Storyline

Visit the ghostly villages surrounding Chernobyl (abandoned by humans after the 1986 nuclear disaster), travel to remote islands off the coast of Maine to search for abandoned towns that have vanished from view in only a few decades, then head beneath the streets of New York to see how subway tunnels may become watery canals. A visual journey, LIFE AFTER PEOPLE is a though-provoking adventure that combines movie-quality visual effects with insights with insights from experts in the fields of engineering, botany, ecology, biology, geology, climatology, and archeology to demonstrate how the very landscape of our planet will change in our absence.

How come only human disappears
4 May 2009 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Good work but relies so much on the fact that people disappear as they evaporate. Anything that can kill us till the last man shall have some effect on the environment that we live I assume. Even a deadly epidemic can not kill everyone instantly. From my point of view, they should have dwell on the possible causes of our extinction and create scenarios depending on these. If it is climate changes for example, buildings will fall before they rot because of hurricanes or what so ever.

Another point is, once a species like human disappears totally from a habitat, a lot of other species must disappear as well. As we are the main predators on the planet, without our existence, it is quite difficult to say what can survive and what can not. They tell the story in a way that nothing but people disappears. They focus so much on trees and plants. If we disappear, the bug population will explode since there will be a lot of corpse to eat. After they are done with us, they can destroy the forests. What I want to say is, we already changed the ecosystem some much. Without us, before a fair balance, another species (may be bugs) that may not be as sane as us (I mean it, we do not destroy totally) may destroy more species in a quite short time period than we did over the history of man.
