A bigger threat than global warming?
Wouldn’t humans, because we are an advanced species, have a better chance of survival because we are intelligent, do not have a specialized niche, are omnivorous and have adapted our behavior to survive in every climate the earth offers? Granted we wouldn’t survive in great numbers but we would survive. Remember we used to have a mine shaft gap, but we don’t anymore!
See, here's how it works. In an event that causes the extinction of all life on the planet, the larger countries lose more people. The smaller countries lose fewer people. See?
The biggest threat to advanced life forms in the universe is probably rogue political parties like the demokkkrats.
We could use a good planet-killing asteroid right about now. Screw this world.
