On this episode of The Reality Report, Alan Weisman talks about his book "The World Without Us," a fascinating study of what would happen to our built infrastructure and the natural world were humans to vanish. Though the book's scenario is far fetched, it works as a teaching device. It gives one a sense of the vulnerabilities we face with resource constraints as we may find it difficult to maintain what was built with fossil energy and rich mineral ores.

Jason Bradford hosts The Reality Report, broadcast on KZYX&Z in Mendocino County, CA.
