Consider the prediction scenarios used by the Pew Institute study (Table 12.3) with the global predictions made by the Battelle Institute (Table 12.4) and the predictions made by the staff of Popular Mechanics (Table 12.6).
Did the similar predictions between organizations come to pass or are they possible in the near future? Why do you think multiple organizations had similar predictions? Is a prediction made by more than one source more likely of being accurate? Why or why not?
