Most Destructive Animal!

A world without humans


This is a very bold statement because humans are responsible for creating near enough everything on the planet… however, humans are also responsible for most of the destruction on this planet, which begs the question, would the Earth be better off without us? Whilst people will argue humans have made many technological advancements and are the most intelligent species to date, they are also the most the most damaging to the planet. Somewhere between 3.5 and 7 billion trees are cut down each year to create space for homes and cities and for building resources like wood. Not only are we cutting them down, they are beginning to become endangered… trees need moisture especially now that droughts around the world are at an all-time high. This is due to the effects of climate change, another man-made problem. If forests are being chopped down, where are habitants meant to go? Forests are resposible for providing shelter to thousands of species. By destroying their homes, many are being killed as surivival outside of their natural habitats is increasingly less likely.

If humans had never set foot on the planet there would be no climate change, if the earth wasn’t polluted by greenhouse gas emissions, ice caps wouldn’t be melting, the temperature wouldn’t be rising, and certain animals wouldn’t be in danger.

Cities would never have been built which means forests would be thick and would be all over earth, giving animals more of a habitat. People are the main cause of extinction through hunting for food and also killing for fun and valuable parts of animals, like ivory. Countless species of animals have been driven to extinction by hunters and poachers, even to this day after well intentioned attempts to protect them. So, we can definitely say without humans the world would be a much more peaceful place. Violence between animals would still occur nevertheless. That is unstoppable and natural. Currently the most endangered animal in the world is the Javan rhino. It is said there is less than 60 left in the wild.

Humans have caused death and destruction for thousands of years and without question the world would be a better place if humans didn’t exist, not only this but the planet would also live a longer life.
