It's scary to think that

It's scary to think that humankind may have outsmarted itself at last. What if we have created a disaster that is too big for us to fix? We have done years of research and spent billions of dollars to learn how to drill further and deeper, but we haven't spent a fraction of that learning how to fix a disaster. What if it's not fixable?
