*** But, his reason for going forward in time and then back was to defeat the Uber-Morlock. He would then rescue his friend, escape and destroy the Morlock colony. No matter what the future looked like, his mind was already made up. In other words, the future he saw before going back and turning his time machine into a bomb was a future without him. He can't change his own personal past (saving Emma). But, like in Back to the Future, his future hasn't been written yet, so he make his future whatever he wants to make it.

Even with a time machine, he still can't predict his own future or change his own past.

** Technically, we don't know that he prevented the Skull-tunnels-everywhere future. Perhaps that will still happen due to some remnant Morlocks; however, that doesn't mean pure DownerEnding because he still managed to save the Eloi in that particular context.

Plus, with that particular colony gone and the Eloi no longer being manipulated, there's a chance for them to setup their own defenses and fight off any incursions.

** We only see one attempt to save Emma. How many times did Alex try to save her before he realized that there was no saving her, and needed to find out why?

**** Yes but as demonstrated in Fantastic Four: The End if he rescued his wife BUT left his past self believing her dead he'd still build the time machine, rescue her, but avoid the paradox completely.

***** It still creates the exact same sort of paradox that saving Emma would have. By destroying the Morlocks he erases his reasons for destroying the Morlocks, just like how saving Emma would have erased his reason for saving Emma.

** He can't go back and save his girlfriend because then he'd have no reason to go back and save her. Then at the end of the film he goes to a bad future, then goes back in time and prevents it which he can do because... ?

** He couldn't save his girlfriend because then he would be creating a paradox, however he can influence the future because he's from the past and the time machine itself gives him greater insight on what will happen as well as how to stop and/or change it.

**** He wiped out the Morlock colony that lost the Uber-Morlock that he killed. The others have their own Ubers, so they won't exhaust the food. Simple.
