Imagine all the people… missing

Here’s a review in Salon (or in Washington Post) of a new book by Alan Weisman, The World Without Us. The book asks that very question what would the world look like if all 6 billion humans suddenly disappeared alien-abduction-rapture-style. This obviously eliminates the environmental impact of 6 billion corpses.

I also stumbled across this article, Imagine Earth without people, (via Kottke.org) from New Scientist that asked the very same question although the author is Bob Holmes.
