Our species survival isn't threatened in the least. In almost any major
worldwide catastrophe, we would be the last large mammal to go. Several of
the other last-ditch survivors, like rats and cockroaches, are parasites on
our society. It's the survival of species that don't have roles in
human-dominated ecosystem which is threatened by human population growth.
