      I don’d think we can really predict that. I actually think that if and when humans will go extinct depends largely on us! We are intelligent animals which means we can also be responsible and manipulate the environment in a way that does not harm it, or even help it to recover from the damage we have already made… I really love the earth and hope that we will all become more and more aware of how to better take care of it (for its own sake and our own!).

      However, we are our own worst enemy… if we keep consuming beyond the resources of our planet, we will end up making it a place we can no longer live in… I do think we are much more likely to put our future in danger through not respecting and not protecting our environment. In fact, there are already examples that this is the case, so it is up to all of us to stop it getting any worse…
