Post Human Blues

Posted on Jun 21, 2007

Scientific American has a great article highlighting Alan Weisman’s forthcoming book The World Without Us, a scientific look into a future devoid of humans. There is no reason presented for our extinction, his premise jumps right into what would occur here on Earth without us.

The article presents an interactive timeline of how New York City in particular would fare. Surprisingly, it would not take long for many remnants of human civilization to erode and disappear which leads one to wonder just how much of antiquity has not survived the passage of time.
