Editorial Reviews

Review

Wells has built up a sufficient ''preponderance of evidence'' that requires his final conclusions to be taken seriously. ... The risk of extinction is currently3% per decade ... the risk of a lesser catastrophic event ... is 10% per decade.  ''Unless the population plummets soon, a near-extinction event will likely occur within the lifetime of today's infants.'' The irony again is that since some of us would survive a near-extinction event, the probability for our long-term survival as a species is not all that bad, being roughly 70%. - J. J. Watkins, Mathematical Intelligencer, V.34, pp.71-2
