Stephen Hawking has a solution for curing the state of the environment: chuck it all and move to space.
The astrophysicist says that with the way humans are currently treating the environment, the best hope for human survival i-- in the next 100 years -- is space exploration and colonization.
Stephen says that there are only so many resources on earth, and with our constant population expansion and environmental changes, space really is the next frontier if we want to live at the same level.
"Our genetic code still carries the selfish and aggressive instincts that were of survival advantage in the past. It will be difficult enough to avoid disaster in the next hundred years, let alone the next thousand or million," he said. "Our only chance of long-term survival is not to remain lurking on planet Earth, but to spread out into space."
No word yet on whether recycling is pointless, or what planets we should be eyeing. But, we're sure he'll cover it all in his new five-part television series, "Brave New World" on Discovery HD.
In the meantime, we're going to start saving for a phat condo on Mars.
