The World Without Us by Alan Weisman

World.jpg

Alan Weisman examines the impact of humans on the Earth by speculating on what would happen if people suddenly vanished. Discussions with scientists, engineers and other experts, and exploring what happened to cities no longer existing shows him how asphalt jungles would turn to real jungles. While most wild animal species population would recover, find out how our pets, farm animals and crops would fare in a new world order. If the earth reverts back to its pre-human past, could radio and TV broadcast waves traveling through space be the last signs of us? Check catalog for availability.
