Environmental Concerns and Overpopulation

Right now , the planet is dry , harsh , chemically afflicted , very uneasy , reeling from distress , and soon to get worse . By creating a ruckus , though , the earth manages to clean itself , shake off some humans and decrease pollution . Will life support systems be able to cleanse and come into new balance ?
