Our Final Century

Is this Our Final Century?

In 2004, Sir Martin Rees ( a highly respected Astronomer/Physicist--England's Astronomer's Royal) published a book titled "Our Final Hour: A Scientist's warning - How Terror, Error, and Environmental Disaster Threaten Humankind's Future in This Century — On Earth and Beyond".  Link found here:  https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/185583.Our_Final_Hour

Description of "Our Final Hour":  "Bolstered by unassailable science and delivered in eloquent style, Our Final Hour's provocative argument that humanity has a mere 50/50 chance of surviving the next century has struck a chord with readers, reviewers, and opinion-makers everywhere. Rees's vision of our immediate future is both a work of stunning scientific originality and a humanistic clarion call on behalf of the future of life."  -goodreads.com

The answer to the question does not matter if life has no meaning. What is so great about humanity that it must be saved? ;)

Hello j:

Oh, we HAVE a meaning.. It just isn't especially lofty.. It's to propagate the species.. Apparently, what's great about it, is ORGASM.
