    First of all ..if humans disappeared then no trees would be able to survive ...cause we them give carbon-dioxide that we release while breathing .... And even if animals are there Then I don't think that the CO2 realeased by them would be enough for the plants and eventually the condition of earth would become worse....cause everything is interconnected and inter dependent ... Unity is diversity

    The world would be a better place if we were not there and I would be happy if we did not exist on this beautiful planet. We destroyed and corrupted it soon no more plants and animals. Not gonna happen in our generation but it will happen in your future generations. May you Rest In Peace Earth :) 🌏.

    The planet could do great without humans but what about those dams that we built? They will be destroyed causing massive floods. What about those planet killing asteroids? And what about those volcanoes that threaten the existence of life? Humans are part of the balance and before we go everything goes.
