: : But the idea that leveling rainforests is going to have huge negative impacts upon the human species (like introducing new pathenogenic organisms, reducing atmospheric oxygen content, etc.) is ludicrous. That still doesn't make losing the rainforests any less tragic, but the tragedy lies in the loss of diversity, and will probably ultimately NOT impact the human race.
