this is pretty anthropocentric. Sure, the world will be an awful place for humans, but many, many other species will thrive (consider how much better the world will be for cockroaches without humans and their pesky Raid cans). Why should we define a world as dying just because humans are so stupid that they provoke the environmental conditions that lead to their own demise?
