    Yeah, what you ve heard about this book is true It really is very good, very scary, very depressing AND it s written entirely in Spurdlish, a language I just made up that consists only of the letter t If it only enabled fire ants to slowly liquify Dick Cheney, it would be perfect.Okay, I m kidding about the Spurdlish, but, yeah, great book Weisman doesn t just speculate on what happens to your house or the NYC subways or the pyramids once we ve all been raptured off to Heaven Hint That Yeah, what you ve heard about this book is true It really is very goo...

    I enjoyed the premise, but the execution was a snoozer I m not sure if it was the author s soporific style, or that I was let down by his overly repetitive rundown on floral succession asparagus and trumpet vine take hold as dingleberries and snorfle weed provide shade Over and over it felt like the author was attempting to display the fact that he did thorough investigation with environmental biologists and was flexing his bio street cred, After the first 4 ...

    In The World Without Us, Alan Weisman attempts to answer the question of what would happen to the earth if, for whatever reason, humans were to completely disappear tomorrow While it s a fascinating premise, one that Weisman undoubtedly put a lot of time and effort into, the execution falters Inevitably, it s hard to stretch what was initially a short essay into a full book, but that s how The World Without Us got going Structurally, the book is broken down into four parts with chapters discu In The World Without Us, Alan Weisman attempts to answer the question of what would happen to the earth if, for whatever reason, humans were to completely disappear tomorrow While it s a fascinating premise, one that Weisman undoubtedly put a lot of time and effort into, the execution falters Inevitably, it s hard to stretch what was initially a short essay into a full book, but that s how The World Without Us got going Structurally, the book is broken down into four parts with chapters discussing what would happen to the earth, both in the manmade and in what man has altered in nature, including cities, power plants, nukes, art, farmland, bacteria, animals and creatures of the ocean In reading this book it s clear that Weisman realized that, a that it s st...

    Well written and researched exploration of the premise of how the world would change if humans suddenly disappeared from the earth This ostensible absurd premise turns out to be a very useful lens to view many important environmental and ecological issues Several chapters, such as those on plastics and nuclear waste, are distressing as their...

    This book is a tour de force of what ifs based on scientific facts mixed with scientific guesses The premise is unusual..what if humans suddenly were no longer on the earth Not dead by plague, war, or natural disaster but simply disappearing tomorrow, leaving no bodies But what humans leave behind will change the Earth as we know it, forever.Environmentalist have been fighting battles to save the planet for years but the damage has partially been done Huge whirlpools of garbage, miles w This book is a tour de force of what ifs based on scientific facts mixed with scientific guesses The premise is unusual..what if humans suddenly were no longer on the earth Not dead by plague, war, or natural disaster but simply disappearing tomorrow, leaving no bodies But what humans leave behind will change the Earth as we know it, forever.Environmentalist have been fighting battles to save the planet for years but the damage has partially been done Huge whirlpools of garbage, miles wide, already dot both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans and the majority of the material in those floating garbage dumps is plastic based The author gives quite a bit of information about what effect non biodegradables will have on every thing from plant life to animal life remember, only humans have disappeared.The second huge consequence of human progress will be the nuclear missiles, power plants, and nuclear waste that remains with no one left to regulate i...
