    There’s somethings in power plants which are supposed to be guarded or it would be end of the world but there would be no one to guard it.
    So it would be like every nuclear bomb exploding or the gases from the power plants and also no one can work the nuclear power plants so lots of things will go wrong.

    Without us the world would go back to a dark, kill or be killed till nothing is left era. And many creatures who depend on us would die. Many meteors would hit Earth and Earth would be unhabitable. So stop saying that you are terrible because mother nature was ready many, many, dark, bad years ago.

    But if you do, then that's just stupid. We made the Earth brighter and let's all admit it, the world is dark.

    A world without humans would be very slow. I mean we’ve found technology, we’ve found cures to many diseases, we’ve saved animals. But then again, such thing as pollution would not exist. Humans have done so much good to the world, but it is beaten by the bad we have caused.

    Realize the existence of humans after we are gone (which most likely will happen whether it is the inhabitable earth surface caused by the heating of the sun or some other cause) will just be a small part of the history of the universe. When you think of it like this, or at least I do, I think humans don’t even matter. We are just simply a creature of destruction that has strived on the earth the past whatever years. Look up from your phone or device and really think about this. Think about how vast the universe is and how your just simply a little human walking around. Think about making a difference. Let’s stop human destruction and start doing things for the better of the earth and the universe as we know it.

    Holy crap, this sounds so much better. I wish I lived the real life survival experience with no other humans, having threats such as weather, other animals, being exposed to anything, looking at the sky and feeling so free... and travelling with a boat on water, sleeping on your small boat... while the calming water sounds will do their best to make you sleep... Waking up, finding many new locations, making a map of what you think the world is like.. This is some deep shit.

      You might consider watching the series "Life after people" from 2008/09 about exactly this topic. There are also have been spin-offs and stuff afterwards, but that's more or less "the original". But as a mobie it would probably be interesting as well.

    If humans dissapeared, squids, octos, and other sea creatures would evolve into humanoids. Squids and octos would copy our culture, and participate in a practice called terf war where you spread paint.
