      Abundant clean energy would be liofe and world changing.
      Physicists have been working on nuclear fussion reactors for years, a breakthrough in this science could power nations without the nead for fossil fuels fo renergy.

      I agree… abundant clean energy would change the world for ever. Renewable energy sources look attractive in this respect but nuclear fusion (what drives the Sun) is really the only realistic option.

      As Nik and Martin have said, hopefully technology will advance enough that we can utilise the renewable energy sources so we can slow down the warming of the planet.

      I also think space travel will be important – there are some scientists who have predicted that in 250 million years we will have extreme global warming (could spiral to 70oC). Perhaps we can work out the technology to live on Mars, or venture outside the Milky Way like Star Trek!
