Your children's children will be driving 2-cylinder cars, and will be happy to have them.

Don't forget we are already in 3-cylinder-land, with the Geo Metro.

At some point dino fuel will be reserved for long-haul truckers, with the rest of us restricted to electric cars powered by nuclear electricity production. Or if we're lucky, fusion electricity production.

You'll see a lot more motor scooters and bicycles.

Basically, the one-world global economy is all about making the serfs of the world all function at the same level. So China/India serfs need to be pulled up a bit and the American/European serfs reduced in lifestyle.

Progress on this has certainly been made in my lifetime.

People will gawk at Lincoln Navigators and Hummers in museums and laugh the same way we laugh at Edsel Fords today.
