Off Duty X

You don't expect me to blog fully on the day before Christmas, do you? In the meantime, then, content yourself with the infographic depicted above, which tells us how nature would reclaim the Earth if humans were to suddenly disappear from the planet. (The original source for the graphic was this October 2006 post from Boing Boing, which in turn cited a post from Treehugger, which no longer exists). The chart in question is very similar to the relatively new tome, The World Without Us, by Alan Weisman, who purports to tell that tale as well.

In sum, Excellent Christmas time reading.

Treehugger exists, it is the post that's gone.
