What would happen to Earth if humans vanished? Expanding on a Discover Magazine piece selected for The Best American Science Writing 2006, Alan Weisman’s The World Without Us is a thought experiment that explores how the rest of nature would respond if it were suddenly relieved of the relentless pressures heaped on it by humans. Weisman has drawn on the expertise of scientists, engineers, art conservators, miners, oil drillers, and religious leaders to examine our fleeting yet indelible human legacy on Earth. Presented by the Town Hall Center for Civic Life with University Book Store.
