be a luxury you may have to pay .

In a matter of decades, this figure is estimated to skyrocket to more than 5,000 million people. By 2050, the population rate is estimated at around 9.7 billion, which means that more than half of the entire planet will face a water crisis.
3- Authoritarianism will return to be part of our lives
Whatever your political inclination, you can agree that society is more divided than ever . It seems that democracy is fading a bit in the 21st century.

6- Electric blackouts will be part of our daily lives
Experiencing a blackout during a storm is something we've all experienced at some point in our lives. The cause of these power outages is due to the high temperatures caused by climate change .
When this is combined with the increase in energy that we will probably consume in the next two or three decades, it will become in the trigger for the greatest shortage of energy on a large scale.
7- Cyber attacks will increase
Cyber attacks have been increasing in recent years and this has brought to light a very disturbing truth, Has technology advanced so much that we can not even control it?

8- Terminator could become real
Maybe it sounds exaggerated, but when we say that robots have the potential to enslave humanity is something that could happen much sooner than we think.

10- Population will triple
Compared with some 750 million people living in cities in 1950, a century later, in 2050, the total number of people living alone in urban areas will be 6,300 million .
Taking into account that more than three quarters of the entire planet are streets and metro stations, imagine all these people for the 2050 concentrated there.
11- Pollution levels will be deadly
It is estimated that the 6 million people could die as a result of air pollution.
As the Earth becomes increasingly hot, the toxins in the air caused by automobiles and materials from construction will spread rapidly, causing respiratory diseases and causing death.
12- The consequences of climate change will be irreversible
