Sustain ability!!!

We should look with awe at the immense ability of Earth's biosphere to sustain itself. In the millions of years of life on Earth, this ability always persisted.

Can humans have an impact on Earth's biosphere to the extent of an asteroid? I think so. If we'd really wage a war...
