My inquiry question for this cycle is “Will human civilization ever come to an end and if so what will be the cause of it?” I chose this topic because I have always wondered about the effects of what we are doing today on future generations, and if we continue going the way we are, will we go extinct?
This is my plan for my research:
In my first round of research I will look at if it is likely that we will go extinct based on patterns since we were first on earth, and different potential causes.
In my next round of research I will focus on the possibility of climate change and the environment being a cause for the extinction of humans.
In this round of research I’ll also look at the patterns of what happened to some animals when they went extinct, and if these same patterns could show us if humans are also going to go extinct.
In my third round of research I will look at how artificial intelligence may one day be the end of humanity.
In this round of research I will also look at any other potential causes that I find for the extinction of humans.
In my next round of research, I will look at human extinction can be prevented, and what we can do as individuals that is within our power.
