Pest Species

Pests are organims that interfere with the human tendency to modify the landscape for their own use. Pests don't exist in the natural state but when we monoculture corn and other crops, specific bugs tend to think we've created a paradise just for them. And we call these pests and we wage battles battles for a few thousands of years. But we lose the war in the end. We all know the story. Humans go on for a long time. Diversity in the rest of life on Earth dies, species by species. Humans eat corn and drink high fructose corn syrup fizzy drinks. Humans eventually kill the majority of species that existed back when they learned to farm. Nearly everything dies by way of neglect or, arguably, human necessity. Human life gets boring and less inspiring because nature is grass and 3 kinds of landscaping trees, and dogs and cats. The honeybees are gone and diversity in fruits and vegetables is gone. Humans eventually phase out their own species. Then evolution marches on, as it always does (minus humans). Just kidding! The real ending is that humans eventually figure out that they are the only pest species on the planet and, only after many MANY species are lost, they turn things around. But we were here when things were interesting. We were here at that turning point. We started to make a difference?
