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 . . .
