Alan Weisman,in his internationally acclaimed book “The World Withous Us”,describes what our planet could be like if humans were suddenly “gone”.So what would earth look like? At first glance things would be good! For one,there would be no more noise from cars,machines,and airplanes.Nights would finally be dark and reveal a starry sky.Cities would disappear.Statues and monuments would become excellent anchor points for sea life.Even when the sun would burn out,there would still be human traces.The many radio and TV waves that we have sent into space would continue wafting through the universe.
What is it about the world without us,that so fascinates people?Perhaps it is the underlying question:What will happen to our planet? Will some trace of our civilization remain? Will anyone survive?
