If we always think like that nothing would get done, because the people in 50 years will also say not for another 50 years.
The future is NOW! We make the future happen. This is a time of great change, we ARE in the future people have always imagined, it's just not complete yet.

If we want to slow down global warming why don't we get rid of all cars that are not hybrids and put hybrid engines into every car so that every car has great mileage and will pollute less into the air. Why are we waiting to solve a problem that is so huge. Maybe the problem isnt as big as it is put out to be. If you ponder over this for a while then you will realize that you will know when global warming is a problem because then hybrid cars will be on the car market at a cheaper price and the cars will be more known.

IMO the more realistic future would likely be autopilot cars than flying ones. There will be sensors in the pavement and cars will be completely computerized.
