There are two ways to avoid or delay extinction:

  • Space Colonization - getting the human species off the planet into self-sufficient space colonies so that no matter what happens to Earth's biosphere, the species will survive; and/or

  • Regulations and laws - creating new laws and regulations to try to prevent a disasterous accident.

Knowing human nature, regulations could only delay the inevitable. Somewhere, a selfish profit-seeking laboratory, or an accident within regulations, or a deranged offensive individual or state will create a supervirus.

Notably, space colonization also offers laboratories beyond Earth's biosphere and extra safety measures, e.g., if a laboratory has an accident, a leaked virus would be unlikely to pass thru space intact, and a nuclear detonation could sterilize the lab.

These topics are meant to be discussed in the links above and in the public forums.    SiteMap > Solutions
