While the pyramids of Egypt could stand forever, would the structures of the modern era have the same, seemingly infinite, structural integrity? Scientists, scholars, and experts in biology, ecology, botany, engineering, archeology, and climatology offer informed opinions on how long the traces of mankind would remain, and vivid computer graphics allow us to witness the unthinkable with our own eyes.

    Feel free to pass on this

    Starts from the premise that humans miraculously vanish from the planet all at once and for no particular reason whatsoever. Not a credible starting point that taints the entire viewing.

    Is this what would happen if mankind disappeared? It makes a very strong case. We have had many discussions on this since watching it.
