I'm afraid I'm a skeptic, if for no other reason than corporate CEO types are like cockroaches and will survive wars, pestilence, and find more extractive resources to exploit, even without a market...

That's just human chauvanism talking. We're no different from any other animal that faces extinction.

James,
I think it's unfortunate that you are so pessimistic. We certainly have some reason to be pessimistic since we'll all be worm food someday, but other than that- the world and life and even the human race is interesting and miraculous.

Here's some fun & games for all you pessimists out there. After playing this game for a hour or too go read about coronaviruses and it will put the fear mongering in perspective...
Objectives
The objectives of Pandemic 2 are simple. Evolve your disease intelligently, Spread your disease to everyone, Kill everyone. You are going to want governments as relaxed as possible, to avoid causing a panic. So make sure to keep the visibility of your virus as low as possible. Even if visibility is low, governments are still going to panic if people suddenly start dying everywhere. Pay attention to the news headlines, it can give you insight on developing situations around the world.
