Would the world be a better place without humans?

Asked by: apoyo
  • Is the world really better with humans?

    We humans destroy this world, this place would be better off without us. We pollute the air, destroy highly forested areas, we destroy habitats for building areas, and global warming is because of us. If it were up to me, I would go to Russia, get infected by the small pox that they hold, and run around hugging people to get them infected screaming "HUG OF DEATH" I know what you're thinking, "what about a vaccine can't we use that?" No. The Small Pox in Russia is immune to the immunity we have. So we would all die.

  • Man is a cataclysmic extinction causer and damaging to Earths ecosystem

    Our success has come at a heavy price on the world's ecosystem. Many animals have, and are going to extinct because of us. Many can't compete with us and are dying. We are destroying forests, polluting lakes and rivers, taking up natural resources, farming animals for slaughter, keeping animals in captivity, testing on animals, killing animals for sport, introducing diseases like Myxomatosis, introducing species to other countries devastating the native wildlife, using pesticide and other toxic chemicals, tampering with genetics (eg GM crops and Africanized Killer bees), dropping atomic bombs and building unstable power generators that can leak radiation into the atmosphere, exploiting animals for entertainment (eg bullfighting, cockfighting, Roman Gladiatorial tournaments, and racing), hunting to extinction (eg Mammoth, Dodo), creating dams and irrigation which tampers with the natural course of flowing rivers, causing of global warming and smog which is melting the ice caps (affecting animals like the polar bear), drilling up and leaking oil which spills in the seas covering animals like sea gulls and seals, mining and fracking, creating non-biodegradable plastics that won't rot until a thousand years and littering man-made rubbish, using up non-renewable resources like fossil fuels, ect. The things we have done can never be reversed.

    Man is basically other animals worse nightmare. Worst thing is, we are a growing population so our effects on the environment and ecosystems will accelerate and continue to get worse. We need more land for food, water, and housing. We are bad for the diversity of the world, otherwise inhabited by more different animals and a healthier mix of species.

  • Yes it would.

    Humans have caused the extinction of hundreds of thousands of species, have burned down thousands of acres of good forests, and have caused atmospheric heating, which will eventually lead to the flooding of thousands of acres of land. It is the undeniable truth: Humanity is ruining this planet with fuels and chemicals.

  • Yes yes yes

    Sad to say humans destroyed this world.... We are killing species with pollution and hunting. We start wars and destroy mountains and jungles. We take the worlds natural resources and make dams in rivers. If no humans existed then the world would be a much more beautiful place. Too bad we couldn't control ourselves....

  • Yes it would

    Biospheres would have a more functionally sound food chain, but since the earth has us in it we would most notably never know just have hypothesised imaginary conclusions to our cognitive disposition of us beinghere so, its a toss up, so i go for yes it would be more better

  • Humans can't seem to care to be good.

    We're going to ignore the idea that 'better' is a human idea and that for humans our own existence is best. This refers to 'better for other living beings'.

    Throughout history people have proved over and over again our destructive power. It is without question that we are the worlds most cruel, careless, destructive, and murderous animal alive. We are selfish to a point of earthly destruction, careless to the point of killing, and all for what? Brains? With our brains we are heating up the Earth over ten times faster than ever before. And thanks to our carelessness, we breed and breed and breed...And breed some more! It is careless. With so many of us, the Earth is starting to take horrible turns. The air is worse, the land is worse, everything natural is worse. And that includes us.

    I think it rotten that we call ourselves so high and mighty, that we think the extinction of everything else is worth our survival. Without the technology or materials to provide a permanent solution to the protection of Earth's creatures, their is no saying we would be beneficial in the long run. Not to mention that the creation of such things might inevitably mean the destruction of everything else.

    History is a good reference for the future. Take a look at history, back when there were no people. There were mammoths and mastodons, there were Dodo birds and Thylacines and Quaggas. Look at where we are now. It seems pretty obvious to me that history has given a pretty strong indicator that the Earth was already better without humans.

  • Ashamed to say YES!

    Most of the animals show us that we don't have there morality and there displayed love for each other and even for us. What went wrong with mankind. Why are we so bent on scrubbing the world clean off and we seem to be very skilfully at doing it it's madness.

  • Way better, but we need to change human to hominids.

    We are by far the most dangerous animal to ever live. With 7 billion of us along with millions on the way our environment is on a struggling path to survive. I don't have kids, but both my neighbors have five each. Do the parents believe these kids will find those ten extra jobs needed in 10 to 15 years? Haiti, East Timor, Cambodia and Somalia are in ruins. Why do these people make time to breed more people in such tragic environments? We are animals and sex is a way of life. We love breeding. Feed the world projects have really contributed to the 24,000 plus lives lost all around the world each day. Only around 8,000 were on the daily death list 40 years ago. Basically, these feed the world projects fed the problem. And they will continue to make it worse. We need to be nutered, chemically castered or learn to be responsible.

  • It would not

    We make this shit lit fam, you can't seriously think a world without or dank memes and purple lean would be good? Fr fr dude, learn your place. This is the dumbest question ever.
    Lmao id punch ur throat for asking that question
    -some bitch named deltreese, the ho with Darrell

  • No it wouldnt

    Humans are the only species that would be able to stop an asteroid destroying the earth, so without us everyone other species would die, humans might cause pollution and deforestation but without us there would be nothing left on earth, we are earths only hope of a more permanent survival

  • The Concept of "Better" Only Exists Because of Humans

    Without humans, there would be no concept of better, and this question would have no meaning. Without a specific definition of better, this is a useless question. Any qualities listed are merely arbitrary. This is a poor way to look at the differences in my opinion. We can talk about what earth might be like if the human species was to go extinct, but to try to qualify an event based on subjective opinion seems a waste of time to me.

  • It's always the same.

    "Good" and "bad" are subjective. Objectively, the world is as "good" or "bad" as it was since the beginning and always will be.
    And without humans, there would probably be nobody left to appreciate how "good" earth would be, nor anybody to be sad about how "bad" it had become.

  • Better for who?

    In general, I'm pretty sure the world would be "healthier" without our pollution and other harmful effects, but that doesn't necessarily constitute "better". There's many animals and plants that exists thanks to human intervention, like farm and domesticated animals and many different forms of plants that we use for food. Most of those would die off without us, for a number of reasons. So for those things and particularly us, it would not be a better place.
