Not dead, simply gone, just like that. How would suburban pets fare without people to feed them? How would the forests, the oceans and the wildlife react if there was suddenly an end to all the hunting, fishing and farming?

How long would the skyscrapers and houses last if they were abandoned? Aftermath: Population Zero - The World without HumansThis is a fascinating documentary. It's quite long, but extremely interesting. What would happen if, tomorrow, every single person on Earth simply disappeared? “Aftermath” is the astounding story of a world that humans will never see. The two-hour special examines the impact of human beings on this planet by proposing what the Earth might be like without people.
There's a lot of studies into radiation uptake going on there - they've spotted that DNA contains lots of redundant error correction built in so animals can live in places that were considered uninhabitable…

Sorry, I don't mean to pour cold water on you!
yes the earth would recover within 20 years and precede on without us ,,,, maybe the dinosaurs would return after 20 million years - i speak as an ecologist
That would put a whe new spin on the expression 'the chickens would come home to roost'.They say the chicken is the nearest relative to T Rex
Have you seen that information that says something like: The T Rex is closer in time to the iPhone than to the Stegosaurus.
Something like that! Mind blowing.
I expect it's online somewhere. But that is mind boggling isn't it.
Especially if you imagine a T Rex with a giant iPhone
Oh yes. No. 15. Also the one about Cleopatra is unbelievable!
