Earth Day is about Humans


No matter what we do — even if we press all of the red buttons and vaporize a good chunk of the planet’s surface — I promise you that the earth will be fine. It has survived extinction events in the past, and it can do it again. I certainly hope that isn’t what happens. But I only hope it because, as a member of the only species that is capable of appreciating the beauty of this place, it would just be a shame to diminish it.
