George Carlin said it best...People say 'save the earth,' as if it needs saving. The earth is not in any danger! It is PEOPLE who are an endangered species!
I don't think the end of mankind would solve all the problems; we are so quick to blame ourselves. Species can still become extinct... but without humans the world will quickly adapt and return to a natural equilibrium.
I recall that the vast majority of now extinct species were killed off by the introduction of a poisonous gas into our atmosphere. That gas was oxygen. Granted these were very simple organisms, from back when Strom Thurmond was young.Things do look grim in some regards, but I think humanity somehow pulls itself out of the fire just in time. I admit we have to work on improving our mistakes, but I don't see Soylent Green as prophecy, either.
