- The Once and Future World: Nature As It Was, As It Is, As It Could Be by J.B. MacKinnon
- The World Without Us by Alan Weisman
The author examines some interesting current planetary phenomena, such as bird sanctuaries created in areas peppered with land mines—the birds are too light to set them off. Potential scenarios are also envisioned, such as future devastation of nuclear weapons and power plants, with or without human supervision. This information should be taught to grade school children.
