Antaeus (narrating): Ask yourself a question, Miss Jericho: What is humanity? What have you become? A virus perhaps. A cancer. Purveyors of myxomatosis, and thalidomide. Creators of sarin and novichok nerve agents. Fighters in a never-ending, unwinnable war. Dream killers. Life changers. Mass poisoners. Humanity is the first strike, perhaps, in the beginning of the end of the world.

    Honestly, even that rates us too highly. Yes, we can turn the biosphere into an unlivable hothouse full of deadly gas, but so did ancient bacteria when they figured out photosynthesis.

    Humans can’t end the world. At best we’re just another mass extinction event.

    We can certainly end ourselves of course, but the Earth will keep on trucking along just like always.
