    quite likely our culture will certainly vanish and possibly our entire species.

    The planet itself will be fine. We aren't even a cancer on the planet. More like a head cold. After a brief (for a planet) fever everything will be fine. What's a quarter million years for a planet? Nothing. As you say, species will evolve, niches will be filled.

    I'm thinking octopus. They're smart as hell, very adaptable, and their habitat won't be nearly as affected by climate change as the land. Yet the undersea world will change enough that there will be some evolutionary pressure that wasn't there before.

    Oh! Hey, welcome back. You were missed.
