Will China become extinct from the world map after 50 years?

The short answer is no.The long answer is that China has endured for thousands of years, which includes multiple invasions (both being invaded and invading its neighbors), at least two civil wars (Waring States period and Nationalism vs Communism), and more economic hardships than any country of comparable size throughout history. China has not been conquered in

Will cars, even electric ones, go extinct one day?

I really doubt it.Why?Convince all your friends that they should be biking to work instead.Observe their reactions.FWIW, I tried to do this. I even lead by example by living without a car for 10 years straight. Total number of converts: 0.

Is there a sixth mass extinction taking place or not?

We are indeed living in the middle of the sixth mass extinction, or the so-called Holocene Extinction Event, which is considered to be from 11,700 years ago to the present. However, although it is often attributed to humans, that's not the whole story. The

Will humanity actually consume all of Earth's forms of energy before humans go extinct (or before human planetary migration)?

No, on a technicality.We might be able to consume all the fossil fuels and mine out all the nuclear fissionable ores but there are always other sources of energy. But there are many MANY non-consumable sources of energy.Geo-thermal is fairly reliable.Hydroelectric power is

What would happen if pandas went extinct?

The following things will happen if an Pandas go extinct...I would die since there's not a adorable animal called PANDA living anymoreChina will become a forest of bamboos since there's not a cute animal called PANDA to eat themEveryody will be miserable and sad since there's not a squishy animal called PANDA to entertain themThere will be no more

What if all plants went extinct?

life itself will phase out.without plants, herbivores will slowly starve to death.carnivores feed on herbivores and might survive longer.scavengers will be the last to go after all others die out.then from the ashes, new species of plants will evolve from surviving microbes.

When will the human race leave earth?

If you mean space colonization, it's simple: when it's cheap enough to.Right now, lifting materials into space is expensive. It takes a lot of fuel, time, and technical expertise to get things into space, and all of that costs money. And while it's cheaper now than it once was, lift cost is

What species would dominate the earth if human became extinct?

This answer is short. The same species that currently dominate the earth.We humans aren't the main coloniser of this planet. We don't even fit in the top 10.This planet has and always will be dominated by bacteria. It's not even close, bacteria species are on and in everything, everywhere.If you're thinking that bacteria don't count

Would human beings become the most dominant species if dinosaurs weren't extinct?

Human beings wouldn't even be here if the dinosaurs weren't extinct, and neither would monkeys or wolves or elephants. Prior to the extinction of the dinosaurs, mammals had already been around for a very long time. In fact, the earliest mammal-like reptiles precede the dinosaurs by quite a long time. The earliest ancestors of

Should I be scared of human extinction?

No. Really not. There isn't any plausible way that humans could go extinct any time soon, unless a comet half the size of the moon slams into our planet. And the odds against that happening in your lifetime are astronomical (literally). :)Disease never wipes out everyone - there are always a few resistant individuals. Nuclear war

What would happen if spiders went extinct?

We would die.Spiders eat mosquitoes.Mosquitoes are the most deadly animals in the entire world and they kill more human beings than any other animal.If the spiders die then the mosquito population would grow significantly and they would murder more people.Eventually, we would simply die.Spiders are extremely important for our survival.

What would happen if all the animals (including humans) except plants went extinct?

A huge number of plants would become extinct too, including all those that are pollinated by insects and birds, carnivorous plants, and those that rely on birds and mammals to spread their seeds. After that there would be a free for all, with nothing being eaten and no animal matter to enrich

What species were close to extinction but human intervention has saved them?

The famed Tasmanian Devil is hopefully on that path.They are almost extinct unfortunately/heading towards rapid extinction.Most of the species last I checked a few months ago, basically had transferable/contagious face cancer. (over 80% of the remaining species)It is transmutable by blood.Wolverines fight a lot and scratch each others faces up, so it spread very rapidly

Which species would be most likely to make humans extinct?

Thanks for the A2A, but as others have said the most likely candidate would be humans themselves. We are apex predators and not in danger of being hunted to extinction. I suppose it's possible that some sort of insect-borne disease or other plague

What would happen to cows if humans went extinct?

The vast majority will die without human care and protection.A few of the most independent breeds might have some chance of survival. Their populations will still crash, but a small number of survivors may become the founder population of a new bovine species.The odds would be against them,

What would happen if hippos went extinct?

Hippos live mainly on grasses, which they eat at night, so really, they do not play a crucial central role in the ecology of the areas in which they live.  If hippos were gone, the grasses would still be eaten.  No real hippo predators, so no carnivores would

Has any species of animal become extinct solely due to human wars?

The Japanese Sea Lion was killed off for multiple reasons Including war. Every part of Its body was used to make simple home supplies like Brushes, Leather, and pipe cleaning supplies. During the Second world war, the last colony was killed of from habitat loss.when the maritime battles of the Second World War destroyed the

How come the human race has not become extinct from skin cancer since there was no sunscreen used up until the last century?

