In one of the matrix movies the 'machine' states that they see humans as a virus plaguing the earth slowing killing it. This sort of rings true when you see what it happening today and the dramatic changes taking place.
Hopefully things can rebound.

To prove a scientific consensus on global climate change, Oreskes searched the scientific literature for papers published between 1993 and 2003 with the words "global climate change" in their abstracts. She found 928.

I've seen it first hand at the extremes of our planet: glacier retreat in Alaska, bleaching coral near the Equator, spruce bark beetle in AK and Canada and weather shifts in the Pacific. It is difficult, I think, for many to accept that an entity as large as the Earth can be affected by humans burning carbon. All that carbon in coal and oil, sequestered for millions of years, is now free in the atmosphere.
