“The World Without Us” by Alan Weisman.

What if we all just up and vanished one day?  Doesn’t matter how, you can pick your poison – nuclear holocaust, Captain Trips, Rapture (nyuk, nyuk) – it’s ballgame for homo sapiens.  How would the Earth begin to shake off the “Humanity Hangover”?  Here’s a taste: Lead deposited in the soil from 20th century auto emissions finally dissipates at the 35,000 year mark.  Buy the book here.
