It's kinda arrogant to think we could destroy the Earth. Sure, we could really **** things up and make it unlivable for us, but the Earth will persist. It's been through tougher things than us.

well, that depends on what you consider the "Earth."

take the planet Venus for example: Venus used to be just like the Earth, but due to an excess of CO2, the planet heated up out of control, and no longer has any water, which prevents plate tectonics. without plate tectonics, the built up energy under the surface has to be released via planet-wide volcanism.

if we **** up the atmosphere even just a little bit, we'll set up a chain reaction that will destroy the Earth as we know it. sure, our ball of rock will still float through space in orbit around the Sun, but it won't be what we consider the "Earth"
