Say what you want, we're a hardy species. So, no matter what we do to the planet, I don't see us completely extinguishing ourselves in the future, near or not, but life will get increasingly hard, the more we destroy our habitat and multiply, and that's for sure.
HOWEVER, calamities can happen... So I always saw the space colonization as a backup plan, eggs in the same basket and all that.
