  1. Sorry but this video is really make me realized human beings are not good for the earth . We are so over populated , but we are trying to control population about another .

  2. This reminds me of when I worked at this big cement plant which closed suddenly in 2008 during the economic meltdown and all the workers pretty much had to all leave in one day and they locked it up. 10 years later when I worked there they were opening one silo for storage but the plant itself hadn’t been touched in a decade. You could walk back there and see trees and vegetation growing through everywhere, everything once of color had turned grey and rusted, things people had been using were just left in the same place they’d been put down…like the whole place had been frozen in time.
