There is specific scientific evidence that forms the basis for the slides? Such as, it takes 23 years for mushrooms to grow in an untended lawn, etc.? My own feeling is that the aggressiveness of flora is waaaaaaaayyyyy undervalued. My limited experience is that grass, shrubs, trees, vines, etc., will virtually swallow that house in 20 years, to the point that you would hardly know, passing by in a car, that a house had been there.

He did speak to a range of experts from various fields on this stuff.

I'd imagine the fire would take place much sooner, while the subway flood would take a few more days. Your trees would take about 30-50 years to take root to the point where the roots break open concrete, and while you'd start seeing weeds and flowers and bushes and such crap take hold in buildings and parking lots/roads within about 5-10 years, mold and other decay wouldn't do much to the actual walls/foundations of buildings.

That is pretty interesting. Those drawings of New York were very eerie and reminded me of STALKER. But I think if we humans somehow all disappeared, whatever we did to become extinct would have probably affected allot of life. I may buy this book.

Other animals would evolve to fill the gap we left inevitably proving the art of furries prophetic. Please for the love of God don't let this happen!:eek:

Cities would take centuries to crumble and then be overgrown. Look at Mayan and Inca ruins, they're a thousand years old and in the jungles of Central and South America. And they will be there in another thousand years too.

I'm sorry, but when humans become extinct, The world will go with them, There is no point to having an Earth Without humans and God would destroy it along with the people. Sorry if that's too "religious". But BTW: those pics are awesome!
