Watch this amazing demonstration of what will happen to your house over the next 500 years when left to the forces of Mother Nature. Learn more about the post-human Earth in THE WORLD WITHOUT US, by Alan Weisman.
Listen to this audiobook excerpt from Alan Weisman's book The World Without Us. If human beings disappeared instantaneously from the Earth, what would happen? How would the planet reclaim its surface? What creatures would emerge from the dark and swarm? How would our treasured structures--our tunnels, our bridges, our homes, our monuments--survive the unmitigated impact of a planet without our intervention?
