With 7.2 billion humans I doubt we'll die out completely unless we're faced with an absolutely global and catastrophic event of some kind that reaches all corners of the globe - heck, even then, we're a pretty resilient species and may find some way to persist through such a thing. I also personally don't buy the 'branching out into space' as the only thing that will save humanity on this planet - a kind of thinking that seems to imply that we don't have any other options. Taking our, IMO, militaristic and tribal mentality into space will just start the same problems on new planets with no new mindset to confront them and then we'll be writing these same threads about the same things, on the version of ATS we have on Mars or the moon or wherever we pretend we can go and start a new garden of Eden - sure, it would help ease the burden I believe, for a little while, but our root problems would still be present and lead to the same outcomes IMO.
