Why are they in such a mad rush to save one baby? For one, just because this one girl can have a child, does not mean all women will be laying eggs anytime soon. Which brings up to point, what will that kid do when the last person on the planet dies? Not a terribly good way to live.
And, okay, these guys in this future, they got off pretty easy. Isntead of humanity being wiped out coldly, brutally, in a pandemic of earthquake or meteor, everyone as of current can, instead, die of old age. Nobody is going right away. It's a slow, unspectacular swan song to humanity. I see why they all suddenly panic--everything they do from now on, every book they write and movie they film and song they record, journal entries, paintings, conversations, all of it will be meaningless in 100 years, when the last person dies and they're left with nothing but a listless planet, half-dead from pollution and war. I get it, it's depressing.
But, on the bright side, no more babies crying on planes! Hurray!
