If you had to choose between survival of your species or survival of your planet, which would you choose, and why?
This hypothetical question came to me as I was reading another question here about extinction and human ravages on the planet. So if it would take the obliteration of the human race to return the planet to pristine condition, would that be the goal? Or would the condition of the planet not matter if humans were not here to enjoy it?
