LIFE AFTER PEOPLE
What would happen to planet Earth if the human race suddenly disappeared forever?

ENCORE presentation Wednesday January 23rd at 8pm/7C

The special doesn't speculate how we died off but the above LIFE AFTER PEOPLE website does offer some scenarios. The most intriguing was that eventually our DNA will just wear out (but that won't happen for at least a thousand generations).

I was surprised to hear that Manhattan Island (the Manhattan) 400 years ago had as many as 40 streams - and a pond! Hard to imagine that today.

I don't want to give away the details but it looks like if you're the last man standing, living near the Hoover Dam or Las Vegas is your safer bet. ;-)

This special does inadvertently give a knockout blow to global warming. No matter what we do, it isn't meant to last forever. Eventually nature will take over.
