15. I read an article, a while back

That predicted that, at the rate we're going, by 2050 we will have killed off all life in the oceans. The domino effect of it was said to be the complete collapse of the entire food chain. Of course, as history indicates, we won't continue at the same rate. We'll accelerate the damage we're doing, in the name of the almighty dollar.

I remember, when in high school,late 70s, being told that, at the rate we were going then, by the year 2100 we'd begin to see the type of climate change we're seeing now, in '16.

I think your assessment that "we'll be lucky to have another generation after the Z generation", is probably dead on.
