How Nature Re-claims its Own When Humans Are Removed from the Eco Equation.

Nature Re-claiming its Own as Humans are Removed from the Eco Equation.

This documentary about the sudden disappearance of humans was fascinating. What an eerie beauty. I would love to walk about 150 years after such an event. I’m sure it would be a mesmerising experience. It makes me realise just how fragile we are and how nature is a very durable and patient entity. Just waiting and somehow knowing. Nature has seen it all before and can sigh with inevitability. One way or another all nature has to do, is wait.

Everywhere the absence of human beings is a breath of fresh air for most life on Earth. Whales begin to increase in numbers. Wolf packs mixing with surviving domesticated dogs. In the sea, cod numbers replenish and grow up to six feet in length.

What is so amazing, is that our buildings and cities would rapidly vanish. At first there would be catastrophic pollution as power stations went into melt down and flooded the globe with radioactivity. Huge cleansing follows as rain and weather allow the Eco system to take control. Bit by bit the human world is eroded until man’s existence is not even noticeable anymore. Wild forests and wild animals will take over and become hardened and feral.

This raw beauty is destined to return again one day. Watch YouTube documentary below:
