Human race 'will be extinct 'within 100 years due to population explosion' | Mail OnlineAs the scientist who helped eradicate smallpox he certainly know a thing or two about extinction.
And now Professor Frank Fenner, emeritus professor of microbiology at the Australian National University, has predicted that the human race will be extinct within the next 100 years.
This is all very interesting, but I find it highly unlikely that the human race could possibly become extinct within such a short time frame-- especially if the supposed causes of this extinction event are global warming and overpopulation. A catastrophic depopulation, certainly, but nothing that would threaten the existence of the entire species.
