Human Extinction Mechanisms
While there are many ways humans could become extinct, the vast majority of those are either extremely unlikely and/or beyond our control. For example, a massive asteroid impact may trigger mass starvation but some people will survive thanks to technology. There's nothing we can do if a black hole comes our way (and it's extremely unlikely anyway).
The probability of human extinction in the current generation due to natural causes is practically zero.
Thus, the focus is on emerging manmade technologies which will clearly present a human extinction threat, namely:
