The end of the world is nigh, says Bob Geldof as he predicts climate change could wipe out humans in the next two decades
-Geldof, 61 warns of 'mass extinction' and that 'we may not get to 2030'
-Live Aid founder says that his generation has let down today's youth
-He insists the 'next war will not be a WWI or WWII - it will be the end'
“We could have less than 17 years to live - thanks to climate change, Bob Geldof has warned.
The 61-year-old Live Aid founder told young people at a conference in Johannesburg, South Africa, that there will be ‘a mass extinction event’ and admitted his generation had let down today’s youth.
Speaking to delegates from 189 countries, the former Boomtown Rats singer said 'we may not get to 2030' and warned: ‘The next war will not be a World War One or a World War Two - it will be the end.’
Mr Geldof, who was speaking at the One Young World summit, said: ‘The world can decide in a fit of madness to kill itself. Sometimes progress may not be possible. We're in a very fraught time.’
As young people shouted and blew on vuvuzela instruments at the Soccer City stadium, Mr Geldof added that young people must ‘get serious’ about how they can help, reported the Daily Telegraph.”
