Earth will survive, but will we?

Antarctic Geologist and professor in the Earth and Environmental Science Department Molly Miller argues that the Earth will survive climate change, but humans may not do quite so well. “Many well-meaning folks want to ‘save the Earth,’ but that really is not necessary. The Earth has been functioning just fine over its 4.6 billion year history, and will continue to do so… What we’re really talking about here is saving ourselves and minimizing human suffering.”
