This quote is from the bbc news: I was thinking about this, and how the cycle of life is so much in tune, while we humans are no longer part of that chain ... I mean, many people campaign for the environment, trying to stop the shit that we humans do; stuff like pollution, waste, exploitation of land and livestock, global warming etc. However, are we arrogant in thinking that we can destroy the planet? Will we really have that much impact in the long term ... or will nature just outlast us and survive regardless of what we do? On one extreme we have the devastation in Asia ... then on the other end of the scale we have simple things like grass appearing through the cracks in neglected roads - nature winning against us no matter what. So in thousands of years time, when man is no more ... I wonder how much of an impact we really would have had.
