Humanity is "destroying" the planet. ALL of the stories of <whatever> is "destroying the planet" is because we have too many people. But they are wrong. We cannot destroy the planet -- all we can do is kill off humanity.
The planet was going just fine, until "life" happened. But the planet survived.
Then "life" was doing just fine, until green plants happened, polluted the air with free oxygen. But the planet survived.
There was a Permo-Triassic mass extinction wiped out up to 70 percent of all land animals and 96 percent of all marine species, about 250 millions of years ago. But the planet survived.
About 66 millions a year a rather asteroid hit the planet, ash and soot from the impact then blocked the sun, causing a global winter that killed off more than 75 percent of the species on the planet. But the planet survived.
The planet currently is has humanity killing of the rest of the species on the planet. Eventually humanity will kill itself as well. AND the planet will still survive.
