    I fear that the unintended consequences from self-aware AI may be far more impactful at that point

    Assuming there is still chocolate, at 88, eat all the chocolate you want.

    Anyone remember the Reggie Bar in the '70s? It was a "chocolaty" bar......crap made by Monsanto, with zero chocolate in it.

    Tasted great!

    We'll survive. Better living through chemistry, right??

    Even more important is the loss of the fly species that pollinate them. That could happen even earlier.

    I'd say stock up on bananas and coffee put they probably won't keep very well. Gruel will be very popular in the future.

    Hell, we'll probably have a million or more genetically engineered humans on our planet by 2050 .. maybe 100 million.

    Once upon a time, AT&T predicted the collapse of bandwidth...
    Hydroponic cacao farming? You can do most anything in a warehouse if you want to. Decades ago, someone declared that blond hair and blue eyes were doomed. Oddly, blue eyes are the product of one mutation, as best I understand, and any two people with blue eyes are related. As long as there is bleach and there are contact lenses, I'm not too concerned.

    I reckon scientists are more likely to go extinct than chocolate.
