Do you think human beings have impacted every living organism in some way?

hell, we're fucking with the planet's climate control systems (ozone, icecaps, salinity of the oceans, etc)
everybody and everythign is under the effects of the temperature of the planet
the motions of the currents int he ocean
the weather raining down on us, etc.
so yeah, humans have had an effect on everything earthly
with humans the arguement is whether or not our impact on the planet is "Natural"

There are lots of species at the bottom of the ocean that have yet to be effected by us.
There are most likely other species of animals within the universe that have had absolutely no effect from humans.
we've been annihilating species from the oceans for theousands of years
most critters on the bottom of the ocean eat stuff that falls from somewhere in the water column
we've certainly effected everything on the planet at least indirectly
once you cause any species to go extinct you have an effect on the entirety of an ecosystem (the planet in this case) that will permeate throughout time
it's a realization that causes us to dig deep
and think of the big picture
