"We have the fate of the whole (biological) world in our hands!"

Au contraire. The rest of the biological world has the deciding vote.

How long do you imagine that we can continue to burn out our biological support structure from beneath our feet, until we ourselves are expunged?

Michael Pollan observed that Nature doesnt really care if a few hundred square miles is overrun by kudzu for a few hundred years. He was speaking in a local context, but in a larger sense, Nature doesnt care if we have a Canfield ocean for a few million years. She takes every bet. She'll just explore sulphur pathways (again) for a while. And come up with biologies even more interesting no doubt ... which do not include us.

Humans are part of the biology on Earth, and the Holocene was ended and our current era named the Anthropocene for a reason.

Late-night TV roasts Trump on climate: he 'surrendered Florida to the ocean'
Trump's Climate Change Rollback Reviewed By Woodsy The Owl

Seth Myers take on Trump:
During a press conference. Sean Spicer’s response to a question about Russia was to blame the press for making links that aren’t there. He claimed that if Trump used Russian dressing on a salad, people would see it as a connection. “The most suspicious thing about that scenario is the idea that Trump would eat a salad,” he said.

Edit: Took a few tries and googling before I found the change https to http advice.
