Aftermath Format Speculative fiction, Science fiction Created by Rob Minkoff Written by Warren Davis II Michael Tupy Narrated by Mike McCurlie Country of origin  Canada No. of episodes 4 Broadcast Original channel National Geographic Original airing 2010 External links Website Aftermath is a four-part 2010 series created by History Television Canadian station. It also aired in the United States on the National Geographic Channel. It was produced by Cream Productions. It consists of a series of "experiments" looking at what would happen if planetary conditions changed drastically, within our lifetime. It is a follow-up to the TV special Aftermath: Population Zero The 2010 series was nominated for a 2010 Gemini award for best documentary.[1] Contents 1 Episodes 1.1 When the Earth Stops Spinning 1.2 World Without Oil 1.3 Red Giant 1.4 Population Overload 1.5 The World After Humans 2 References 3 See also 4 External links Episodes When the Earth Stops Spinning The spin of the Earth starts slowing down dramatically. It is estimated Earth would stop spinning in little as 5 years. The first effect is the isolation between the Global Positioning System satellites and ground-based atomic clocks. Then the all-day, all-night stock markets crash because the day is longer than 24-hours. As times goes on the oceanic bulge of water at the Equator moves northward and southward. The water floods Russia, Canada and Antarctica. The atmosphere, once shaking solar heat out over the world and shifting air, stops and whirls to the Poles. The air starts to thin at the Equator. People have to migrate to more northerly and southerly cities, in order to keep up with denser air. There is a higher risk of ultraviolet radiation as the electromagnetic field weakens because of the slowing inner core. The slowing Earth causes friction between the crust, the inner and outer cores creating tremendous earthquakes.[2][3] Humans and other animals start suffering from sleep fatigue as their bodies cannot properly work in a day longer than 60 hours. The new oceans at the poles start flooding most of North America and Mediterranean Europe around this time. As the oceans have moved to the Poles, the sea-bed dries out, revealing new land. Eventually, the Earth stops altogether with one side to the sun, and one face in ice-bound darkness. There are now one ocean in the north, one in the south and the girdle of land around the equator. World Without Oil In the first few minutes of approximately one hundred thousand billion barrels of under-ground oil vanishing, alarms in oil rigs sound as pipe pressure plummets. One day after oil, asphalt, diesel, petrol and tar supplies become limited. This causes $2 trillion of stock to become worthless. Oil-workers are sacked . Consumers rush to petrol stations to fill their cars up for the last time. Oil tankers are called back to their countries of origin to save spending national reserves of oil. Every mode of inter-national transport is now grounded. However, steel, food, medical supplies and rubbish are not being moved. Power-stations start running out of diesel. Power cuts start spreading across the world. 5 days after oil. Martial law is declared to stop rioting and looting. Unemployment rises to 30%. Farm animals die due to lack of food. Coal power stations face shortages of coal. 30 days after oil. Passenger trains are running on oil rations and the roads are empty of cars. Governments decide to start a program of biofuel planting. 5 months after oil, Chrysler, General Motors and Ford are taken over by the American government. Famine and drug-resistant infections threatens death and migration as food shipments come every second day. Emergency vehicles are still getting oil rations. This inspires citizens to tinker with chemicals to get biofuel. Governments start to wonder if they should plant crops for food or fuel. They later abandon biofuel planting altogether. 1 year after oil. Emergency vehicles start to be run either by lithium battery or biofuel. The price of lithium then shoots up. Populations of wild animals bounce quickly back. People resort to growing their own food and keeping livestock. 10 years after oil, satellites burn up in the atmosphere as parts are not being replaced. Electronic equipment is scavenged for precious metals as people start recycling on a huge scale. Algae is used as a bio-fuel. Lorries deliver supplies to hospitals. 40 years after oil, skies are much clearer and cleaner as pollutants are washed out. Aeroplanes, trains and ships now run on biofuel. Lithium battery cars are expensive. People only grow what they need. New towns grow along railway points. A world trade based on biofuel and lithium is now growing.[4][5] Red Giant Swallowed by the Sun[6][7] The sun expands to its red giant phase. If the sun aged millions of years overnight, the average global temperature would go up by 36 degrees Fahrenheit. In Greenland and Antarctica, snow and ice would begin to melt. Sea levels around the world would rise by more than 200 feet, submerging coastal cities. Regular temperatures this hot, around 130 degrees, are hard for us to handle. If our bodies get just 6 or 7 degrees hotter than normal for an extended period of time, we can suffer permanent injury or death. At 212 degrees, we can't survive. The heat, hot enough to boil water, would blind and suffocate us. The magnetosphere, an invisible field circling our planet that protects us from blasts of solar radiation, would begin to weaken. The only place humans could survive is underground, but the underground is also hot, so humans turn to wearing spacesuits. At 300 degrees, water would begin to evaporate much faster than it does today. The sun would literally boil water off our Earth. Animals that breathe could not survive these temperatures. Even hardy creatures like cockroaches, which lack lungs, couldn't survive. The oxygen levels are so low that fires don't start and the clouds don't rain. At 700 degrees, all human life on Earth would be finished. We couldn't even survive underground. Oceans would become deserts. Cement deteriorates, resulting in collapsing buildings. What is left burns, because oxygen levels shoot back up. The planet would start turning red at 2,400 degrees as the iron in Earth's crust begins to rust. As the sun expands on its way to becoming a Red Giant, its massive outer edges would begin to slow the Earth’s orbit. Our planet, now a fireball, burning up like a meteorite, would be swallowed by the sun. History Television title for this show is "Red Giant", the National Geographic Channel title for it is "Swallowed by the Sun". Population Overload This section requires expansion. Overnight, the population of the earth doubles, from about 7 billion to nearly 14 billion.[8][9] The governments of the world attempt to cope by ordering the construction of gigantic highrise apartment complexes, but in the meantime, Emergency rationing becomes commonplace. Also, food and water resources are becoming strained as countries struggle to support the doubled population Eventually the complexes prove to be too little, so a mass migration occurs as people become desperate for water. Over the years, a population crash occurs. The World After Humans Population Zero[10][11] Main article: Aftermath: Population Zero The special that started it all. It documents what happens if all humans suddenly disappeared from the planet. The History Television title for this show is "The World After Humans", the National Geographic Channel title for it is "Population Zero".
