I do think that we will evolve more if there are more pressures on human life. If the climater does change it is likely that we will all have darker skin – also the human race seems to be getting taller (check out Japan!) – what do you think will happen to the human race?
Hi Cheezybeanz – good to chat with you the other day.
I do not think we are really evolving at the moment. There is no selection pressure on us to evolve. In a way, evolution has moved from the natural world, to technology. Now technology evolves to allow us to do things that we could never have done before, it allows us to live in climates that we would never have been able to live in (like in space in a space station, or under the sea in a submarine). We have air conditioning for the summer and central heating for the winter. Also, we look after the weaker people in our society (or at least we should) and so they survive to reproduce, rather than dying out.
