'100 Years Left' Scientists Warn Of Trigger To Mass Biological Event Wiping Out Humans

Recommended Posts

Experts today sounded the death knell for life on Earth warning we are devastatingly closed to reaching an evolutionary “tipping point”.

Alarming new statistics paint a Doomsday picture of the crippling effect human activity has had on the earth and the species around us.

And experts’ have put out a grim warning claiming that humans are heading the same way as the dinosaurs, with as little as 100 years left on the planet.

Research, published in the journal Science, claims the loss of so many animals could trigger the planet’s sixth mass biological extinction event.

Previous disasters - like the total disappearance of dinosaurs 65million years ago - are thought to have been caused by natural disasters or catastrophic asteroid strikes.

But our current collision course with Armageddon is entirely of our own making, according to Rodolfo Dirzo, Professor of Biology at Stanford University.

In the journal he presented evidence of more than 320 bird and animal species vanishing since the year 1500 due to human existence.

No mention of house prices are expected to soar on the news. Prime property will always have demand....

Well, yes. In a hundred years, we'll be living in space, and Earth will be a backwater.

Why would anyone want to live in space, given its deleterious health effects?

Because planets are incredibly inefficient, and space makes up about 99.9999999999999999999999999999999999% of the universe.

There's not enough of space. If one person could monopolise it, and rent it out, they would.

The race for ownership of the stars IS ON!

But you can't breathe a vacuum.

But you can't breathe a vacuum.

Either you carry an atmosphere around with you, or you redesign your body so it doesn't need to breathe. Even if we never figure out how to transfer brains into computers, sooner or later we'll replace most of the organic bits with mechanical components and electronics which don't need oxygen.

David Bowie predicted "Five Years! That's all we've got" in 1973, but then went on to confess that "His brain hurt a lot!"

I have the same problem when he sings.

Presumably, he was predicting the coming of Thatcher.
