I'm worried about the extinction of one species.Homo sapiens.

He also doesn't post on TR, which is honestly a huge productivity sink in the Bilirubin lab.
I think the underlying problem here is that you've got a person whose research has been "successful" for some definition of success because he treats every species as interchangeable parts that passively coast along subject to random extinctions. As soon as you take a more sophisticated approach, his work falls apart. So of course he thinks extinction doesn't matter, because in the scale he works, it doesn't.
