On one hand, this could be taken as a very depressing exercise: just how long will it take for nature to more or less return to pre-human condition were we to all disappear tomorrow.

The answer turns this into a fairly hopeful book: not very long. For most things, anyway. Plastics will be here long after any signs of us are entirely wiped from the planet. But, out cities will be gone in a geological blink of the eye: a few hundred years.

A very novel idea, but the essay jumps around more than I cared for. In the end, it is about fixing our planet. Surprise; the problem is too many humans. Oct 2009

Fascinating descriptions of some existing or abandoned locations, together with extrapolations of how things might look if we humans really mess up our planet to the extent we can no longer live on it.
