Very cool. Not entirely dissimilar to a doc watched last week on how Chernobyl has become mad crazy overgrown with plant life and oodles of animals, from rodents (reduced in number without our scraps) to feral felines to more traditional forest creatures like bears and wolves and caribou. While the radiation is hardly good for them, they're still reproducing and doing what animals do -- the relatively short lifespan of any wild creature means that most avoid dying of the cancers and such that one might expect them to develop.

The world will do just fine without us.
