    What I think is that humans are the wost thing that has ever happend to other species or eco systems. We have to change direction of acts we do or we will be in those glass vitrines too.

    If humans didn't exist, something else would take our place as top predator.

    So you self-hating tools can calm down with your "human-free earth" fantasies.
