Good Ol' Stephen Hawking Is Still Trying To Save The Human Race

Yes Stephen Hawking, I agree. Dumb is a death sentence for all. And I know it doesn't have to be, but it really should go without saying that greed and stupidity will suck the life out of all of us. We all know why empires crumble, we all know why Rome fell, and we've already listened to Stephen Hawking warn us about all of this before. Evidently none of it matters. We're well on our way to hell in a hand basket, but in my mind it’s still mildly amusing to listen to the smartest man in the world try to save us all.
“We certainly have not become less greedy or less stupid," Hawking said. "The population has grown by half a billion since our last meeting, with no end in sight. At this rate, it will be 11 billion by 2100.”
Hawking even noted that the massive problem of pollution has only grown in the last five years.
“Air pollution has increased over the past five years," he said. "More than 80 percent of inhabitants of urban areas are exposed to unsafe levels of air pollution.”
