This piece is a meditation on planetary habitability and how much control we have over our environmental outcomes. Are we, collectively, the captains of our own fate, or are we hapless passengers, subject to the whims of misinformation, greed, apathy, and forces we can't perceive? The dinosaurs probably would have had some ideas, although they were likely blameless for the cataclysm that sealed their doom.
