Well, it's hard because there are loads of wars and bad stuff going on. Humans in general kinda destroy the ecosystem but some good things do happen, so we do have a chance but we need to work hard and TOGETHER not individually and stop starting wars.

It's hard to say. I mean, what with all the wars and shit going on because of race, religion, sexuality etc., it's common belief that we're headed in the wrong direction; that our world is shit and no one seems to learn from past mistakes.

However there's always something good happening too; sometimes it's just being hidden beneath all the bad stuff that's happening.

So I guess I believe that we have a chance, but we have to work as hard as we can in order to get there.

all the time i see all this crap where everyone is hating each other, killing, being racist, ect. but then i see people doing noble acts of humanity, like doing nice things to animals, other people, cheering people up, or doing something for the greater good. whenever i see that happening, i get really happy, and i see there is still hope for all of us. even if it is just a little bit, there is hope.

Humanity isn't explained by a group, since everyone's just a human as everyone else. I think there's hope.

We are who we grew up to be after all, it depends on the parents to be good and raise them right >< with every new generation there's a chance to fix things and have humans well, not be shit.

I see, you're right there I think ^^

I guess it depends on a lot of things, but I believe there's a chance too, yes!

Well, you got people who only care about money and fuck up the planet, and you got those who only want to see blood flowing on the streets, and then there's the media guys who want to have everyone else panicking, and then the "normal" people who thinks it's completely fine to bully and/or screw other people over, but you also got the ones that help protect others and find cures for diseases and try to stop the global warming and are very lovely.
But then again, it's easier to break something than to build or fix it, so in that case humans are not that great.

In general? Humans are idiots and untrustworthy. They need to prove themselves as otherwise if they want to be considered as a species with any hope at all for survival. :shrug:
I mean, let us face it, we are bringing ourselves towards our own extinction and not even doing anything about it. The longer we leave the pollution problem and all of those other critical issues, the less likely it is we will survive it all.

Not that the Earth will care, it will just rebuild once we are gone. XP

Well, you can say that now, but do YOU know how to fix it?

I have some ideas, but the tricky part is implementing them. I mean, the economy depends so much on things like fossil fuels that outright replacing them (in this case, with things like hydrogen fuel cells) would cause a bit of a dramatic change in the economy.
We most likely need to ease into it, and the sooner that gets going the better. If we intend to save ourselves from global warming (and it is happening), that is.
Otherwise we may as well just put poison in the water supplies and be done with it.

I think such things are already ongoing as we speak.

Not from what I can tell, since I rarely see any vehicles using anything but fossil fuels. cx
If they want to have a chance of saving the human race, they had better pick up the pace. Otherwise...
Well, the dinosaurs say "hello". XD

list of fully electric cars: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_…

nearly all major auto companies have at least one hybrid gas/electric model, or hybrid versions of existing models (the toyota prius and honda civic hybrid are rather popular)

the major issue with alternative fuels for cars at this point is that the cost of making them (and making them in a way people would want/could use) makes it pretty hard to actually get any on the road. believe me, theyre working on it, but theres not a lot that can go into action at this point. for example the most recent Tesla currently runs about 80k USD. the cheapest new full electric car i could find was 24k USD. and it didnt get popular at all because of the size- which was rather small, to cut the cost down. the cheapest normal-car-sized full electric was 30k USD. and electric cars dont tend to end up on used lots for any cheaper.

humans and human society in general isnt really the problem here- tell anyone how this electric car could get four times their current vehicle's "gas" mileage and theyll want one, regardless of their views on environmental issues or anything. the problem is the big energy companies and in some cases the governments- far, far from the entire human race.
