Loss of habitat for human animals on Earth is rapidly approaching. Shortly after habitat for humans is gone, our species will go extinct. The likely route by which near-term human extinction will occur is presented here, taking into account abrupt, irreversible climate change, the ongoing Mass Extinction Event, and the consequences of COVID-19.
