Would the earth survive without us? If every human suddenly vanished, left the planet or were wiped out (cheery thought) what would happen to the planet?
A video has been produced that illustrates what they think would happen, and the earth does pretty well without us to be fair.
It is a pretty harsh start with domesticated animals passing away but things do improve. Our towns and cities will become covered in foliage and vegetation. Buildings will corrode and collapse.

Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
