    Human Race 'Will Be Extinct Within 100 Years', Claims Leading Scientist

    As the scientist who helped eradicate smallpox he certainly know a thing or two about extinction. And now Professor Frank Fenner, emeritus professor of microbiology at the Australian National University, has predicted that the human race will be extinct within the next 100 years. He has claimed that the human race will be unable to survive a population explosion and 'unbridled consumption.’

    Fenner told The Australian newspaper that 'homo sapiens will become extinct, perhaps within 100 years.' 'A lot of other animals will, too,' he added. 'It's an irreversible situation. I think it's too late. I try not to express that because people are trying to do something, but they keep putting it off.' Since humans entered an unofficial scientific period known as the Anthropocene - the time since industrialisation - we have had an effect on the planet that rivals any ice age or comet impact, he said.

    Fenner, 95, has won awards for his work in helping eradicate the variola virus that causes smallpox and has written or co-written 22 books. He announced the eradication of the disease to the World Health Assembly in 1980 and it is still regarded as one of the World Health Organisation's greatest achievements. He was also heavily involved in helping to control Australia's myxomatosis problem in rabbits.

    Last year official UN figures estimated that the world’s population is currently 6.8 billion. It is predicted to exceed seven billion by the end of 2011. Fenner blames the onset of climate change for the human race’s imminent demise. He said: 'We'll undergo the same fate as the people on Easter Island. 'Climate change is just at the very beginning. But we're seeing remarkable changes in the weather already.'

    'The Aborigines showed that without science and the production of carbon dioxide and global warming, they could survive for 40,000 or 50,000 years. ‘But the world can't. The human species is likely to go the same way as many of the species that we've seen disappear.'

    Retired professor Stephen Boyden, a colleague of Professor Fenner, said that while there was deep pessimism among some ecologists, others had a more optimistic view. 'Frank may well be right, but some of us still harbour the hope that there will come about an awareness of the situation and, as a result the revolutionary changes necessary to achieve ecological sustainability.'

    Simon Ross, the vice-chairman of the Optimum Population Trust, said: 'Mankind is facing real challenges including climate change, loss of bio-diversity and unprecedented growth in population.'

    Professor Fenner's chilling prediction echoes recent comments by Prince Charles who last week warned of ‘monumental problems’ if the world’s population continues to grow at such a rapid pace. And it comes after Professor Nicholas Boyle of Cambridge University said that a 'Doomsday' moment will take place in 2014 - and will determine whether the 21st century is full of violence and poverty or will be peaceful and prosperous. in the last 500 years there has been a cataclysmic 'Great Event' of international significance at the start of each century, he claimed.

    In 2006 another esteemed academic, Professor James Lovelock, warned that the world's population may sink as low as 500 million over the next century due to global warming. He claimed that any attempts to tackle climate change will not be able to solve the problem, merely buy us time.

    Well, it happened to the dinosaurs, so I'm sure that our day will come eventually, in a few thousand years. There is probably not a lot that we can do about it at this point. I have read quite a few decent articles, and I have watched quite a few credible documentaries, over the years, on this subject. One thing we can do is learn not to take the Al Gore, Danny Glover, Ultra-Liberal, Hollywood dominated view point too seriously. To quote George Harrison, "All things must pass".

    10 Ways The Human Race Could Become Extinct
    Published by The Auditor
    June 30, 2008, Category: Physics

    The frightening ways that showcase how fragile we truly are.

    1. Global Pandemic
    When an extremely virulent disease begins infecting large populations, a pandemic is declared by WHO (World Health Organisation). There have been many pandemics in the past, examples being ‘The Black Death’, which was a strain of bubonic plague striking Europe, and the ‘Spanish Flu’ in the 1910s. Influenza is a particular threat – it mutates rapidly and we cannot vaccinate ourselves against it. It has been responsible for decimation of entire populations and is still a threat today. If a hyper-contagious virus were released into the ecosphere it would spread rapidly along transport routes. Aeroplanes would become localised infections, the hosts carrying it to new places. New York, London and other large cities would quickly become abandoned. Pandemics also make excellent films, although the effects are usually exaggerated. (‘I am Legend’ particularly – no virus can turn a person feral while keeping them alive).

