Earth is not conscious or sentient. We, the homo sapiens, are. From the collected human knowledge so far, we are the only ones. And this is our first time doing it. So gimme a break. Its a no brainer the Earth will heal. But the mutual goal ie win-win situation is that how can the humans repair the damage and maybe even return the Earth to a healthier state than it ever has been. That isn't bad proposition for either party. We are on the same fucking side.
