Earth is a closed system and therefore, all of its life is interdependent, relying upon each other as resources.The more biologically diverse the Earth is, the better the chance all species will have for survival. Humans abuse much of the Earth's resources in order to achieve economic success. However, this success comes at the expense of humanity's future. The resources on Earth have the potential to sustain life indefinitely, if used with caution. However, when exploited, the resources can be lost forever.
