"I think both of those are bigger threats than anything else other than the ever-present crisis of climate change."

Pandemics and misinformation are a huge danger to humans. But climate change can affect the entire ecosystem. And the DNA is the core of most living things. Humans and oak trees are about 70% compatible. So if the humans destroy themselves, it's not such a big deal. In fact all the animals are planning a sing-along for the day the final human dies.

Agreed. That's why I said bigger "other than" just in case I wasn't clear. Climate change is definitely the worst. Nature has always tried to kill us now we're killing it. But as you say, it would be quite fine without us but not the other way around. Look at Chornobyl. The ecosystem appears to be better off there because the humans moved out. Apparently, we're worse than a meltdown.
