    Watch a video on the game Nier Automata. Thatll give you a pretty clear picture on how everything would look as described in the video. It's pretty spot on with the game's interpretation of human extension.

    The human should finally clean the planet and then dissapear, because without the human, the world would be so a nice place for all other species who don't want to conquer the whole planet and kill all the others. So many wonderfull animals were living in the earth and so many were killed by the human who thinks of his self( besteht example is Lonesome George, if you havent heard of him, google the name). The beautifull Earth could live billion years longer if the people wouldnt destroy her. The human is like a snake that its her self to survive, but after a while there is nothing left. It is a start that a few people want to save the world, but... unfortunately it is too late

    If humans dissapear, life on the earth would have a terrible fate when the sun dies, because humans are the only chance life of this planet have to escape from that disaster, without humans, life would be forever stuck on this planet and then, all life forms of the planet would die when the sun does, the earth and all his life would be vanished forever from the universe

    Ever wondered if we weren’t the first smart civilization? What if there was a civilization before us but they got extinct and all they’re belongings disappeared.
    What if dinosaurs were just as smart as us but they’re gadgets and items disappeared over time.
    Our life is actually pretty meaningless now that you think about it. We may be important now but overtime, if you don’t make an image of yourself that many people will remember, you’ll be a forgotten being.
    We can disappear just like that. And the future civilization might never know about us.

    Instead of raging in the comments about whether or not humans destroyed earth, just be grateful for the fact the we are alive to experiance the earth as it if. Who knows it might get even worse in a couple hundred years! So instead of complaining about what humans have done so far, actually EMBRACE what weve done whether it be man made or natural :)
