The Post-Carbon Institute is in the process of evolving from a virtual to a real-world think-tank, drawing together some of the leading figures in the sustainability movement while making interesting use of new-media crowd-sourcing techniques. Warren Karlenzig, one of PCI's Fellows, made some start-of-the-decade predictions here. Among the trends he's watching: the new biking culture, urban agriculture, drought preparations, resiliency planning, cellulosic biofuels, the use of ICT (information and communications technologies) to enhance sustainable cities. Columbus has some skin in a number of these games, but my sense is that we're still hedging our bets.
