I think the best explanation was given by the late Douglas Adams. The Earth will be destroyed by alliens for the pourpes of building a hiperspace bypass :surprised :surprised .

And neither will The Simpsons. :cool:

"...And on the pedestal these words appear:
My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings,
Look on my Works ye Mighty, and despair!
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away."

The universe will end at the Coming of the Great Handkerchief.

I guess that the most of the Earth would be a toxic and a radioactive desert. Ocean waters would be much higher than they are today. People would live cramped up in cities. Food and water would be pretty expensive. It would not be much different to live on Mars.

Humans will extinct in a pleasant way. Genetic engineers of the near future can tell you this:
They can fix some genetic sequences of your planned child. Your child would never need glasses, would have healthy teeth, nice hair, strong hearth and blood vessels, higher resistance against UV-rays, X-rays, gamma-rays, higher resistance against mechanical damage and your child can live 1000 years… And it’s safe and cheap. What would you say?

These modifications will lead to some kind of superhuman race.

The world will problably last a few more million years although it may loose it's habitability (if that's a word) within a billion year. Mankind probably has some 100,000 years to go, as the average turn over rate of mammal species is about half a million years.

But then again, Don't worry about the world coming to an end today. It is already tomorrow in Australia.
