Humanity Will Go EXTINCT in 100 years, Prominent Scientist Warns ‘IT’S TOO LATE’
Just before his death in 2010 at the age of 95, Professor Frank Fenner left a chilling warning for future generations, saying the end is on the horizon for humanity.
Dr Fenner became a prominent figure in the scientific community when his work throughout the 21st century led to the eradication of smallpox – a milestone in modern human history.
After helping to wipe out one thing, he then predicted that another will soon disappear – humans.
The Australian scientist believes climate change and overpopulation will be the main catalysts in humans downfall, and he says it could happen by the end of the current century.
Dr Fenner believes that humanity will suffer the same demise as the small group of inhabitants of Easter Island, who over-farmed on the tiny pacific island until they ran out of trees.
Speaking to antipodean news outlet The Australian shortly before his death, Prof Fenner said: “We’re going to become extinct.
“Whatever we do now is too late.”
He added: “We’ll undergo the same fate as the people on Easter Island.
“Climate change is just at the very beginning. But we’re seeing remarkable changes in the weather already.
“The Aborigines showed that without science and the production of carbon dioxide and global warming, they could survive for 40,000 or 50,000 years.
“But the world can’t. The human species is likely to go the same way as many of the species that we’ve seen disappear.
“Homo sapiens will become extinct, perhaps within 100 years. A lot of other animals will, too. It’s an irreversible situation. I think it’s too late.
“I try not to express that because people are trying to do something, but they keep putting it off.
“Mitigation would slow things down a bit, but there are too many people here already.”
