>Humans will be extinct in 100 years says eminent scientist
>Fenner said that climate change is only at its beginning, but is likely to be the cause of our extinction. “We’ll undergo the same fate as the people on Easter Island,” he said. More people means fewer resources, and Fenner predicts “there will be a lot more wars over food.”
>Easter Island is famous for its massive stone statues. Polynesian people settled there, in what was then a pristine tropical island, around the middle of the first millennium AD. The population grew slowly at first and then exploded. As the population grew the forests were wiped out and all the tree animals became extinct, both with devastating consequences. After about 1600 the civilization began to collapse, and had virtually disappeared by the mid-19th century. Evolutionary biologist Jared Diamond said the parallels between what happened on Easter Island and what is occurring today on the planet as a whole are “chillingly obvious.”
What does /sci/ think? How fucked is humanity?
Only complete fucking cucks are stupid enough to be tricked into studying pure Physics.

>All figures were taken verbatim from this AIP publication:
Why don't you retards do your own research before committing to such a stupid degree choice?
In the last ten years employment has dropped 10% down to 35%.
>ONE YEAR AFTER GRADUATION ONLY 35% OF PHYSICS GRADUATES WERE EMPLOYED
Those doing graduate studies, only 35% continue to study physics while 25% study other fields and 5% are completely unemployed.
From pic related only 10% (only 3.5% of all graduates) find work in national labs, 11% teach high-school. 53% work in the private sector.
>MORE PHYSICS GRADUATES TEACH HIGH-SCHOOL THAN THOSE WHO FIND WORK AT LABS
>Fields of employment
26% non-STEM and 21% work in IT
>47% OF EMPLOYED PHYSICS GRADUATES DO NOT WORK IN SCIENCE OR ENGINEERING
32% of those employed (only 11.2% of graduates) claim to work in engineering. As you can see from the next excerpt (next post), however, most of these job tiles are actually technicians or service line work. Obviously none can legally be employed as professional engineers and not a single graduate reported being employed as an engineering manager or professional engineer which is common for engineering graduates at 5-6 years experience as in this excerpt.
As shown from the excerpt
>MOST PHYSICS GRADUATES WORK DEAD END JOBS WHICH TECHNICIANS AND ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGIST COULD DO WITH A TRADE DIPLOMA
In industry this inevitably means your supervisor/manager will be a professional engineer (YES, YOU WILL BE WORKING UNDER A REAL ENGINEER)
Furthermore we can see that from the few who got into R&D
MOST PHYSICS RESEARCH JOBS ARE LAB ASSISTANTS AND TECHNICIANS
Don't be stupid, work harder to get an engineering bachelors and reap the benefits, you can always do a physics PhD on top of getting a money shitting Pr.Eng. don't be 22 and have no respect or money LIKE REAL PEOPLE that age.
