"In the next 1,000 years the world will not end, but you, I, everyone and every thing we know will be gone and all but forgotten. Only data and a few artifacts will survive. Worldwide, pollution will get worse before it gets better. A large-scale biotechnology industrial accident will cause widespread fear and minor damage. Nuclear terrorists will strike a major soft target, killing thousands. A medium-sized meteorite will kill thousands. Wars will decrease in duration and frequency, but increase in intensity."
