Facing disaster

The recent paper in the link above is even more pessimistic than the one by Prof. Bendell (below) that was downloaded over a million times. The estimations of human extinction in page 7 and especially section 2.2 entitled The democratization of science and technology, that addresses scenarios for technologic terrorism-related events.   
"The purpose of this conceptual paper is to provide readers with an opportunity to reassess their work and life in the face of an inevitable near term social collapse due to climate change." http://insight.cumbria.ac.uk/id/eprint/4166/1/Bendell_DeepAdaptation.pdf

The author of the paper, Prof. Bendell, was one of the speakers in the European Commission event in May of this year, where participants have explored the biggest threats to Humanity and provided possible recommendations for action and behaviour.

PS - This is the first post of this blog. It is not pessimistic just realistic.
