Not that some random comment on Internet will convince you but yes we're the first species to change the environment in this short a timescale.

Even China has rules and regulations. And as for banking reform. I believe the UK blocked that one...

Seriously? Germany is the EU powerhouse, has been for decades. Not the UK. Also, Wales voted leave. Scotland and Northern Ireland voted stay. So if anything they'll be rejoining the EU. I know Europe is far away, but at least try to get relevant information before posting.
