Are human beings may be the worst thing to ever happen to this planet?

“Damien, do you ever consider that human beings may be the worst thing to ever happen to this planet?” – Questioner   My resource, “No, I don’t see it that way at all. As this planet has had like 5 mass extinctions we are not as special as we think we may make it so we can’t live on this world but we could go extinct and the earth will still keep going.”   Top Five Extinctions   Cambrian Explosion: Early life-forms began to flourish.
