Think about this: Four-and-a-half billion years ago, this earth was a ball of fire and has changed to what it is today and is continually changing. Just because the human population came on to this earth doesn’t mean that the earth stops changing. If all the people of the world stopped smoke, it would not change the action of the universe.
Water attracts all humans to the water’s edge — streams lakes, seasides. So look around at other planets in different stages of change and what earth may look like in the future. If you find yourself in knee-deep water, don’t be stupid. Go to higher ground.
