Human extinction is the hypothetical end of the human species. Various scenarios have been discussed in science, popular culture, and religion (see End time). The breadth of this article is on existential risks.
Humans are very widespread on the Earth, and live in communities which (whilst interconnected) are capable of some kind of basic survival in isolation. Therefore, pandemic and deliberate killing aside, to achieve human extinction, the entire planet would have to be rendered uninhabitable. This would typically be during a mass extinction event, a precedent of which exists in the PermianTriassic extinction event among other examples.
In the near future, one anthropogenic extinction scenario exists: global nuclear annihilation; and three possible natural ones: bolide impact, catastrophic climate change and large-scale volcanism. Both natural causes have occurred repeatedly in the geologic past and there is no reason to consider them unlikely in the future. As technology develops ...more

The Irony being that if a new species did evolve (and kill all humans) this may be the best hope for anyone who believes in immortality through our genes. It would at least mean some traces of humanity would continue, where as most other (human caused) scenarios could wipe out human genetics completely.

Sure most of this is Alarmist type stuff, but remember, even the United Nations themselves has been saying for many years that the biggest threat to continued human existence is ourselves. In the 1990s they placed nuclear threat as the number one concern, human overpopulation as the second concern. Warning that our population of over 6.7 Billion people is already causing world problems, and that a more sustainable level would be 5 Billion people.



According to previous extinction patterns humans have a few million more years on the planet, if we do not manage to destroy it or ourselves first. Unfortunately we have been responsible for the extinction of thousands (if not millio ...more
