    Truth: We are no where near as advanced of a species as we think we are.

    We achieved a new record as a species last week: the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere reached 400 parts per million, meaning CO2 levels are now the highest since the evolution of our species. Fail.

    In 1964 a Soviet astronaut called Kardashev developed a scale to judge the power of a civilisation. A type 1 civilisation can harness the power of a star and colonise it's solar system. A type 2 civilisation can harness the power of multiple stars and exotic forms of energy, and colonize a galaxy. A type 3 takes that to the scale of multiple galaxies and is pretty much beyond comprehension.

    By type 2, a species is, in the words of physicist Michio Kaku, "immortal" ie. "cannot be destroyed by anything known to science".

    What are we?























    Below Type 0. We still get most of our energy from burning plants, extinction for us is a possibility within 50-100 years let alone 1000s.

    One of the ways we are failing hardest getting to type 1, is energy. ALOT of people make a lot of money out of burning old bits of plants and shit. Not many people make much money from scientific experiments into renewable energy. The form of energy that it's thought determines whether or not any species in the universe makes it to Type 1 is fusion... And fusion for us is decades away. The first commercial fusion reactor won't be operational until at least after 2050. Most of us will be in our 50's, that gives us a good 40 years worth of continually rising CO2, continually falling fossil fuel reserves and continually rising energy demands. .

    So I just thought we could all take a moment to consider the fact that fusion power, the key to turning humanity into an interplantetary civilisation, if not the survival of the species beyond the next 100 years, is relying on just $15 billion of funding.

    The combined personal wealth of the 10 richest men in the world is $5.4 trillion.

    Goodnight sweet humanity.

    Good points, how can humanity evolve as a species when the things most of us strive towards are fame and fortune. However I wouldn't want to be born in any other time or place. I am only 20 and I still have so much left in my life to do. I hope by the time I reach my late 30's I can still say that I am happy with my experiences.

    Of course we are not an advanced civilization. There are lots of factors aside the energy that verify your point, like for example the birth rate. If the human population keeps increasing, our conditions of life might be untenable.

    No shit: Pointing out the obvious for the sake of making a thread and sounding intelligent.

    You fail to grasp the intent of my first post it seems.

    I merely stated you are pointing out the obvious. The most likely reason is to sound intelligent.

    You got butt hurt about it, and I simply replied with the Mercury.

    We are actually more advanced then it seems. Authorities are just not revealing all the scientific advances they have because it is not profitable to do so.
