Man is a virus and the Earth caught it... It goes in remission from time to time but there is no cure.
I bet the earth will survive... us... well I really could care less.

A leading earthquake scientist has warned that the planet could be cracking up after a series of massive quakes in just 48 hours.
-Expert Gheorghe Marmureanu - from Romania's National Institute of Earth Physics
According to Marmureanu, there is no relation between the quakes that shook the planet during the last two days, but what happened in Indonesia came as a surprise that cannot be explained by science. “Statistics show that, in this region of Asia, there is one big earthquake every 500 years, roughly. However, since 2004, there already were three quakes with magnitudes above 8, which is out of seismological statistics. Something is wrong! There are too many big quakes in the Indonesian area,” Marmureanu warns.
And there is geological evidence to back up this theory. 52,000 years ago the earths north pole was in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
Says study coauthor Kerry Sieh: “If previous cycles are a reliable guide we can expect one or more very large west Sumatran earthquakes … within the next two decades”
