It's easy to make futurists look silly. For every prediction that comes true (or that sort of comes true—Nostradamus predicted that someone named "Hister" would do something terrible one day), about 20,000 more do not. - Are you Cornucopians or neo-Malthusians/doom-sayers? Or have you another alternative(s)? E.g. we will stagnate so and so till the sun is shining?
