Cockroaches will start to evolve, discover writing and science. Built cars and airplanes, and eventually discover Bug sprays of mass destruction. Then they'll have world wars until some roach decides to drop a 1000 megaton "Raid" bomb. Which will then give the parrots a chance to evolve....etc.

It would be better overall. It'd take animals a while to recover from our intrusion but I prefer that they use the earth for what it provides- not what WE provide.

And I am aware that pandas and pugs die on that list.

I feel like those nuclear power plants might become a problem without humans to maintain them.

There was a whole mini-series documentary about the idea that either the History or Discovery channel did about 6 or 7? years ago. It covered a pretty good list of effects, I think this was it. http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x1g5g09_life-after-people-episode-1-life-after-people-discovery-history-science-documentary_tv
I remember my middle school science teacher making us do a report on it.


That sounds very interesting, although I lost all my credibility on the History channel.

Just my own speculation- not exactly a subject I'll be strong with, but here goes-

Humans control things such as nuclear power plants, and there could be mighty problems if nobody was doing that.
Basically every animal alive that lives within human facilities or homes (Domesticated or not, Zoos, Pets, Farms, etc etc etc) would all die.
And anything man-made that is presently running will continue doing so, assuming it works without manpower.



Pretty good guess, people forget that a large number of animals depend on humans to survive and we already did big damage to Earth's nature, not to talk about the danger nuclear power plants represent.

If humans disappeared the world would be much better off. Its a well known fact that global warming is due to humans (and when I say global warming I mean the insane increase of global warming. Not the naturally occurring global warming) and not to mention that we destroy forests and take land that animals live on as our own property. There is no way to deny that humans are ruining the world. But what are you gonna do? Humans aren't ever going to completely surrender to the fact that they're ruining the planet and try to start fixing it.

Yea they'd be a problem in the short term, but nature has a funny way of being able to live through the hardest times. After a while the nature around the area would heal and everything would go back to its normal rhythm.

This thread reminds me of that History Channel documentary called "Life After People". Pretty interesting what happens after humanity cease to exist.

I suppose it would revert back to the way it used to be before mankind existed. A peaceful planet with an abundance of life.

Nature as it should be.

The earth only exits for the benefit humanity, when our time is over, the earth's will be too.

There are more forests in America today then when the pilgrims arrived. Only industrialized nations have the money and time to care.

Global warming is a fact; human caused - very much debatable; global temperatures have stagnated for over a decade and most of the warming occurred BEFORE the car. Back when they had horses, wet poop in the winter and dusty poop in the summer was a real problem. Warming is actually good not bad for the earth ...and humans. It would be great if we could start farming on Greenland ...again.

In 2006 All Gore predicted the "scorching" of the earth ...we have less than a year to go according to his prediction, so stock up on bottled water!

The world would probably live a lot longer. The existence of us humans is a pollution to this planet.
