The world is not coming to an end. "Mother Earth" is not lashing out against human beings. Humanities influence on the Earth is not causing some huge catastrophe. To even think that we humans can affect something so much bigger than we are is arrogant. Human beings, as we know it, are the only sentient beings on the planet that probably even thinks about our environment. The Earth is always changing and shifting. It has so for billions of years. Science has shown light as to the nature of the disasters that happen to us, and so we are seeing the affects of those disasters much clearer than just a few hundred years ago. Because of things like the Internet, we receive information a lot faster than those before us so disasters seem to happen much more often. Because there are a lot more human beings, disaster affect a larger number of humans.
I'm not saying the Earth is safe from sure destruction. Unless science allows us to move our Earth or prevent the coming disaster, in about 5,000,000,000 years the sun will loose all of its Hydrogen. As a result, it will being expanding to a size that it intercepts with Mercury, Venus, and probably Earth. Even if it doesn't touch the Earth, the radiation from the sun will be enough to turn the surface of the planet into a barren wasteland with not atmosphere. If humans are still around, they will most likely be off on some other planet. This is probably the most likely candidate for the complete destruction of our little planet.
