Mankind vs Tardigrade

 

by Dawn Knox

One day, Earth’s conditions may become too hostile for human survival.

When deserts are scorched, land is flooded and temperatures plummet or soar, making life impossible… the Tardigrade may become the dominant lifeform on Earth.

Tardigrade?

An alien species?

Or science fiction?

Neither.

These microscopic creatures have inhabited Earth since Cambrian times. They’re ugly, wrinkled, eight-legged, creatures which withstand desiccation, boiling, freezing, crushing and radiation—yet still survive.

Mankind, with its intelligence, empathy and creativity, seems unwilling or unable to respond to the threat of climate change.

Our negligence may result in our destruction.

Then, Tardigrades will inherit our World.
