1. Ecological collapse:Humans have wiped out 60% of all mammals, birds, fish and reptiles since 1970 and leading scientists now consider human extinction possible. Mr Cribb says ecological collapse threatens humans as gravely as it does our wild animals.2. Resource scarcity:In an average lifetime Mr Cribb says human will use 99, 720 tonnes of freshwater, consume 720 tonnes of metal and materials, cause the release of 288 tonnes of CO2 and waste 13.4 tonnes of food. Mr Cribb adds humans will inadvertently help destroy 800 sqm of forest and cause the release of 320 kgs of toxic chemicals in their lifetime.
3. New arms race:
Mr Cribb says nuclear risk is the highest it has ever been and there are currently eight nations equipped to terminate civilisations with nuclear weapons.
4. Climate Change:
Mr Cribb predicts an increase in atmospheric temperature of 3-5 degrees by 2100 and a 2 degree increase by 2050. Mr Cribb believes far more frightening than carbon emissions is methane, with 5 trillion tonnes of methane locked up in seabeds and peat swamps. Mr Cribb says it will start to vent as the earth warms.
"Methane is 80 times more powerful than cardon dioxide," he says. "There is nothing humans can do to stop it but we must prevent it from happening in the first place by cooling the planet."
5. Global Poisoning:
Mr Cribb says human chemical effusion amounts to 250 billion tonnes of chemicals emitted by industrial and production activities.
"We are basically poisoning the whole planet and every single individual," he says.
6. Food system failure:
Global food demand is set to double by 2060 as scientists predict human population growth of more than 130,000 per day.
7. Pandemic diseases:
Mr Cribb says planet Earth has had seven pandemics so far this Century and we will see more unless we work out a way to prevent rather than treat.
8. Uncontrollable technologies:
Mr Cribb believes new technologies keep pouring out of laboratories uncontrolled into the wider population. He believes society needs an ethical system to be able to control artificial intelligence, universal surveillance and nuclear drones in order to assure a secure future.
Mr Cribb says the ageing population in wealthy counties is draining the earth resources and an average Australian will consume 35,000 more meals in their longer lifetime than a person in West Africa.
10. False Beliefs:
Mr Cribb says human beliefs and delusions are endangering our populations and money is a major factor in the destruction of the planet.
"Money is a figment of the human imagination and it does not exist in the real world," he says.
"Because of that it (money) is infinite, we have an infinite amount of money on a finite planet. Guess which one we are going to run out of first?"
