Scientists State There Are Three Ways The World Could End

End of World

Some experts say that there are three ends of the world theories. Climate change, Pandemic or the nuclear war that could wipe out our planet.

You might have seen a lot of Hollywood movies about the end of the world that gives fears to all of us. Today, experts have informed us that what was thought to happen in movies could actually happen in real life.

Scientist claims that the 3 biggest risks for our race are pandemics, climate change and a nuclear war. World leaders should act as one to restrict each of the three.

This warning came in from a report that was made by the experts at the Oxford University.
The writer of the research asked the international community to take the concern seriously and understand the importance of our species in the future and our obligation to make sure that these threats are restricted to the least.
Existential risk, diplomacy, and governance
The said research is titled Existential risk, diplomacy, and governance. The Future of Humanity Institute or FHI which belongs to the Faculty of Philosophy at Oxford University carried this out.
The Oxford University researchers teamed up with the scientist from different fields to arise with a number of important steps that could lower the existential possibilities.

The experts were able to deduce that government around the world must invest more efforts in devising a plan for severe and uncommon diseases such as Zika and Ebola.

Caution was given by the experts that the new developing diseases are one of the biggest threats to our life since they hold unknown pathogens and there are no shots available to counter it
Sebastian Farquhar who is the lead author of the research tells that after the crisis with Ebola and Zika, controlling the pandemics is now a worldwide responsibility. Excessive planning is still national and insufficient attention is paid to worst-case scenarios like the risks from those intentionally engineered pathogens.

In addition to the number of possible diseases, experts also recommended the need to focus on the limitation and labeling of bioweapons which became one of the biggest threat in the 21st century.
Piers Millett, a biosecurity expert from future of Humanity Institute said that a recent survey of the views of national technical experts on bioweapons displayed an urgent need for extensive and more sustained international focus.

Nonetheless, bio weapons are still not as dangerous as nuclear bombs that can destroy cities or even countries in just seconds, making it the most feared weapon in our history.

The author of the research asked the international community that we have to identify the importance of us species' future and lower the threats.
