I wouldn’t say it as you did, because the planet surely doesn’t care about humanity. But it will go down like this: Earth’s stressed ecology will reduce our numbers and other species by consequence—it’s begun—to where those left, if any, can’t actually do anymore harm to the system. Yes, that means substantial loss to the human population, to the point it scratches for survival and growth economics is myth. That’ll be the best saving of humanity we can hope for, and what we’ll deserve.
