Better off for who? For biodiversity? Yeah. For the earth itself? It wouldn't give a shit. We're probably not going to affect the lifespan of the earth in any meaningful way.

i never heard of a water crisis outside of local areas predisposed to drought. how was earth's life simpler before people? do you think the earth has a preference?

one of our main problems is the water crisis. this crisis is connected to global warming. global warming is in part due to pollution. pollution comes from industrial production we developed as a species to make our pasty lives easier. if we never were a part of Earth's cycle life could be simple again and go as it pleased.

a species that can think and ask, that may make mistakes, but will hopefully also work to fix them.

maybe it is for the ultimate better

we completely decimated the biodiversity and show no signs of slowing down.
