I am currently in a class that covers the 7 Revolutions of the world (Population, Resource Managemnt, Technology, Information, Economic Integration, Conflict, and Governance. Over the semester we have discussed problems and concerns that we will face in the future in dealing with the 7 Revolutions. My main concerns was resource managment. We USE, USE, and USE our resources and continue to pollute our enivornment. However, we are comming to a time where we are running out of resources, and the world is full of pollution, and we do not know how to fix it. I have made a presentation that shows some scary facts to get you thinking about what we are doing to our enviroment, and how important it is for us to recycle.
