Scientists and researchers all agree that the human life on Earth could end sometime soon. They already conducted studies and research that can backup their claim that the world we are living in right now is already aging and if we don’t act to preserve it, apocalypse might just come down earlier than expected.
Extreme climate change
“Should an impact occur the main destruction will not be from the initial impact, but from the clouds of dust projected into the upper atmosphere,” the study warns.
“The damage from such an “impact winter” could affect the climate, damage the biosphere, affect food supplies, and create political instability.”
If we don’t conserve the eco-system, life will end sooner than expected. “Species extinction is now far faster than the historic rate,” the study warns. According to the group, the humanity must learn to preserve the eco-system or develop sustainable economies in order to survive this catastrophe.
Global system catastrophe
The possibility of someone who is really sick and mad about life that will intentionally build an “engineered pathogen” to wipe out the human race is at high.
“It could lead to the easy construction of large arsenals of conventional or more novel weapons made possible by atomically precise manufacturing,”
“Of particular relevance is whether nanotechnology allows the construction of nuclear bombs.” Imagine the terrorists using it.
There will be a time when we humans can be controlled by computers and robots. According to their findings, “extreme” artificial intelligence “could not be easily controlled”. To make it worse, it would “probably act to boost their own intelligence and acquire maximal resources”.
Bad global governance
Bad governance = chaos. The disaster and global problems will follow.
There are also some sort of unknown risks and their probabilities. The study still calls for “extensive research” to identify these “unknown unknowns” that could bring a great destruction of the world.
These findings are not meant to scare people. According to the group of people involved in this research:
“[This research] is about how a better understanding of the magnitude of the challenges can help the world to address the risks it faces, and can help to create a path towards more sustainable development,” the study’s authors said.For you, what is the most terrifying way that could end the world?
“It is a scientific assessment about the possibility of oblivion, certainly, but even more it is a call for action based on the assumption that humanity is able to rise to challenges and turn them into opportunities.”
