- What Isaac Asimov thought 2012 would be like: “Assuming we haven’t destroyed ourselves in a nuclear war, there will be 8-10 billion of us on this planet—and widespread hunger. These troubles can be traced back to President Ronald Reagan who smiled and waved too much.” Back in 1987, the L. Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future contest asked science fiction writers what the world would look like 25 years in the future. They were then put in a timecapsule, sealed in a bank vault and reopened earlier this year. Some common threads are the population boom, the idea that there would “probably not” be a nuclear war and most Americans would be “barely literate”. Writers include Gregory Benford, Orson Scott Card, Jack Williamson, Frederik Pohl and Gene Wolfe.
