If 99% of all humans were gone, how would things be different?
The premise is that 99% of humans are gone. Whether it was from volcanic activity, or disease, rapture or alien abduction isn’t material. They’re gone; what’s going to be different?
Some things are obvious like less pollution. Some are subtle like the decrease in market size making R&D expenditures on new products less cost effective. No iPhones for these people.
Would it change the way we educate? Medicine? Travel?
