A few intellectuals amongst scientists and historians are warning of impending doom to all civilization on planet Earth. Climatic change is the main reason, and we humans are partially responsible.
However, it is pointed out, that before the appearance of human life, the extinction of life and changes to the earthâ€™s surface are fact.
Apart from this, our own human growth, the rise and fall of empires and the constant wars for supremacy, speed up the destruction of all life itself, whether animal, insect, or vegetation.
Within the projected life-span of many will be witnessed the fall of the American Empire to be replaced by Oriental powers who will rule into the era of lifeâ€™s demise.
So we lucky few who live in comparative luxury and peace these days should count our lucky stars and enjoy ourselves while we are able.
