Mother Gaia by humon Mother Gaia by humon
A little something I made while at work.

I'm actually not much of an environmentalist, but I couldn't help myself when I got the idea after reading an article. :XD:

If this was really mothers Earth's attitude ... I would suddenly feel 100% ok about every species we ever sent extinct, and every forest we burned to the ground.

If humans can't live in something, a great number of other species also won't be able to live. We're more adaptable than most.

4 billion years ago, it was the cyanobacteria doing this.

Now it's our turn.

Just a little thought for everyone.

"Nature is adaptable" b**ch please in that regard were more nature then earth will ever be, we live in the desert and in the arctics, we have walked the moon and landed on a comet and mappet mars now that's adaptability!

listen i'm not saying we're not shooting yourself in the foot with this hole messing with nature fragile balance, BUT! when it comes adaptability whether it be animals plants or fungi, humans are unmatched. 
(and don't even get me started on the hole humans are not natural thing.)

Actually, we're just resourceful. Bacteria are actually the most adaptable organisms on the planet. They can live in extreme climates, without oxygen, and are constantly adapting and evolving. And above bacteria would be viruses, if they were considered to be living creatures, which is actually being debated.

You're technically correct it all depends on your definition of life i'm talking about multicellular organisme. Not single cellular, If we talk about organisms that do not have a nucleus i could say a rock is more adaptable then humans. Which is (again) technically correct.

Well think about it. The world has gone thought something called "evolition". Now, the nature has always been there, there's still grass, flower and trees. Now us humans. We will be gone someday. We'll change to something else or just be gone. THE NATURE WILL STILL BE THERE LIKE WHEN THE DINOSAURS WAS GONE DEAD. See?

At what point did i say humans are gonna out live Earth? Answer never.
what i said was when mother nature here* said nature will find a way. I responded with oh yeah? we will (hopefully) find another way of living because previous events has shown that humans can achieve what seems impossible from a natural point of view, we have defined our natural boundaries on multiple occasion and we will continue doing so for many years to come. 

(TL;DR) Being able to survive / dominate in such vastly different and harsh places and still be the dominant species in such a relatively small time frame  just shows how adabtle we are.

"We will (hopefully) find another way of living" well it is a little chance that it will happen. Sure we humans can achieve what seems impossible but when the time is near, we human can be ignorant and forget what is really danger while nature can live with it.

I agree, we can't destroy nature, sure we can drive some species to extinction and damage habitats but nature will adapt and new species eventually will evolve to fill the gaps. Nature is tough and extinction is an important part of the process of life and evolution, we for one would not be here if the dinosaur hadn't died out and enabled our mammalian ancestors to evolve and we will not be here forever, the fate of all species is extinction eventually, that is not a bad thing, that is just how it is. I am not an environmentalist, I will do some things to help nature but I do so because I care for individual creatures, and also partially out of selfish reasons, I enjoy nature and therefore want to conserve it so I can continue to enjoy it. For example I feed the birds in the garden because I enjoy watching them, not because I want to save them from extinction. The birds don't know or care about extinction. I sort of zone out when people start talking about how we are 'destroying the planet', yes we are apparently in the middle of a mass extinction but that isn't necessarily a bad thing, mass extinctions have happened before and to me they just seem like the end of a chapter in life's history. There will be a new chapter, whether or not the human race will feature remains to be seen.

That's nature for you.  If we ever do ourselves in, something else comes along over time and might pick up where we left off (perhaps with enough awareness of what it does to avoid doing the same thing).  In fact, I'd consider it the height of hubris to think that what we do now will end the world.

As artist John Byrne put it, this world will be around long after we're gone, with new lifeforms evolving, filling in niches of those which died off before them, or creating new ones to be exploited.  I would doubt that even if the sun were to reach its "red supergiant" stage that life would truly end (somewhere beneath the surface, sulfur-metabolizing bacteria might be able to maintain a slow-motion life for eons while the surface cools off afterwards).

It's like when they say we all need to do our part to "save the planet". The planet doesn't need saving! Ever since it was formed 4.54 billion years ago, it has been through a lot more than the sea and temperatures rising, pollution and the extinction of species. The only ones who are so affected are the humans.

Appreciate the art style, and the type of humor you're going for is probably meant to be taken lightheartedly, but still, just promotes another cynical, "all humans deserve to die" worldview.

Yeah man, you've got the right view on this piece of shit.

Look at the people here. They might as well be suicidal. When you said "It promotes 'all humans deserve to die' worldview", You were completely right. The people here are obviously affected.

"I have always said if humans went extinct, it would not be a catastrophy. At all."

"It's like when they say we all need to do our part to "save the planet". The planet doesn't need saving! Ever since it was formed 4.54 billion years ago, it has been through a lot more than the sea and temperatures rising, pollution and the extinction of species.

"yep humans are arrogant creatures XD"

"Well Gaia has spoken, the human race is screwed."

And ESPECIALLY this guy...

My opinions on climate change:

Governments wont care about the environment until it is cost effective.
Saving the planet will also have to be a group effort.
No more saying "what difference will one person make" because that is everyone says.
We need to support new technology, in few years solar power, wind power and other sources may be many times more efficient.  We're an intelligent species who knows we may come up with the answer to climate change in our lifetime God willing.
We really need to cut our dependency on a finite fuel, that will not last forever and pollutes our air.
We need to look are other causes of climate change also, did you know cattle produces huge amounts of green house gasses?
I think we can do something about our environmental woes but it is going to take work.

I sadly don't know much about the environment, but been watching videos from this funny ozzy bloke called "Friendlyjordies" on youtube has some good videos on climate change and his countries environment/politics etc. 

You can join an environmentalist group and get advice from people who know way more than me.

Anyway funny picture!
