Earth without Us

I caught myself wondering today what Earth would be like if humans, or any form of our species, hadn’t existed. I know evolution is a natural part of the world, but I’ve been wondering why the Gods would create us if we just destroy what we are given. It is second nature to us now, the pollution and dirty air, that most of us don’t even think about it at all.

Would Earth be beautiful everywhere? How much of the world would be covered in forest? Ocean? Ice? How many species would still be alive if we had never come along to drive them to extinction?
