What would a world without people be like? Considering the amount of pollution the human race has caused, polluting the oceans, filling the air with greenhouse gases, mass extinctions, we really should wonder, how planet earth would deal with the â€œmessâ€ we leave behind should we all suddenly disappear. Would our concret jungle cities crumble to dust and revert to Gardens of Eden? Would the overfished seas fill with fish again? In fact Iâ€™m wondering would there be scenes like in â€œI am legend?â€ How long would it take for our traces to vanish? And if our planet could deal with all the harm we are causing it, shouldnâ€™t we be in awe and appreciate it more and not try to slowly destroy it?
