The World Without Us - Alan Weisman Delightfully misanthropic.Full of interesting information about the environment and a bit about ecosystems and things, but typically for me I found the human stuff the most interesting. Did you know the US Energy Department had to come up with a way of informing people ten thousand years from now that Here Be Buried Nuclear Waste? They had to take into account language evolution and stuff! And that there's giant (like, miles across) salt formations under Houston that have been hollowed out by the gas industry? And that it will take Mt. Rushmore more than 7 million years to erode?