    2. Extreme-adverse Weather
    Either we could cause the weather or it could be a freak occurrence. Phrases like global warming and climate change are thrown around a lot these days and they can be responsible for some weather changes, but we underestimate nature’s resilience. Neither the less, a new ice age could emerge (although we are still in one), in which most surface life is killed. Again, films like ‘The Day after Tomorrow’ exaggerate the effects.

    3. Gamma ray burst
    Even we cannot dodge the light. Gamma rays are emitted from most stars, although our own is pretty docile in that respect, although if a star within a few thousand light years were to go Hypernova (a bigger supernova), the waves of radiation would reach us, practically cooking the surface of the planet. We would have to live underground to survive, but all plant life would certainly die, so we would have to rely on green houses and hydroponics. The frightening thing is that a star near us may have just gone Hypernova, but we won’t know about it until the radiation reaches us.

    4. Nuclear War
    Nuclear weapons are mankind’s stupidest invention. To quote terry Pratchett – “Never give the monkey the keys to the banana plantation”, and unfortunately we still don’t get on well with one another enough to get rid of them. On declaration of nuclear war, major population centres would be destroyed and satellites would be knocked out of orbit, rendering all devices such as mobile phones and computers useless. Another effect is the raising of several million tonnes of ash and dust into the atmosphere, blacking the skies and wiping out most life.

    5. Asteroid Strike
    One of the most well known doomsday scenarios is one we cannot really do anything about. Every year thousands of basketball sized objected hit the Earth. It only takes one a kilometre across to plummet through the atmosphere remains large enough to destroy a city. One that is a few kilometres in diameter hitting the Earth would release the energy of several million nuclear devices.

    6. Strangelets
    The least known method of human extinction, strangelets are the result of overly energetic ‘strange’ quarks mixing with ‘up’ and ‘down’ quarks. These stranglets on contact with ordinary matter will convert it to strange matter, and release another strangelet. If one were to hit the Earth, the planet would be reduced to a hot lump of strange matter. Currently they have only been created for thousandths of a second in particle accelerators.

    7. Black Hole
    Pretty obvious what would happen. If one were created on Earth the planet would be sucked in, along with the rest of the solar system. However, nobody really knows what goes on inside a black hole, so maybe we would be lucky.

    8. Judgement Day
    The Bible says in revelations that on Judgement day or Rapture, God will arrive on Earth to judge the living and the dead. Amusingly, if he arrived tomorrow, his work would be duly archived on the internet with thousands of mobile phone pictures and videos.

    9. Re-orientation of Earth’s Axis
    Also known as ‘pole shift theory’ this would happen if the Earth changed its axis (currently it rests at 23.5 degrees – this is the reason we have seasons). The north and south poles would flip, not only ruining the GPS system but also causing massive change to the environment and redistributing the oceans across inhabited landmass.

    10. The Big Crunch
    The one we cannot escape. Theorised as one of the methods of Universal decay, the Big Crunch is the reverse of the Big Bang. Gravity at the centre of the Universe will overwhelm the expanding force and begin to pull the Universe back to a singularity again. There is no chance of escape from this one – there is nowhere to go. Luckily it is only a theory, and would not happen for billions of years anyway, so we would be long gone.

    I don't know when humanity as a whole will cease to exsist but one thing
    is for certain,it will happen.I believe there has been 5 major extinctions in
    Earth's history and the last was the Dinosaurs.It would take either a Nuclear
    War,Asteroid strike or a great plague to do the human race in.It is just way
    to big now for just a few local events or even an Ice Age to do us in.

    Extinctions are believed to be a part of a normal cycle of occurrences within' the Earth's history.

