About this book

What is the future of humanity? Will we survive this century and, if we do, how "well" will we survive into the next millennium? What issues will continue to confront humanity? Will we become extinct (like most species) or continue to evolve? What science-based strategies could be adopted to increase humanity's chances for surviving into the near future and beyond? This text addresses these questions, looking at what has been forseen by serious future-gazers and scientists for the prospects of the human and post-human lineage, looking at this century and the distant future. It attempts to take a positive look at humanity's global collective future.
