Geophysics professor Klaus Lackner pinpoints 2042 as the year of doom:

On current trends, the earth is only 35 years away from the point at which global warming would be impossible to reverse, Lackner said, and “we need to throw everything we can at the problem.”

I suggest we throw Klaus Lackner at it. Add 2042 to your Doom Lotto board, which already includes 2012 (“Our planet is just five years away from climate change catastrophe …”) and 2016 (“ … if the scientists turn out to be right and we only have 10 years …”). Make your own insane Death Year guesses in comments; correct answer wins your weight in carbon credits.

UPDATE. In other future-gazing news, how much will a Toyota Prius be worth in 2043?
