churchill - apart from pirate227’s very appropriate remark above, there’s plenty of evidence that we HAVE made a herculean effort to change the environment, or AGW wouldn’t exist.
But even ignoring that for the moment, as far back as the 1970s physicists came up with a relatively simple way to destroy all life on Earth above, say, microbial level. Place a series of H-Bombs around the “Ring of Fire” where the continental plates meet around the edges of the Pacific Ocean – it wouldn’t take more than a fraction of the 10,000 warheads we have – and set them off simultaneously in order to lift the edge of the continental plate. Ocean water pouring into hot magma would burst into steam and blow off the crust of the Earth “like peeling the cover off a baseball.”
