The problem with that comment, Dale, is that no one in this thread ever
mentioned any "intelligent design."

Even an atheist can see that living forms are self-regulating
mechanisms. That's not in doubt. Since the ecosystem is a system of
systems, there's no reason to doubt that it too is a self-regulating
mechanism, especially because we can see this in action (e.g. rain
clouds forming when too many particulates are in the air, CO2 fostering
plant growth, water vapor's cooling effect, etc.).

By the way, if people have a need to wring hands, think about this one.
As the sun ages, it becomes hotter. In geological time, this happens
unnervingly soon. I've seen suggestions that as this happens, we'll have
to do something drastic to buy us some time. Including moving the planet
to a different orbit, further from the sun, to allow life forms we know
today to continue to survive.

1B years or so.
