Hakwing gives up on global warming
In a recent lecture british astrophysicist and general super guru Stephen Hakwing seems to have given up hope that we can clean up the mess that we have created. To quote the professor "It is important for the human race to spread out into space for the survival of the species," Hawking said. "Life on Earth is at the ever-increasing risk of being wiped out by a disaster, such as sudden global warming, nuclear war, a genetically engineered virus or other dangers we have not yet thought of."
It's interesting to note that his opinions on why we need to spread out of the earth are all based on threats we create ourselves. I dont see meteorites scaring Hawkings! He should know being an astrophysicist.
So its official, the reason for our extinction is more likely to be something we do rather than getting hit by comets :)
