The end of the world as we know it: are we on the brink of a mass extinction?

Is Extinction Rebellion correct? Will climate change wipe us out?

17.10.2019

Explainer | An alarming claim has been made about the future of our Earth in recent months: that, at best, we're facing the collapse of civilisation or, at worst, a mass extinction. And are they right?

Is Extinction Rebellion correct? Will climate change wipe us out?

This is what Ms Thunberg refers to when she warns of the sixth mass extinction.

This small rodent lived only on a low-lying island off the coast of Queensland; scientists believe rising sea levels and storm surges caused by climate change either deprived it of its food or literally swept it away to its doom.

“No. People will find refuge,” says Professor Steven Sherwood, deputy director of the University of NSW’s Climate Change Research Centre.

They will run out of water, starve or die in more frequent cyclones, floods, wildfires and storm surges.

(this may be counterbalanced with increases in farming productivity). What crops do grow would become less nutritious. The number of fish available in key fisheries could fall by up to 50 per cent.

Available drinking water in already parched North Africa and the Middle East could fall by more than 45 per cent, the World Bank predicts.

Low-lying Pacific nations such as Kiribati are especially vulnerable to climate change.

We don’t know. Our existing models are less accurate for that time span.

We know such loops exist, but scientists do not yet know how hot the Earth needs to get before they activate.

Some scientists fear these feedback loops might lead us to "hothouse Earth", an apocalyptic scenario when our planet becomes too warm to support any life, although there is not a lot of evidence to support that fear.
