Are we more destructive than termites or army ants?Serious question: what is the worst thing that would happen if people went extinct? Is there any intrinsic value in a human being, and if so what is it? We are destructive by nature. If the goal is the save the world shouldn't the process include eradicating the humans, since they are the most destructive species? Why are we concerned about propagating our species at all anyway?
If I had money to put down I'd say humans are the all time champs at wiping out other species.How many species have they directly driven extinct?
An archetypical Authoritarian question.Who they are supposed to be, at any rate.
We are pretty close to the capacity in our labs of restoring lost species and trying again to set them loose on the world.. Or creating new species. I think we can do a lot of that, given a few brand new worlds and billions of years of research.Less than 1% of all the species that have gone extinct, but possibly more than any other species.
