There are two ways to interpret this question:
Will humans exist in 3029 or will humans exist on
Earth in 3029?
The first question deals with whether humanity
will be extinct by 3029. In the lifespan of
species, 1000 more years is generally fairly
insignificant. Many species have survived for
millions of years. However, human civilization has
the unique ability to dramatically change its
Generally, possible human extinction events
include nuclear war, climate change, asteroid
artificial intelligence takeover. It’s
difficult to know how likely any of these events
are. As far as consuming lots of plants and other
materials, this generally shouldn’t a problem
if we use renewable resources. Plants are
renewable since they get energy from the sun so as
long as we carefully control our consumption, this
shouldn’t be a problem. Materials like oil and
coal are not renewable so someday we could run out
of them. However, we don’t necessarily need
these materials to survive.
The other way to interpret this question is
whether humanity will have become a space-faring
species so that we’ll live on other planets (or
moons). In this case, if Earth sustained too much
damage,humans could move to other planets.
Although, one would think that even if humanity
spread to other planets, there would always be
some group of people that stay on Earth.
