Check our T2A page for transcripts, photos, and links from previous chats -- like our inaugural chat with author Alan Weisman, who answered questions about his book, "The World Without Us". The book presents a hypothetical look at what would happen to earth if humans suddenly disappeared, and how quickly nature could reclaim “civilization”.
