RE: Everyone must be....


Ah, probably not 50 years. Humans will expand and use our ingenuity to
survive until nothing exists on this planet except us, yeast and a few
other useful microbes, and maybe cockroaches. Every speck of land will
have a building on it, the seas will be roofed over with desalinization
machines, and we'll have launched giant umbrellas to block the sun
because the earth is so hot from our waste heat we are in danger of
broiling alive. Maybe the critters a couple miles undersea that survive
on the sulfur from volcanic vents will still be around. That might be
100 years or so.
BTW I don't have descendents either.

Because I don't have to fool w/ it.  The way the world is headed, it'll
likely be uninhabitable in another 50 years anyway so it's just as well.
I
get discouraged fighting the good fight w/ apathy all around me.
