I agree that humans are awesome. I think this video exposes the failure of the environmental movement. We think that we 'hurt the earth' in some way through our effect on the global climate and biodiversity, but the earth has a long clock. Toxic rivers, given ten or twenty thousand years, will get clean. The earth has suffered massive loses in biodiversity only to bounce back with vertebrates, dinosaurs and humans. The earth can handle it.
It's we humans that can't. The current level of consumption by the world's few fortunate (nearly everyone reading this is a member of this group), consume TOO MUCH of the world's energy in the form of energy, food, travel, etc. If we truly want a world in which all people can live a healthy and productive life, then we have to be prepared to make some radical changes. Changes like rethinking cars and airplanes, like rethinking consumer electronics. The pursuit of technological innovation is not ethical.
I may post a video about this. Let me know if you think I should.
