This image was taken back in 2000. What will the picture be in the next 50 years? How can we have a sustainable world with our population out of control? Will there be enough oxygen, food, clean water, land, etc in the next century? Remember these are visible lights from space and the dark areas are deserts, tundra, low lite human settlements, and what little is left of our forests.
