If we stopped being here

Welcome to Planet Earth: Population 0.

This is what our world would look like without people.

The images were created to illustrate what would happen if human life ceased tomorrow, if, for whatever reason, mankind was obliterated.

The question it raises is: how long would the remnants of our civilisation remain? What would remain of our civilisation? The answer, astonishingly, is: almost nothing.

Are you sure thats the right answer? :P

I saw this documentary, quite interesting.
The idea that most dogs wouldnt survive and many would die a horrific death locked into their owners houses was much more frightening then the idea of humanity dissapearing.

It would be horrible to see many historical buildings and such dissapear, but besides that a world without humans sounds like a great place to go on holiday to.
