I think humans are the most dominant force on the planet because as a species we can change the fate and behavior of almost all other species in the world through our changes to the climate etc..

Humans are definitely the dominant force of change because without something such as the Paris Agreement, run by humans, the world would have no real gathering and similar beliefs of climate change.

Yeah, if some cursorial lanky land-chimps can somehow take on the entire clade of the physically largest animals of all time and win by the late 1800's, by now they would easily have far more capabilities.
