Preparing for Extinction

The odds of life on earth going extinct in the near future are almost certain. Why?

To stop the madman Trump would require drastic action, e.g. impeachment, assassination or insurrection. However, nobody takes Trump as a threat seriously enough to warrant such action. They prefer to indulge in wishful thinking. I can’t see how the world could survive the Trump presidency without mass extinction. We are a terminally stupid, optimistic species.

Imagine if an asteroid were headed for earth with even a 10% chance of colliding. We would not just ignore it. Trump has far larger than 10% odds of wiping out the planet. We are suicidal to ignore the danger.
