O knihe

In a world without us, what traces of us would linger, and which would disappear? Weisman writes about which objects from today will vanish; which will become relics and fossils; how our pipes, wires, and cables will be pulverized into an unusual (but mere) line of red rock; why some museums and churches might be the last human creations standing; and how plastic, cast-iron, and radio waves may be our most lasting gifts to the planet. But of our world currently fare The World Without Us is also about how parts without a human presence (Chernobyl; a Polish old-growth forest; the Korean DMZ) and it looks at the human legacy on Earth, whether fleeting or indelible. It's narrative nonfiction at its finest, taking on an irresistable concept with gravity and a highly-readable touch.
