I recently read Dan Brown’s Inferno which revolves around the theme of over-population and the threat it presents to future generations. This article talks about another future threat–global warming and the increasing number of natural disasters. The facts presented in this article about the increase in natural disasters in the future are not surprising but it is interesting to see how unprepared we are to face the impending doom.
I think the increase in natural disasters may just be nature’s way of posing its own solution to the aforementioned problem of overpopulation. Take a look at the article to see if you agree, and read Inferno to see how Dan Brown’s characters find a solution to this problem in the novel.
