Assuming that humans can make choices, I would rephrase the quote: "Humans are evolution's greatest risk." Humans can destroy the marvelous creative diversity that have come from the amazing process of evolution. Or humans can make space for this wonderful activity to continue into the coming centuries. With the direction humankind is taking, we may be approaching a point in the road where no choices in direction present themselves to us.
