    Human Extinction Essay

    Mass Extinction of the Human Species The future is not guaranteed for individuals, and the same is true for all of humanity. Of the millions of species that exist on this planet humans are known as the most intelligent, but maybe this is a misconception. While mankind carries on its activities, the chance of a mass extinction grows with every misuse of the earth. It is more likely that humans will cause their own extinction than it is that they would be wiped out by a natural catastrophe. Humans are also known as a violent species so it is not unreasonable for one to analyze the threat of a mass extinction due to a nuclear war. Humanity is looking into biological warfare as well, and it would be foolish to ignore the risks and the…

    I disagree with Lee Clarke 's statement because catastrophes are life changing events that affect everyone in certain ways, therefore, they should not be looked at as something normal because they don 't happen often. For some, it marks a day that their life has been changed forever, therefore, they should be seen as special. Catastrophes are events that humans try to overcome themselves. In Oedipus rex, the previous king…

    over centuries, have developed symbiotic relationships with each other as a way of survival. In other words, this “Circle of Life” has been established and for centuries has been effective enough to sustain Earth’s species.
