It would dreadfully difficult to wipe out all microbiotic life. It permeates
the earth, from a few miles up in the atmosphere to the depths of the oceans.
Once we are gone, the earth will heal itself as it has in the past and microbes
will give rise to entire new trees of life. That's the way the cookie crumbles.
We ain't nothing special.
