The planet is set to expire in the year 2050 due to the over-consumption of natural resources, with the United States being the worst offender, according to a report expected to be released Tuesday.


That's World Wildlife Fund, not to be confused with the previous name of Vince McMahon's wrestling federation...

It was bound to happen anyway. When I was in High School, my Geography teacher told us that the world only has about 50 years of petroleum oil left. So after a while everyone will get into a war over oil and other things and blow up the world anyway.

Overpopulation is the the worst problem, more important and relevant than over consumption. The trick is to get irresponsable people to reproduce less.

They have a point regarding the overconsumption of our natural resources, but I seriously doubt that the world will explode on Jan. 1, 2050. I think they're just trying to scare us into action. Perhaps scare tactics are necessary at this point, though.
You're right about overpopulation, though. I honestly believe that there should be a qualifying exam for parenthood, but there's little chance of that. Freedom is a wonderful thing, but in many ways, it's inherently self-destructive.
Humanity has evolved beyond Nature, and we're no longer part of the natural order of things. While lately we've been trying to alter our attitude towards the environment, and are starting to realize the error of our ways, our rate of expansion and consumption are not natural, and Nature has ways of balancing out the population (remember the Black Death of the 14th century? Imagine such a disease now, with our population density at the level it is today.)

Sorry about the rant, but I think about this topic rather a lot. All of this is, of course, my ramblings, and shouldn't be taken too seriously. Anyway, the world's supposed to end in December of 2016, when the Aztec calendar runs out. Eveybody knows that...

LOL got a point there...but still...LOOK ON THE BRIGHT SIDE EVERYONE!

1)Before we totally run out, people will seek cleaner and better forms of fuel!

2)Electric, water, wind and Solar power will be used more!

3)People will learn to conserve better!

All ways look on the bright side of light [whistles]

AIDS? It has all the right tools to play the role of a new-age plague. It's just very, very.......slow about it.

Not really, if you think about it, AIDS isn't very contagious, only by sex contact and blood... and it can be prevented with some care.
