Humans are parasites

For decades there has been this huge debate about climate change, entailing its impact on the world and even if it’s real or not. Allow me to clarify: climate change isn’t a problem. It’s very real, indeed but it isn’t a problem. All we’re doing is making the Earth eventually uninhabitable for humans, which, when you think about it, might actually be a good thing. 

Now, this article isn’t actually about climate change, I’m really trying to say that the human race sucks. Humans demonstrate characteristics that are strikingly similar to parasites. The biological definition of a parasite is an organism that derives benefit at the expense of another host organism. In that case, global warming is just a fever, a defense mechanism that’s meant to get rid of us. If Earth loses a couple icebergs along the way, it’s a small price to pay.

Every other species on the planet has evolved in such a way as not to disrupt the natural flow of their ecosystems. Humans, on the other hand, dig their arrogant hands wherever they are not supposed to, causing problems as they go along. Even mosquitoes have a valuable place in the biosphere; they may be a nuisance, but spiders and other creatures up the food chain rely on them. The only animals that rely on humans are the ones that we have domesticated to our liking.

In the grand scheme of things, humans have had no positive impact on the environment, contributing nothing to the ecosystem, because we believe we are above it for some odd reason. Honestly, why start now then? Just let the climate change, let our parasitic species go extinct, and let the Earth evolve again.
