The World Without Us

von Suelzer (Veröffentlicht von WorldCat-Nutzern/innen 2008-11-20) Sehr gut Permalink

After reading this book, it is hard to look at the world around me quite the same.  The book questions what would happen if humans would totally disappear off the face of the earth. How long would it take for buildings, roads, dams- anything man made- to crumble and fall apart? One tends to think...

    schema:description "Journalist Weisman offers an original approach to questions of humanity's impact on the planet. Drawing on the expertise of engineers, atmospheric scientists, art conservators, zoologists, oil refiners, marine biologists, astrophysicists, religious leaders, and paleontologists, he illustrates what the planet might be like today if humans disappeared. He explains how our massive infrastructure would collapse and finally vanish without human presence; which everyday items may become immortalized as fossils; how copper pipes and wiring would be crushed into mere seams of reddish rock; why some of our earliest buildings might be the last architecture left; and how plastic, bronze sculpture, radio waves, and some man-made molecules may be our most lasting gifts to the universe. As he shows which human devastations are indelible, and which examples of our highest art and culture would endure longest, Weisman's narrative ultimately drives toward a radical but persuasive solution that needn't depend on our demise.--From publisher description."@en ;
