      The world will not be divided by narrow domestic boundaries. We all can move freely. There will be scientific awareness among masses.

      I have two rather opposing views of our future… As I fan of Star Trek, I’d really love to see our society evolve in that direction. However, my more realistic vision of our future is more dark with the impact of severe global warming, melting of the ice caps, coastal flooding, desertification of large areas of the equatorial zone… and… well not something I like to think too much about.

      Woooow, big question. I really hope we can get a grip on this plastics crisis, I love the sea and I think all the creatures living in it are fascinating. I want future generations to be able to see and enjoy the things I have been lucky enough to experience, not be looking at the sea as a giant bin. I hope we can start to see reversal of what we have caused soon, if everyone gets on board I think we can do it!

      Now that is a very interesting question! I think the biggest concern that will face us in future is climate change as a result of global warming. Unless governments and big corporations take action, climate change is only going to get worse. Recently we’ve seen a lot more severe weather happening, and the weather in the UK alone has got much warmer. I think in the near future this will get a lot worse and so will flooding and rising sea levels as the polar ice caps melt. It’s sad to think about, but the future for the earth doesn’t look bright unless we take action now!

      I woudl like to see a drastic change in the use of plastics. we need to realsie that recycling is not solving the problem and we have to find ways of repalcing plastic with eco-friendly materials. We also need to realise that destroying forests will have catastrophic effects. Unless we do this, our planet will have no green left, sea level will rise and marine life will no longer exist….
      Too dramatic? maybe! I want my children, grandchildre and great-great-great grandchildren to experience life and see the beauties of our planet the same way I did!
