How much time is left on the clock?

The results were staggering: Since 1970, the continental U.S. and Canada have lost more than 1 in 4 birds. The total bird population in the two countries has fallen by almost 3 billion, with grassland birds such as western meadowlarks and American sparrows and shorebirds such as green herons taking the biggest hits...

A sweeping report assessing the state of the natural world found that humans are having an “unprecedented” and devastating effect on global biodiversity, with about 1 million animal and plant species now threatened with extinction.

A summary of the report’s findings was released Monday by the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services, which was established in 2012 by the United Nations Environment Programme and includes representatives from 132 countries.

Not long. We have only been around for 200,000 years and only living in cities for 10,000 years. The earth is 6 billion years old.

I was thinking more along the lines of the future not the past. 13 billion years ago man wasn t around. My father has been alive for 85 years, I don t think it is indicative that he will be alive a further 85 years. With the accelerated degradation of the environment, how much longer do you think human society will be sustainable?

Infinite. Space & time travel, colonisation of the entire universe, cats and dogs living together, mass hysteria.
