    James Lovelock the father of the Gaia Hypothesis was pretty much saying the same thing 20-30 years ago. The planet doesn’t care (to anthropomorphize a bit here) about humans and their global tech civilization. We can only hope that the great die-off that started in the 1970’s will spare enough species so that the planet can eventually return to some form of equilibrium. Earth has survived hotter periods in the past and it will again. But the naked ape that we are won’t be sitting at the buffet table (I hope).
