Its only going to get worse.
This may sound out there, but I really think that sooner or later the planet will do something to either get rid of us or at least lower our numbers to the point that we stop destroying the planet. Look at the population explosion the last 100 years. In 1900, there was roughly 1 billion people on the planet. By 2000, there was 6 billion and by 2012 or so, there's expected to be 7 billion. We obviously can't keep going at this pace.
It's only a matter of time until the human Ebola virus mutates into an airborne variant and when it does we'll all be gone before you know it.
So ... no worries mate
That'll help me sleep tonight, thanks for that!
Actually, the Avian flu is probably more likely to hit us first. It could be just a mutation or two away from being transmitable between humans. 50% of those infected so far have died.
