It is well-known that eventually the Sun will expand and engulf the Earth, eliminating all life on it. Humanity is the best hope of creating the technology to ensure continued existence of the rare life on Earth far into the future.

Pros
Cons
  • Even much before the sun, we can have a mass or even a complete extinction from meteors, volcanoes, viruses, or even future human-like animal forms - only mankind's technology and organization abilities can prevent any of this.

  • Humans have caused a number of gravely more pressing survival issues for the whole planet that will affect us far sooner than an expanding sun.
