We’re At Nature’s Mercy
No matter how many inventions we create, and no matter how much technology we have, it doesn’t matter. If one giant tornado or hurricane came across the Earth, that’s it. It happened once with the asteroid, and it could happen again. As Neil deGrasse Tyson puts it, “Even with all our technology and the inventions that make modern life so much easier than it once was, it takes just one big natural disaster to wipe all that away and remind us that, here on Earth, we’re still at the mercy of nature.” It’s a terrifying and beautiful thought. No matter how much we try to fight for the survival of our species, it’s really up to the universe to decide (LinkedIn).
