Human extinction - will we survive beyond this century?

Panel discussion involving Professor Judith Howard FRS,Professor Chris Stringer FRS, Jon Turney and chaired by Professor Charles Godfray FRS

Ecologists have suggested that the Earth is experiencing a mass extinction of species, but what about Homo sapiens? The survival of humankind has been challenged throughout history and, despite our ability to adapt to past changes, nothing is guaranteed. Biologist Charles Godfray FRS, chemist Judith Howard FRS,palaeontologist Chris Stringer FRS, and author of The Rough Guide to the Future Jon Turney discuss past and present threats to humanity, the future challenges that we face, and whether we have the capacity to survive.
