      Not entirely, but I think it is quite likely that in my lifetime there will be a big drop in the number of people, because of global warming – unless we do much more right now to prevent this.

      It depends. If a big meteor like the one that killed the dinosaurs hit us at the moment, I think we’d probably die out. However, if we managed to develop better technology for spotting these and better space technology we may be able to avoid it.

      Eventually when the sun starts to die it will likely expand to engulf the earth with fire. This will kill anything left on Earth. Although who knows, maybe we will have gone somewhere else by then…?

      I’m a christian so I believe that God will draw the universe to a close at some point in the future. However, part of that is he plans to remake it in a better way and his plans still involve humans. So I think even if we do go extinct we will live again in a remade universe…
