At this point, most other life on Earth *would* probably be better off, though our behavior does benefit some organisms. We’re creating a world ideal for certain rodents, roaches, jellyfish, creeping vines, mold, mosquitoes, ants and termites, which I wouldn’t have a problem with except that I like all those other organisms that are dying off, too.
It is also worth noting that plastic islands are opening up whole new worlds for plants (who previously held a very small foothold outside land masses), insects (ditto), and many microbes.
Humans are causing a mass extinction right now, but at the same time, we’re paving the way for lifeforms that didn’t stand a chance before (think the explosion of mammalian evolution after the extinction of most dinosaurs). In destroying one ecosystem, we create another …
Unfortunately, many of the ecosystems we’re destroying are ones we depend on. This comic by humon sums it up pretty well.
