      Hi Natsu,
      As per recent studies earth will remain inhabitable for another 300 million years. Long enough!!!!!! Not really!!!!!! In 300 million years or less, earth may become very inhospitable for life to continue to exist on the land, and natural evolution may encourage life to return to the sea where the climate will be a bit more moderate. So what will happen to human race? Will we evolve as sea creatures? It is hard to answer now. Because it is a natural phenomenon. However, scientists are confident that humans will colonize in Solar system and other part of Milky Way galaxy in next 5 to 10 million years. Hopefully we shall get planets suitable for human life or we can artificially make it suitable!!!!! So science will give us enough opportunity to survive as species. 🙂
