Earth 'will become a flaming ball of fire by 2600': Professor Stephen Hawking warns that mankind must make plans to leave the planet to avoid extinction,
Daily Mail, November 6, 2017.

USA Today "Coverage"

Here's what I think really happened: Hawking, being the brilliant mathematician he is, "crunched the global CO2 numbers," and came up with a rough estimate of, "six hundred years," before our Carbon Dioxide feeds-back like Venus, we get a catastrophic greenhouse effect, and we cook.

Hawking figuring out the, "end," is a nice "bookend" for the mathematicians who recently calulated the beginning of RNA on Earth. I figure Hawking calculated the CO2 greenhouse effect driven, "end," of Planet Earth, on the back of an envelope while waiting for the bus. But, no matter how you calculate or present it, there's only one way to play this situation: we are hoisting ourselves by our own petards...

I do dig the lurid sensationalism of the Brit tabloids, how no one cuts more quickly and deeply to a sense of outraged moral indignation than they. They got, "it," sensationalism, down, for good or bad.

No Escape from, or for, Stupid Greed
Ha-Ha Hawking, you make me laugh. We cannot run, we cannot hide, from our own, self-generated evil.
Our inability to balance our greed with good will, our inability to step into the honest ethics necessary to transition and transcend our world's fundamental Law of "Life Eats Itself to Survive," assures our own self-consumption by our own inability to control our own evil desires.

That's something you cannot run and hide from, but must turn to confront.

It's not too late to fix this thing.
