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.

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.
