Read how four students see our planet in 10 years. Who do you agree with?
Martin: I'm really optimistic about the future. Just
think about the progress in different areas.
Medicine and electronic technology, space
discoveries, for example. One day, I’m sure,
there will be cures for AIDS and cancer
(лекарства против СПИДа и рака).
Isabel: I am afraid of the future. Everything is chang-
ing so quickly. Bombs, pollution, dangerous
technologies, new serious diseases ... and
who’s responsible for it all? Just think of Cher-
nobyl. They say that 20,000 people will die of
cancer in the next 20 or 30 years because of
this accident. I think the next century could be
a really dangerous time.
Phil: I don’t care about the future. What’s the point
of thinking about it? I’m young. I just want to
go out with my friends, play football and have
a good time. I can’t change much in this world
until I grow up.
Henry: In ten years? I’m looking forward to it. I think
it’s going to be the age of communication.
Computer science has developed so fast.
Scientists and computers are going to control
everything. Let’s wait and see.
