Millions of years. Not long geologically speaking, but considering just how unadapted we are to survival in a physical sense, it's a bleeding miracle
we've survived this long. We've survived roughly half a dozen ice ages, the floods afterwards, plauges, preditors, etc.
a ELE would kill us out easy thats why its called what its called.
Reread my post. I said the only thing that we are truely vulnerable too, are ELE's.
ya we have shelters but what if the dust didnt settle for 10 years you think we could survive that and ELE's go to comets(no way would we survive a
comet impact), dont be so shure we will survive
Do you know the capabilities of these shelters? I don't. It's completely feasible to build one which is self-sufficient. All I said was that a small
portion has a chance to survive. It also depends on where it hits us. An Ocean impact would be "easier" to survive then one that struck in the
middle of Russia or the Midwest.
The more time we have to perfect our technologies, the chances of us being wiped out by an ELE is reduced. Remember, ELE's don't mean that all life
dies, just the vast majority.
