the music is too soft and mellow for such arguably ugly insects.
they should have used a horror movie theme. or maybe just put vocal commentary instead.

#6 “if all insects on Earth disappeared, within 50 years all life on
Earth would end. If all human beings disappeared from the Earth,
within 50 years all forms of life would flourish.”

Biologist Jonas Salk

#3 Was only pointing out common knowledge, no need to go Rambo on him (or her)

#6, what #3 is talking about is that humans in general have too little knowledge about the power and responsibility they possess. Some of them even have sinister intentions with that power. For that, several species are extinct and the climatic changes are almost beyond their control. Because a few wanted easy access to resources. Like money for oil...

Long time between each party, but when they do, they do it properly!
