How would the earth fair if man disappeared completely from the earth?

I think about the number of resources we've use daily or have used in the past, all the structures and non-natural toxic chemicals we've created, and definitely lots of damage in the plant and animal kingdoms by moving them to places they were not native or killing them off. And how many people are here on this planet could change the face of the earth through nuclear weapons is a scary thought. And we've only been here a very very small amount of time relative the the age of the planet and the age of life here.

So today I came upon an article that figures out just what WOULD happen if we just left or disappeared suddenly.

Imagine the Earth Without People

And it makes me feel better about drinking my Dr Pepper, turning on the light, and having a chicken sandwich for lunch.

Oh yeah I've read that before. I think it was in some magazine which is where I heard about it first. Maybe in Maxim?

One of my friends pointed me to this site:

You'd probably find it as cool as I have.
