What will the earth be like in (say) ten years from now?

Level: A.2.2. (180 words)

Target language: The use of will for long term predictions based on facts.

Transport, technology, food, water supply and energy sources will doubtlessly become major issues within the next ten years. Fossil fuels will become more a more expensive and to such an extent, that middle classes will stop purchasing cars and will turn to public transport means or bicycles instead. Of course other energy sources will be available, but only for the very rich.

Technology remarkable breakthroughs will settle outstanding headlines on our (digital?) newspapers headlines. Smaller devices implanted on our own bodies will make our lives easier. Our brains will become lazier though. Robots will fight for us at war, but there will be no mercy for the losers. Slavery will be the future of prisioners.

A few hundreds of languages and animal spicies will be lost forever. It won’t be necessary to make a translation as computers (or whatever they are at that time) will perfectly do this task for us. On the other hand, some living creatures will be extiguinshed or desappear from earth.

The positive part of the topic though will be medical discoveries.  We will certainly have a cure for cancer, ebola and AIDS .
