The National Geographic channel’s Aftermath series is an interesting and engaging speculation on humanity’s future. Part fact and part extrapolation, Aftermath presents a different vision of the future in each episode: doubled population or no more oil for example. Each episode presents a message of warning and a message of hope. The episodes that I saw should be broadcast on the big networks to get more people thinking about the ramifications of their choices and daily practices.
