Futurist Dr. James Canton says the future will be driven by innovation related to alternative fuels—which sounds like welcome news, given the rising price of gas and questions about the world’s fuel supply. Dr. Canton has been predicting key trends shaping our world for over 30 years and is the author of The Extreme Future: The Top Trends That Will Reshape the World in the 21st Century and Technofutures: How Leading-Edge Innovations Will Transform Business in the 21st Century. He interviews theoretical physicist Dr. Michio Kaku Wednesday night as part of the Kentucky Author Forum, but took some time today to speak with WFPL’s Todd Mundt.
