Is Planet Earth Running Out Of Time

Lastly updated

We're going to a place nobody has been to before. As our planet earth is running out of time, the idea of ​​going boldly to a place where we've never been to is making more sense day by day. Getting the human race to Mars or other planets turns out to be fragile and very complex yet concieveable possibility. The emission of harmful gases into the atmosphere by big tech and the negligence of most countries to promote the use of sustainable energy has possed a great threat to planet earth and risked a climate change disaster.

It takes more than the enthusiasm and courage of uncontrolled technology to physically push the human species into space. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) first announced ambitious plans to send people to the Red Planet in the 1930s. Ever since then the climate change disasters that threatens human life on planet earth has so increased.

The push to explore into space

The famous British physicist Stephen Hawking is not the only scientist who pushed the space agency to explore and go further.Hawking's reason for the push was based on his growing concern that there are only about 600 human years left on planet Earth, or about the time between the Renaissance and modern times. In 2617, a growing world population will use enough energy to make the world a "fireball," a quote attributed to Hawking by the British newspaper Metro.

In the daily frenzy of the "crisis" of today's humanity, we forget the many generations that we expect to arrive. Not those who will live in 200 years, but in 1,000 or 10,000 years. I use the word "expect" because we face existential risks that threaten to eradicate humanity. These risks refer not only to major disasters, but also to disasters that can end history.

The future is not perfect

However, this risk remains undervalued. The damage done to Planet earth by climate chage disasters increasingly seems fatal and renders it helpless. Doomsday has been spoken for thousands of years, but only a few people, companies and countries are trying to avoid it. People are also bad at handling problems that have not yet occurred (partly due to the availability of heuristics: the tendency to overestimate the possibility of events, the examples we know and events that we do not obey easily).

The fact that something is possible and potentially dangerous does not mean that it is worth worrying about. There are some risks we cannot take or afford to change, such as gamma-ray bursts caused by galactic explosions. But if we learn that we can do something, priorities can change. For example, cleaning, outbreak vaccines and antibiotics range from the good actions taken to fix poor public health.

Here are some serious threats to Planet earth through climate chage:

Nuclear wars

While so far only two nuclear weapons have been used in wars, in Hiroshima and Nagasaki in World War II, and nuclear supplies have risen to their peaks from the Cold War era, it is a mistake to believe that a nuclear war is impossible. In fact, it is impossible given the increasing threats to world stability and peace by world powers trying to build world dorminance through competitions.

Biotechnology pandemic

Natural pandemics killed more people than war. However, a natural pandemic is unlikely to represent an existential threat: there are usually some people who are resistant to pathogens and the survivors of pandemics will be more resistant. Evolution is also not compatible with parasites that may harm its host, which turned syphilis an evil assassin into a chronic disease that spread throughout Europe.

Super intelligence

The is very strong tool. The small increase in problem solving skills and group coordination is the reason we leave the other issues in the dust. Now Planet earth's survival depends on human decisions, not on what they do. Being smart is a real benefit for people and organizations. Therefore, much effort is needed to improve our individual and collective intelligence, from cognitive improvement medications to artificial intelligence software.


Nanotechnology is the control of matter with the precision of atoms or molecules. This is not dangerous in itself; on the contrary, it will be great news for most applications. The problem is that increasing power and biotechnology increase the potential for violations that are difficult to maintain.

Nanotechnology turns to require an intelligent design for its purpose. It is however very difficult to imitate a biological system: biology is much better by default. Maybe one day a fool will succeed, but the destructive technology trees still contains many low quality fruits today.

The Unknown

The most worrying possibility is that there is something very deadly out there, and we don't realize it. From post cold war and its deadly nuclear attacks, most countries have been on the low developing new technologies and wapons of mass destruction that if someday used may pose very catastrofic damage to the climate chage programs.

Bottom Line

To ensure Planet earth is sustainable and preserved fro the future generations, it is vital for big tech companies and governments to develop programs that will essentially promote the use of sustainable enery.
