The day will come when nature will reclaim what is hers. That is not speculation, it is the honest truth. In the grand scheme of things, modern humans have only been around for a split second.
For several hundred thousand years our ancestors were bands of nomadic tribes who followed the herds. Around 10,000 years ago our ancestors developed agriculture and domesticated livestock (animal husbandry).
We only entered the space age a few decades ago.
For all the progress we claim to have made, we still kill each other over money, jealously, and religion. How do we rate whether a society is successful? Maybe by how well we take care of each other? Studies show Neanderthals took care of their sick and injured. Even primates take care of their injured. Yet, we have people dying because they can not afford medical care.
In our lust for money human compassion has been cast to the wayside.
