    So I've been reading a lot on the end of the world.
    Peak Oil. A world-wide draught. Now this comes along ...
    "Could we really run out of food?"

    So with the terrorism and other things happening in the world, like the current oil war in Iraq. Then coupled with that, you have some scientists saying that our or lack of technology could wipe us out.
    And I'm not talking about terminator style robots, but maybe a man-made virus that we can't cure. Or something we make to fix another problem, but that just makes something else worse.
    Like biofuels, everything will be powered by corn. Oh wait, now we don't have corn to eat and we'll starve? Great.

    This doesn't even get into things like climate change.

    Here's another article with some food for thought

    And here's another

    My best guess, is that it will be a combination of several small things and something we didn't see coming.

    My bet is that an asteroid will do us in before we can do ourselves in.

    I would include the demise of the most intelligent individuals (which procreate far less than those of less intelligence). A sort of devolutionary process reverting men and women back into the mindset of the stone ages while having a technological arsenal at their disposal.

    Depress yourself by reading this novel of a believable, not-too-distant future dystopia, written by one of the leading voices of the Peak Oilers:

    Cub fans versus Reds fans. You are either with us or against us...