Because the vast majority of human beings alive now and since the beginning of time have dark or dark brown skin, dark or black hair and dark eyes.This is nature's sunscreen, once humans lost their fur chading prey across the savannah dark skin became the de

Could we survive a mass extinction event by going underwater?

Possibly, but in most cases, it would be easier to hide underground than underwater. Underwater is an actively hostile environment, where pressure is inexorably trying to find a way in to get you. And all the resources you need to stay alive and keep your hideout in good repair are harder to come by under water.

How much longer does the human species have until it goes extinct?

Indefinite. We have technology, so everything has changed.There are two ways for a species to perish: be displaced from your ecological niche or the niche vanishes. (As when a lake or forest vanishes, or the entire antarctic froze.)We could only be displaced if we developed something that could. Hostile robots, or

Can we extinct cockroaches?

Why destroy the cockroach, an insect that is said to have existed since pre-historic times and has survived through great challenges and in the worst environments?Instead of killing cockroaches, why don't we learn from them 5 vital lessons that can help

What would the world be like if extinct species were still alive?

Kind of hard to answer.It depends on if we go back to the very beginning and ensure no species ever goes extinct, or if under the current conditions they suddenly popped into existence.Under the first condition, the world would be full of the first organisms, because in order for them

What would happen if all the carnivores went extinct?

The ecosystem on earth will experience a disastrous change and It will be brought back on track soon due to the ability to recover.Because the balance between herbivores and carnivores has been destroyed. Herbivores are fed on the flora and the total amount of flora on our earth

If humans walked the Earth with dinosaurs, how is it possible that humans survived and dinosaurs went extinct?

Imagine when your granddad was a month old, his family home's roof collapsed as a result of some natural calamity, let's say an Earthquake. As a result of that Earthquake, all of his family members died including his parents and a brother who

If humans stopped reproducing, how long would it take for our entire species to go extinct?

We can't ay for sure as we do not know how old the last person alive would be.But to make an estimate, lets say science is right and the first person to live to 200 is already alive.So a child born today could make that age, but not really, as more people die, crafts

If all humans on the Earth died about the same time or became extinct, how long would it take for the Earth to 'get rid' of man made structures, such as houses, cars, paper, etc?

Those things would disappear in reverse order. Most paper would be gone in a few years, most cars would be unrecognizably gone after a few hundred years and houses would recognizably remain (in favorable places e.g. plateaus or buried in sediment) for millennia.Remains that form fossils would remain for billions of years.

If humans went extinct, how long before Hoover Dam would stop working?

When I was in High School, a teacher once told the class that

Can we bring an extinct human species back to life?

Probably not. I don't think we have any intact DNA from any other homonin species. We don't have the technology at this point to reconstruct degraded DNA from long-extinct animals, and we can't be 100% sure we ever will.Then there's the ethical consideration. What would the status of another homonin species be?

What species were close to extinction but human intervention has saved them?

What would have happened if there were no mass extinctions?

Interesting question. Humans are concerned about the here and now. If an asteroid hits the Earth with enough force to cause all life forms to die within the last 500,000,000 years, which has occurred five times, and we are living in the

How long will it take for humans to become extinct after the extinction of bees?

We will not extinct after the extinction of bee.Most of our food don't depends on bee pollination.Cereals pollination is done by the wind.Palm tree pollination is done by the wind.Soybeans are a self-pollinating legume.Tomatoes depends on bees, but not when they are in a greenhouse, and in Europe, more than 50% of the tomatoes are already

Will the human species ever go extinct?

Yes, you are totally on target.Within 100 years, the environment will no longer be amenable to human life, and, what most don't know and far fewer agree, we have ALREADY introduced enough chaos into the biosphere to cause our extinction.There is nothing we will/can

What would happen if flies became extinct?

It's not as hypothetical or silly a question as some of the other answers seem to presume. Humans are close to having sufficient command of genetic technology to erase a species from the Earth. We will do this for species that are sufficiently annoying. Mosquitoes? On

What would happen if domestic cats went extinct?

Aside from disappointed cat lovers, there would be an impact on the local wildlife. It would depend a lot on the country, with continents like Australia and New Zealand benefiting most (cats will also prey on other imported vermin - rabbits for instance - so the impact would not always be beneficial to the fauna).Because

If every single person on Earth suddenly became blind, would the human race go extinct?

Lots of people would die in the initial chaos. Like, probably hundreds of thousands.But we'd adapt.We've got infrastructure that can be adapted to helping blind people navigate.Blind people are pretty badass, well, at least most of the ones I know.You see, you probably have two specific ideas of a blind person: a guy

How fast would humans go extinct if the ENTIRE animal kingdom waged a war against us?

If the animals don't get a human level intelligence to coordinate and plan their strategy, humanity won't go extinct.Humans will win the war, and in the aftermath will re-enslave all the species we need to survive for food, etc.Lots of humans will be killed though, and victory would entail devastating most of earth's ecosystems.The survivors

Will humans become extinct once our sun dies down?

Ivan Radić is spot on: Death of the sun will have no bearing on the survival of the human kind. If at all we are around by that time, we will most definitely have the wherewithal to survive the eventual, predictable death
