The Last Century For Humans? True Story or Scare Tactic?

This is the big eco question of the day: Are we living in the last century of our civilization? Nothing will let us save ourselves from ourselves and our society is heading towards collapse?

According to many of the world's top scientists and ABC, the answer is yes.

This fall ABC News will premiere a dramatic two-hour broadcast called Earth 2100, asking scientists from around the globe to join together in a countdown to the year 2100 to tell us what we must do to survive the next century as well as what will happen if we don't.

President of the Pacific Institute says "The 21st century is going to be the century which determine[s] whether we live or die as a sustainable species. As populations grow, as our use of resources grows, I think we get closer and closer to that edge."

To build the show Earth 2100 ABC is asking viewers to use their imagination to create short videos about what it would be like to live through the next century if we stay on our current path.

Could it be possible that we're in the last century of the human race — or is this just a scare tactic to promote their show?
