  【阅读文摘】             2050年生活会是怎么样?

    

                      导读:

                                 这是一篇预言家们对2050年人类生活的暢想。他们预言到2050年

                       是“全息反馈电视”时代, 人们将会看到,闻到和触摸到电视上看到的  东西。

                       但水将成为会变成人类的最严重的问题,对水的需求可能增长十倍,如果

                       我们现在不采取行动,有可能为水而发生战争。在交通方面,汽车将用新

                       的清洁燃料,由电脑控制,速度更快而不会有交通事故的发生。太空飞机

                       将应用于运输,从洛杉矶到东京的飞行仅需两小时。机器人将得到广泛应

                       用。医学技术将征服了许多疾病。现在科学家们已经发现如何控制基因,

                       克隆动物。到2050年,科学家们将能克隆的人,但他们应该这样做吗?

                              此文难度不大,可用作高中或大学一、二级课外阅读材料。

                                             How will life in 2050 be like?   

 

        What  picture do you have of the future?  Will life in the future be better,  worse or the same as 

now? What do you hope about the future?

        Futurologists  predict  that  life will probably be very different in 2050 in all the fields of activity, 

from entertainment to technology.  First of all,  it seems that TV channels will have disappeared by 

2050.  Instead,  people  will  choose  a  programme  from  a  'menu'  and  a computer will send the 

programme directly to the television.  Today, we can use the World Wide Web to read newspaper 

stories and see pictures on a computer  thousands  of  kilometers  away.  By  2050,  music,  films, 

programmes, newspapers and books will come to us by computer.

       Then, 'Holographic Feedback TV' will have arrived: holograms  are  pictures  that have height, 

width and depth. Simple holograms exist today and 'virtual reality' games are already popular.  By 

2050, we will be able to see, smell and touch the things that we see on television.

        In what concerns the environment, water will have become one of our most serious problems. 

In many places,  agriculture  is changing and they are growing fruit and vegetables to export.  This 

uses a  lot  of  water.  Demand for water will increase ten times between now and 2050 and there 

could be serious shortages. Some futurologists predict that water could be the cause of war if we 

don't act now.

       In  transport,  cars  wil l run  on  new,  clean  fuels  and  they  will  go  very  fast . Cars  will have 

computers to control the speed of the car and there won't  be  any  accidents.  Today,  many  cars

have computers that tell drivers exactly where they are. By 2050,  the computer will control the car 

and drive it to your destination. On the other hand, space planes will take people  halfway  around 

the world in two hours. Nowadays, the United States Shuttle  can go into space and land on Earth 

again. By 2050, space planes will fly all over the  world  and  people  will  fly  from  Los  Angels  to 

Tokyo in just two hours.

       In  the  domain  of  technology,  robots  will have replaced people in factories. Many factories 

already use robots. Big companies prefer robots- they do not ask for pay  rises  or  go  on  strike, 

and they work 24 hours a day. By 2050,  we  will  see  robots  everywhere -- in factories, schools, 

offices, hospitals, shops and homes.

      Lat but not least, medicine technology will have conquered many diseases.  Today,  there are 

electronic devices that connect directly to the brain to help people hear. By 2050,  we will be able 

to help blind and deaf people  see  again  and  hear  again.  Scientists  have  discovered  how  to 

control genes. They have already produced clones of animals. By 2050,  scientists  will be able to 

produce clones of people and decide how they look,  how they behave and how much intelligence 

they have. Scientists will be able to do these things - but should they?
