Physicists Say There’s a 90 Percent Chance Civilization Will Soon Collapse

 — 28 juillet 2020
According to research published in the journal Scientific Reports, if humanity continues down its current path, civilization as we know it is heading toward “irreversible collapse” in a matter of decades.

The paper, penned by physicists from the Alan Turing Institute and the University of Tarapacá, predicts that deforestation will claim the last forests on Earth in between 100 and 200 years. Coupled with global population changes and resource consumption, that’s bad new for humanity.

“Clearly it is unrealistic to imagine that the human society would start to be affected by the deforestation only when the last tree would be cut down,” reads the paper.

In light of that, the duo predicts that society as we know it could end within 20 to 40 years.
