Yeah, I know. We could even magicly clean up our act, reduce our population to a sustainable, no harm/no foul level, and still lose. A giant asteroid impact like the K-T boundary dinosaur killer, or the slumbering mega-volcano underneath Yellowstone might cash in all our chips without any assistance from us, and no advance warnings.
But honestly, if we render this planet uninhabitable for humans, that is quite "dead" enough for me. I realize it's a human-centric viewpoint, but I really don't care about planets I can't live on.
Pandora's a place where one cannot live without a uber-expensive hybrid "avatar" of recombinant human and Na'vi DNA, and the atmosphere is poison. Not really an interesting planet for colonization. Maybe we could "terraform" one of the other moons.
