I don't know about the cosmos (I'm leaving philosophy out of this, strictly science). Thus from an ecological standpoint, it is worse, because organisms and/or species are simply not surviving for their survival. An eco-system is a fine balance with many players. And, the state of one player, can and do, throw off the greater scheme. Domino effect. And, if the rate is faster than the adaptability of the environment, then, we're introducing 'chaos'/imbalance, faster than it can keep up....which doesn't only have commentary for the animals, but, for humans who are using/relying on the enviornment to give them what they want (the reason for the human activity in the first place).If those organisms cant keep up with the rate of change and instability introduced by humans, than they lose. This is not worse from a cosmic standpoint, nor is it better.
