How about looking ahead instead of backwards. Maybe we should concentrate our energy on spreading to other planets. The moon, Mars, are in reach, some of the other large moons have interesting prospects, eventually other stars. Human conquest of the galaxy I say!!

Man simply happens to be better at it than any other earth species.

Well I know it sounds kind of scary, but the human race actually is one big giant parasite - which not only kills animals and their habitats around the world but also likes to kill each other very much. Actually we are the only species who actually kill all other animal species and also kill our own species. I am not calling for a VHE; but if this level of human abuse of Mother Nature shall go on, I think we shall get what we deserve pretty quick. Mother Nature always takes care of everything.
Indeed, since the 1970s -- all while the world was warming - polar bear numbers increased dramatically from around 5,000 to as many as 25,000 today (higher than at anytime in the 20th century). And historically, polar bears have thrived in temperatures even warmer than at present -- during the medieval warm period 1000 years ago and during the Holocene Climate Optimum between 5,000 and 9,000 years ago.
