Paul MacCready: Nature vs. Humans

The Human population is always expanding. Slowly but surely we are taking over the entire world. What most people seem to exclude though is that the earth is not expanding. It is staying at its original size. Paul MacCready is trying to get people to realize we will eventually overpopulate the world unless other energy sources are applied.

Paul is trying to find more eco friendly ways to getting around. He has already made a solar- powered car and a solar-powered airplane. Now he is working on smaller, lighter reconnaissance vehicles to observe the world. These inventions will hopefully slow the speed of humanity’s descent. He believes there is still hope to make the world a better place for the next generation. He believes we are now in control. “We now wield the paintbrush.” We must learn from nature to create a better existence for our next generation.

There is still time to correct what we wronged. Paul MacCready believes the key is in eco friendly vehicles. I recommend this video if you like flight and robotics. Paul MacCready is trying to get people to realize we will eventually overpopulate the world unless other energy sources are applied.
