Summary "Would you like to know the future? And, will it be what we think it will be, or will today's predictions be laughably wrong? In Hello from 2030, middle graders get a peek at what's coming just around the corner. In the year 2030, today's kids will be grappling with issues adults are just starting to address now. No, not flying cars: real world conundrums like, what will 8 billion people eat? How can humans produce less trash? Which cool technologies will be used to figure all this out? And, how do people predict the future anyway? This book gives kids not only plenty to dream, argue, and think about, but also a first-hand look at futurology, the science of predicting the future."-- Provided by publisher.
