Life After People

The History Channel has a web site to complement their special, Life After People. It asks a simple question: what would happen if all humans disappeared from the Earth?

You can watch video that explores whether a plague could kill us all, and what would happen to the (non-human) animals, our buildings, and the rest of the Earth, if it did. There's even a Survival Guide that should come in handy if you are the lone survivor. Even better, print it out now, in case the power fails . . .

This is the kind of stuff I wanted to see in Life After People. I couldn't get past the premise of suddenly we're all miraculously gone and got very irritated with the whole thing. I kept asking "would that happen if a supervolcano erupted and killed us all How about an asteroid?"Etc, etc.
