Are We Heading Toward Extinction?
The following has been excerpted from the long-form essay Facing Extinction.
For much of my life, I thought our species would soon go extinct. I assumed we might last another hundred years if we were lucky. Now I suspect we are facing extinction in the near future. Can I speculate as to exactly when that might happen? Of course not. My sense of this is based only on probability.
On hope and agency
Hope is when you are hoping for something.
Agency is when you are in a position to influence whether or not it happens.
Hope can reinforce agency, assuming you have some to start with.
