      Sadly most of nature is disappearing as the human population expands and needs more resources to survive like water, wood, food crops, fuel crops and wild nature like forests and wetlands and deserts are being replaced by land to provide these resources. You can see all these changes from space and measure it. If we don’t reduce the number of fossil fuels we burn then greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide will increase in the atmosphere and trap more an more heat from the sun. Too much heat makes our climate chaotic and unpredictable. This is dangerous for humans but I think the Earth will change and continue as before even without humans,
