What Will it Look Like? The World in 2099
By Dr. C.S. Mahrok
WILL WE MAKE IT TO THE END OF THE CENTURY?
No matter how politicians or pundits try to spin the information, the truth is painfully obvious when you look at the numbers " at our current rate of consumption, the world will have used all natural resources by the end of this century. The demand for everything from gas and coal, to food and water continues to rise and unless we do something soon, the world will face a crisis never before seen. How long can the world continue at this rate? When will we run out of the very things we need to survive?
An engineer for the Department of Defense, Dr. C.S. Mahrok has written the, The World in 2099, a new book that provides readers with an overview of current global trends and predictions of the changes we can expect in the coming decades. Dr. Mahrok translates the latest data from United Nations, the U.S. government, and renowned academics into digestible chapters that both concerned readers and experts will find enlightening. The World in 2099 not only stands as a wake up call for things to come, but a comprehensive reference to the current state of the world.
The study of industrial revolutions has been a personal interest of mine, " says Dr. Mahrok. This book is the result of that work, which offers the reader a glimpse into the future of our world, predicated upon and derived from our past. "
Topics covered in The World in 2099 include:
- A brief history of the industrial and technological revolutions that set the stage for our current crisis.
- Why the seven billion people already living on earth present a serious strain on our resources and how we can manage further population growth.
- Our finite mineral resources and how they`ll likely be depleted in the next 50-100 years
- What the next energy crisis might look like, especially when our fossil fuel supply runs dry
- How the combination of a booming population and decrease in natural food resources mean that a global food shortage is coming faster than previously predicted.
Dr. C.S. Mahrok was educated at University of Saskatchewan and earned his doctorate in Thermodynamics at Syracuse University. Since then he has worked in both the private and public sectors as a mechanical engineer. His current work for the Department of Defense has focused on the development of various weapon systems and energy conservation. He is a lifelong student, specializing in the history of industrial revolutions and technology.
The World in 2099 is available in print and e-book formats from Amazon.com, Barnes & Nobel.com, and iBooks.
