Asked a question last year

What specific eras and events in our history have caused the most irreversible damage to our planet?

Where am I?

The present time, by far. It is reversible, though, in the long run. If we make a major effort - greater than the US effort in World War II - we can stabilize the climate and government debt in a few decades, and then return to normal in a century or so. If we continue on the present path, we will see the mother of all collapse. Then we will be extinct or living in the stone age again, and the Earth will recover over a few centuries. If there are a lot more extinctions, it will take a few million years for evolution to restore biodiversity.
