Let's think back just 20 years. At this time Kodak had 170,000 employees and sold 85% of all photo paper worldwide.|
All medical X-rays used Kodak film. Camera's, both commercial and industrial, security camera's- imaging of all sorts.V Within just a few years, Kodak's business model disappeared and they went bankrupt. Who thought that just a few years later almost nobody would take pictures on film again?
Welcome to the 4th Industrial Revolution. Welcome to the Exponential Age. Software will disrupt most traditional industries in the next 5-10 years. Let's look at Uber.
Uber Technologies Inc. is an American online transportation network company headquartered in San Francisco using a software tool, they don't own any cars, but are now the biggest taxi company on Earth.
Every year artificial Intelligence is increasing. Computers become exponentially better in understanding.
In the US, many young lawyers already don't get jobs. Because of IBM Watson, you can get legal advice (so far for more or less basic stuff) within seconds, with 90% accuracy compared with 70% accuracy when done by humans. The forecast is that there will be 90% less lawyers in the future, only specialists will remain.
Watson already helps nurses diagnosing cancer, 4 times more accurate than human nurses.
The first self-driving cars are already on our streets. In a few years, the complete automobile industry will start to be disrupted. Many people will not want to own a car anymore. Why owning a car when you call a car with the cell phone. The car without driver will show up at your location and drives to your destination.
Imagine, no looking for a parking space anymore. One can even be productive while driving.
Some people think that our kids will never get a driver's license and will never own a car.
The infra-structure of cities will change, because we will need 90-95% less cars.
Maybe we transform former parking spaces into parks.
1.2 million people die each year in car accidents. Insurance companies tell us that there is one accident every 60,000 mi (100,000 km), with autonomous driving that will drop to one accident in 6 million mi (10 million km). Million of lives each year are saved.
Most car companies will probably become bankrupt. Traditional car companies try the evolutionary approach and just build a better car, while tech companies (Tesla, Apple, Google) will do the revolutionary approach and build a computer on wheels.
Now think about insurance companies. Less accidents equals less costs, premiums have to go down. Their car insurance business model will shrink.
But there is more to it: Real estate will change. In a self-driving car you can work while you commute, people will move further away to live in a more beautiful neighborhood.
Electric cars will become mainstream in a few years.
Cities will be less noisy because all new cars will run on electricity. Electricity will become more and more clean, because Solar production has been on an exponential curve for 30 years.
Last year, the highest amount of solar energy panels were installed on Earth. Energy companies are desperately trying to limit access to the grid to prevent competition from home solar installations, but that can't last. Technology will take care of that strategy.
With cheaper and cleaner electricity many water shortage problems can be solved. Desalination of salt water now only needs 2kWh per cubic meter (@ 0.25 cents). Imagine what will be possible if anyone has access to clean water - for low costs.
Remember the Star Trek movies? They used a Tricorder to check on someones health. Our technicians were able to produce such a Tricorder. The price will be announced this year. There many companies who will build a this medical device (called the "Tricorder", that works with your phone, which takes your retina scan, your blood sample and you breath into it.
It then analyses 54 bio-markers that will identify nearly any disease. It will be cheap, so in a few years many people on this planet will have access to high class medical analysis, for very low costs.
Another computer program is called "moodies" which can already tell in which mood you're in.
Over the next few years there will be apps that can tell by your facial expressions, if you are lying.
Imagine a political debate where it's being displayed when they're telling the truth and when they're not.
You heard about 3D printing?
The price of the cheapest 3D printer came down from $18,000 to $400 within 10 years. In the same time, it became 100 times faster. All major shoe companies have already started 3D printing shoes.
Some spare airplane parts are already 3D printed in remote airports. The international space station uses a printer that eliminates the need for the large amount of spare parts they used to have in the past.
It is promised that new smart phones will have 3D scanning possibilities. Just 3D scan your feet and print your perfect shoe at home. Overtime the prices will become affordable.
In China, they already 3D printed and built a complete 6-story office building.
Calculations go that in 10 years, 10% of everything that's being produced will be 3D printed.
There is of course one big problem: 70-80% of today's jobs will disappear in the next 20 years. There will be a lot of new jobs, but for uneducated workers it will be very tough.
Less than 50 years ago many people have worked in agriculture. Companies working on a cheap agricultural robot. Farmers in 3rd world countries can then become managers of their field instead of working all day on their fields, and they will need less helpers.
Laboratories have already produced veal in a Petri dish. This meat will be cheaper than cow produced veal. When you drive through the country you see that about 30% of all agricultural surfaces is used for cows. Just add all these huge buildings where cows are held.
Imagine if we don't need that space anymore.
Several companies will bring insect protein to the market shortly. It contains more protein than meat. It will be labeled as "alternative protein source" (because most people still reject the idea of eating insects).
The way how to get education has changed in a big way.
In Africa and Asia one can buy cheap smart phones at $10. The sale of smart phones is skyrocketing. That means, everyone has the same access to instant world class education.
There is an increasing amount of nonprofits offering affordable education. Khan Academy is a non-profit educational organization created in 2006 by educator Salman Khan. The academy is releasing education software in Indonesia, in Arabic, Suaheli and Chinese. They will offer the English app for free, so that children can become fluent in English.
BSB is offering education for everyone who has access to the internet.

Once upon a time humans had outdoor fun, everybody was able to walk outside...|
Once upon a time the Rio Grande was a 'grande' river
Mighty enough to build this canyon
Having enough water to feed many cultures...
Once upon a time humans were able to take
water out of the Rio Grande
were able to plant produce + crops along its banks...
Once upon a time produce was affordable, everybody was able to buy vegetables...
Once upon a time parents were able to feed their children...
Once upon a time milk was affordable, everybody was able to buy milk...
Once upon a time people could afford a home ...

Conservation Education (CE) is the combination of two words that have become one word to educators.
CE is the ability to give people opportunities to grow in knowledge and create changes to their life style and their environment,to have a better life, to have a safer future!
