The April issue of Discover magazine provides some positive perspective on the state of the world's environment, something to which I all too often do not pay enough attention. The article, "Age of Abundance," details that "thanks to the exponential growth rate of technology combined with three powerful emerging trends, we are teetering on the edge of a much better tomorrow." These three forces are "the new-found power of the do-it-yourself (DIY) innovator," the creation of wealth at much faster rates than in the past, and the dramatic increase in worldwide access to the internet over the next decade (the number of people accessing the web is expected to grow from 2 billion in 2010 to 5 billion by 2020). Consider the below infographics for perspective on the hope for our global future.
