1. I dunno--it's our environmental disasters that will

have cleared the way for their evolution. Like it took the extinction of the dinosaurs (& a whole lot of other species) to create Lebensraum for the mammals.

The two main differences with the dinosaur analogy are, first, that we will have fallen due to our own environmental impact, not requiring a meteor fall to end us, and we will have taken a lot more species with us than the meteor did.

I'm betting the cockroaches will make it, though. And God knows what they might evolve into in a few tens of millions of years.
