Life After People

Thanks to Bro Taylor for this one.

The History Channel ran a special called “Life After People“, about- surprisingly enough- life after people. He described it as “like ‘I Am Legend’ but not rubbish.”

What would happen if we all disappeared? How long would it be before animals moved back into the cities? how long would electricity keep being generated? Would buildings crumble?

It helps us realise that we are never in a position to ‘save the world’ – only life as we know it. The world will be fine long after we are gone. Why not visit their microsite and see if you would survive?
