How Earth Will Look If Humans Are Eliminated
Life on our planet would be incredibly different if humans were to suddenly be wiped out. According to a new video, within a few hours most of the lights would turn off and within months, nuclear disasters would happen around the world.
If doomsday struck, and humans were wiped off the face of the Earth, what would happen to our planet?
According to a recent video, it won't take long for Earth to 'reset' itself - but the process would be terrifying.
Within a few hours most of the lights would turn off and within months, nuclear disasters would strike across the planet.
After thousands of years the only evidence of our existence would be in the form of stone structures like the Great Wall of China or Mount Rushmore.
'The reason is irrelevant, just imagine the results,' the narrator of the video, from viral YouTube channel '#Mind Warehouse', says.
The video was put together using footage created by National Geographic.
The video animations came from Life After People, a television series on which scientists, structural engineers, and other experts speculate about what might become of Earth should humanity instantly disappear.
A few hours after humans disappear, most of the lights around the world will shut off because most of the power stations will not be able to run.
Fossil fuels power plants would run out of fuel and solar panels would eventually get covered in dust.
The only power plants still running would be hydroelectric stations.
'On the west of the United States, the generators of Hoover Dam are activated by the water flow from Lake Meade,' the narrator says. 'Thus, it can be left unattended for several months, or even years.'
Two or three days later, most underground train systems would flood because the pumps keeping water out would stop working.
After ten days pets and farm animals - including billions of chickens and millions of cows - would die of starvation, while packs of big dogs would form to hunt down other animals.
A month later, the cooling water in nuclear power stations would have evaporated. This would lead to a series of disasters across the world, stronger than Fukushima and Chernobyl.
'But overall the planet would recover from the radioactive contamination rather fast and easily,' the video says.

Today we are presenting you a video on an unusual topic. Imagine that all people suddenly disappeared from the planet.
The reason is irrelevant, just imagine the result. Now we are going to tell what is going to happen after we are gone.
