A child born in 2019 will turn 30 by the middle of the century. How will her interactions with energy change by then?
Interchange co-host Shayle Kann recently penned a piece celebrating his colleague’s expected daughter. He outlined eight different scenarios that “bug” will face in her lifetime â€” and then asked readers to bet on his predictions.
ShayleÂ writes: “The reason Iâ€™m introducing Bug relates to a famous quote from Bill Gatesâ€™ 1996 memoir: ‘We always overestimate the change that will occur in the next two years and underestimate the change that will occur in the next 10. Donâ€™t let yourself be lulled into inaction.’ In 10 years, Bug will be entering 5th grade. If we underestimate the change that will happen by then, just imagine what her world will look like as she reaches these milestones and those beyond.”
In this episode, we decide whether or not to take Shayleâ€™s bets about the future.
Here are Shayle’s predictions:
