Arthur C Clarke's wishes

In December 2007, "marking his 90th orbit of the sun" Sir Arthur expressed three wishes: to see some evidence of alien life, to see "us kick our current addiction to oil and adopt clean energy sources", and finally, peace in his adopted nation.
Continued research on ET's and UFO's may find success sooner or later. Political sanity is the likely solution for Wish No 3.

And for wish No 2? That will require a combination of continued research (into alternate, green energy sources), and exemplary political sanity (including wisdom and will) to reduce our addiction to 'black' fossil fuels. If only, as a visionary, he had given us an indication of things to come, just as he had predicted the use of geosynchronous orbit.
RIP, Sir Arthur. The rest of us will live in hope, and try to live by the message of another environmental visionary Jacques Cousteau - "If we were logical, the future would be bleak indeed. But we are more than logical. We are human beings, and we have faith and we have hope, and we can work".
