Stephen Hawking’s Sell By Date For Humanity

I did not have a clue as to what this topic was all about and googled for it to find this as heading and subheading in the British Newspaper Mail Online.

Stephen Hawking warns humanity has just 200 years to escape Earth and says Donald Trump has taken ‘the most serious, and wrong, decision on climate change this world has seen’

  • Professor Hawking believes life on Earth is at high risk of being wiped out
  • Future generations must forge a new life in space if we want to survive
  • Accused Donald Trump of taking ‘the most serious, and wrong, decision on climate      change this world has seen.  

My  first reaction was that I won’t be around, so why bother about the matter. On further reflection, I thought that my son, daughter in love, friends all known family members and my dog, will not be around either, so, all the more reason why I should not bother.

Nothing that I can come up with to change that perception. My readers with other points of view are most welcome to leave their take in the comments column. I suspect that as a rare instance, Shackman and I will be on different orbits on this subject.

Shackman has suggested this week’s topic. You can see what the other writers of the LBC have to say in their respective blogs.  Maria, Pravin, Ashok and Shackman.
