I don't think any of these "The Vague Society of Nebulous Meanies are going to take over the world and light up a planet" theories worry too much about practical considerations like that. It's all about rousing ill-informed, paranoiac fear, not making sense.
Do squid destroy the very planet they live on? Do they tear down natural habitats, murder each other as well as other creatures for money/sport/fun, pollute the air, destroy the ozone? Who's the dummies now?
For all we know, they do. Most animals tend to destroy the area they live in; animals in the ocean, I would venture to guess, have it a bit easier due to the medium they live in, but not through any action of their own. Do they tear down natural habitats? I honestly haven't a clue. Maybe, like bears, elephants, and anteaters, they do cause considerable damage in their quest for food. Do they kill each other for sport or pleasure? Considering their relative rareness, I sincerely doubt it, but it would surprise me at all. Many animals kill merely for the pleasure of the kill. Perhaps, like the killer whale, giant squid enjoy grasping seals and tossing them through the air several dozen feet over and over again, in a sadistic game of volleyball.
One thin I would be willing to be money on, though. Even if giant squid recognized the damage they do merely through their existance, I do not believe they either can, or even would, take steps to repair their mistakes. The only animal in the entire world that has been known to do that is the human.

No, because they lack intelligence. They cannot define sport or leisure. Aquatus is right. We are more advanced and intelligent. Squid, although considered intelligent, are not as much as humans. Your ideology of intelligence is skewed.
