The damage is being done as we speak, animals are becoming extinct, marine wildlife is being seriously overfished and killed with waste etc etc etc. It is worrying because when I do eventually have kids I'd love for them to see nature etc with their own eyes vs old pictures on the internet. I never used to give a rats when I was younger but the more interested I become in wildlife the more shocked I get to see most of the stuff is being killed off.
It's ignorant to think that we aren't harming it tbh.
killing off or extinct wildlife is not the same . . and you forgot about the dinosaurs. oh wait, can't blame humans for that now, can you?
which brings the point of ecosystems changing, it's called evolution and it doesn't also go the way we (or what would be the dominate species at the time) would like it to go. read some books on the history of the planet or watch a few dozen documentaries on you tube even (but none have it all correct as we find out more every day).
and please don't use the "ignorance card." go find out how it was an extraordinary course of events that brought the human race into existence in the first place. then tell me how we control our destiny let alone a planet's.
until then, take care.
