Humans going to be extinct in 100 yrs ?

I don't think so, this soon possible unless we are struck with Natural disaster. This claim was made by an Australian scientist named Frank Fenner.

He was the one who helped in eradicating smallpox around the world.

Professor Frank Fenner, emeritus professor of microbiology at the Australian National University, has claimed that the human race will be unable to survive a population explosion and “unbridled consumption”.

“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,” Prof. Fenner said.

He said that since humans have entered an unofficial scientific period known as the Anthropocene — the time since industrialisation — we have had an effect on the planet that rivals any ice age or comet impact, the Daily Mail reported.

Prof. Fenner also blames the onset of climate change.

“We’ll undergo the same fate as the people on Easter Island... 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,” he said.

Prof. Fenner’s, 95, work in helping eradicate smallpox is regarded as one of the WHO’s greatest achievements

However, Prof. Stephen Boyden, a colleague of Prof Fenner, said that while there was deep pessimism among some ecologists, others had a more optimistic view.

“Frank may well be right, but some of us still harbour the hope that there will come about an awareness and, as a result the changes necessary to achieve ecological sustainability,” Prof. Boyden said.
