FREE DOWNLOAD The World Without Us 108 Without Us reveals how just days after humans disappear floods in New York's subways would start eroding the city's foundations and how as the world's cities crumble asphalt jungles would give way to real ones It describes the distinct ways that organic and chemically treated farms would revert to wild how billions birds would flourish and how cockroaches in unheated cities would perish without us Drawing on the expertise of engineers atmospheric scientists art conservators zoologists oil refiners marine biologists astrophysicists religious leaders from rabbis to the Dalai Lama and paleontologists who describe a prehuman world inhabited by megafauna like giant sloths that stood tal. 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 times the remaining 18 were overkillI did learn that there s a voluntary human extinction movement something I found interesting and hadn t heard of before Of course he only devoted 1 paragraph of the book to something that was actually novel and interesting I also enjoyed the exploration of human works in a human less scenario what would happen to subways oil wells nuclear power plants statues domestic farms dams etc but felt that the author took few risks For example he might have investigated what the probabilities were for a human extinction scenario I understand that that may not have been crucial to his discussion of a world already without humans but without discussing what would bring about that scenario the book is little than one of those semi drunk what if imagination games you play while sitting at a bar If you were trapped on a deserted island To say the book ended with a whimper would be an understatement It felt like he was just tired of writing or that his editor said he needed to put the thing to bed Either way it was mildly entertaining and mildly educational meaning it was also mildly a waste of time
