    They’re gonna say another 5 years in 5 years. I personally don’t think our planet is fucked yet. Certainly don’t hope so. Compared to it’s former state it is fucked, but I don’t think we are headed for a new Mars just yet.

    The planet has been in far worse shape than this before and survived as a haven for living things just fine. I do not buy the notion that we’re headed for a Mars style meltdown. However, we might be headed for a massive extinction event of 50%-90% of all species. All that means is that there will be an evolutionary explosion over the next 5-10 million years as life fills niches formerly occupied by species that went extinct. Humanity may wipe out humanity but I am not sure we can yet wipe out life. Temperatures on earth have been as much as 7 degrees centigrade higher than now before and the current rise is projected at 2-3 degrees tops.

    But technological civilization? Goodnight!
