The Question (ID Number 466)...
...and the response:Significance to whom? I know of no one to whom human extinction is significant except us. It has the same significance to us collectively as death has for you individually--except that your death is inevitable within the this century, whereas human extinction is not; we need not become extinct for thousands of years, perhaps even millions of years--but we will if we continue to live this way. You have no choice in the matter of your own personal extinction. We have a choice when it comes to our collective extinction.
