The news is full of dire predictions for our future: peak oil, peak food, over-population, climate change, disease pandemics, and more. To top it off, social media connects us to an overwhelming number of opinions on these subjects. How do we know which sources to trust? How can we best inform ourselves? And, how do we balance science and self-interest as we prepare for an uncertain future?
