in the movies we see how people are driving flying autobiles and living in huge 34,000 ft tall or more towers touching the sky. But in reality its a myth about our world would become something like that. i think those construction workers developers are bull crap with thier dream. those things will never happend because of our global warning and gravity bounds

I'm not sure what you are really arguing for. If you could clear it up next round that would be great.

Anyway, I think that futuristic vision is definately possible. We already have tehonologies like hovercrafts and harrier jets. Also, buildings and architecture are advancing rapidly. No one would have thought that buildings like the Sears Tower were possible one hundred years ago. Our vision is likewise skewed.

I don't know why global warming would deter us from making these things. There is nothing to suggest we couldn't produce energy efficient flying cars and taller buildings wouldn't really pollute much more than current buildings do.

There isn't any logical reason to think that our imaginations and creations won't extend to that degree, as they have been surpassing our expectations since man's inception.

Civilization has been advancing rapidly over the last century especially and we have no reason to anticipate a slow or stoppage. While it may take a good while to reach the vision you mentioned, it is definately attainable and likely. We have no reason to believe otherwise.
