End of Days

While I was catching up on today's news, this story caught me eye. Here is a flavor:

"Of all the generations of humans that have walked the surface of the Earth for 100,000 years, going back when we first left Africa the generation now alive is the most important," said Michio Kaku, professor of theoretical physics at City University of New York.

"The generation now alive, the generation that you see, looking around you, for the first time in history, is the generation that controls the destiny of the planet itself."

How can someone say something like that with a straight face?

I guess I am not smart enough to make accurate value judgments about the relative "worth" of various generations throughout history.
