Indeed it could... but then again, the earth is just as capable of wiping us out too.

Actually, at this point we're approaching the level of power where we could, in fact, destroy the entire planet.  Not just life on it, the whole thing.  I can't imagine the nations of the world pooling their resources to blow up the world, though.

I doubt it. I mean, we could majorly screw it up, I'm sure. But I don't think we could totally obliterate it.

You cause a big enough explosion deep enough down and the shockwaves could actually cause the planet to fall apart.  We don't have the technology now, but we're getting pretty close.

Still, when most people say "save the Earth" they typically don't mean the dirt and rocks.

It's all important. The dirt is sort of vital.

I agree our earth is in huge troubel. We need to get off oil before we hit the peack of it's use. Which I think we may have already hit consdring the pirce of oli right now although I guss it's also part of all the conflict that going on in the middle east.  But the sooner we can get of oil the better. The longer we use the harder it will be to stop useing it. It's like a drug.