    Earth faces sixth mass extinction

    19:00 18 March 2004 by Anil Ananthaswamy

    The Earth may be on the brink of a sixth mass extinction on a par with the five others that have punctuated its history, suggests the strongest evidence yet.

    Butterflies in Britain are going extinct at an even greater rate than birds, according to the most comprehensive study ever of butterflies, birds, and plants.

    There is growing concern over the rate at which species of plants and animals are disappearing around the world. But until now the evidence for such extinctions has mainly come from studies of birds. "The doubters could always turn around and say that there's something peculiar about birds that makes them susceptible to the impact of man on the environment," says Jeremy Greenwood of the British Trust for Ornithology in Norfolk, and one of the research team.

    Now there is concrete evidence that insects - which account for more than half the described species on Earth, are disappearing faster than birds.

    "If we can extrapolate that pattern of the British butterflies to other British insects, and indeed to invertebrates across the planet, we are obviously looking at a very serious bio-diversity crisis," says team member Mark Telfer of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds in Bedfordshire, UK.

    Major ecosystems

    Six large sets of data collected over the past 20 to 40 years in England, Wales, and Scotland were analysed by Jeremy Thomas of the Natural Environment Research Council Centre for Ecology and Hydrology in Dorchester, UK and colleagues. More than 20,000 volunteers submitted over 15 million records of species.

    The researchers found that populations of 71 percent of the butterfly species have decreased over the last 20 years, compared to 56 percent for birds and 28 percent for plants. Two butterfly species (3.4 percent of total) became extinct, compared to six (0.4 percent) of the plant species surveyed. None of the native breeding birds went extinct in the last 20 years.

    Crucially, the decline in populations happened in all the major ecosystems and was distributed evenly across Britain, rather than in just a few heavily degraded regions.

    The crisis could be foreshadowing a sixth mass extinction, warn the researchers. Life on Earth has already seen five mass extinctions in its four billion year old history. The last one, which wiped out the dinosaurs, happened 65 million years ago at the end of the Cretaceous period and was possibly caused by a giant meteor collision.

    The current extinction is being precipitated by the widespread loss of habitats because of human activity, according to Tefler. The remaining habitats are small and fragmented, and their quality has been degraded because of pollution.

    Nitrogen pollution

    This claim is strongly supported, at least for plants, by a second study published alongside Thomas' paper in Science. Carly Stevens of the Open University in Milton Keynes, UK, and her colleagues studied the diversity of plants in 68 grassland sites in the UK. The number of species in each site varied greatly, from a mean of 7.2 to 27.6 species per site. Nitrogen pollution was found to blame for this variability.

    "We found strong evidence that the decline in the species richness of grasslands within the UK was linked to nitrogen pollution," says Stevens. "In areas of high nitrogen pollution the species richness was much lower than in areas of low pollution, such as the Scottish highlands."

    Atmospheric nitrogen pollution is caused mainly by the burning of fossil fuels and from intensive agriculture, especially from the volatilisation of animal waste. This nitrogen is deposited on the soil, favouring the growth of some species to the cost of others.

    "Evidence of a global extinction crisis has come into stark focus with these important results," comments Mark Collins of the United Nations Environment Programme's World Conservation Monitoring Centre in Cambridge, UK.

    We are actually at the end of our time according to how long higher lifeforms has lived before. (A short history of nearly everything).

    Well, since the Germanic race has taken on such a defeatist and nihilistic state-of-mind, the human race might as well become extinct within a 100 years. Once Western civilization collapses entirely, that wicked East will eventually meet its demise. Sort of ironic, really.

    Not really, they will just be stuck in their own perpetualism and stagnation. As soon as Germanics are gone, the best of the non-germanic races will just be stuck in time with no new inventions to copy from us they will just replicate over and over the last pieces of technology that was left by Germanics whitout actually advancing foward, the lowest of the non-germanics will just stay the way they are or for the ones who live in Germanic countries revert back to their natural ways.
