Life After People – The History Channel
While flipping through channels today, I noticed a miniseries by The History Channel called “Life After People.” They had been running some ads over the past several weeks with an interesting line that went something like this… Welcome to Earth: Population 0.
It intrigued me and so I flipped to it. After just a few minutes into it, I realized that the show wasn’t all scientific, but was almost all political. And it was just a human race bash. I didn’t watch much, but the 10 minutes I did watch were rather disappointing and more to the point — disturbing.
What is with these people who believe that the human race has no right to be on this planet?!?! I understand the concept of taking care of the environment. I’m all for that. I support environmental awareness (although I should probably do a better job of it). But why is it that we can’t co-exist with mother nature? Are we not part of this ecosystem? Much of the talk in the show was about how if the humans were not around how well the environment would do. Of all the species on this planet, why are we the ones who don’t belong?
To be fare, I didn’t watch the whole thing and it’s very possible that the show is well done. I just was disappointed with what little I saw.
