How Should Calamity Survivors Govern?

Lawrence L. Lapin

Twitter: @LarryLLapin

Maritime law gives ship captains absolute power while at sea. Should that set a precedent for governance after a calamity leaves just a handful of survivors? Or, would it be better for democratic principles to apply? These questions would be especially critical when, unlike a ship voyage, there is no society to which they might return.

My story involves such a dilemma after the planet is devastated by a monster meteor. Life-and-death issues bring about working arrangements for judging capital crimes. Ongoing conflict resolution is a major theme in the stories told in my Adam’s Chronicles series.

The epic survival tale begins, as Book I of Adam’s Chronicles tells of the world facing pending impact by a gigantic meteor. Adam Boatwright faces his greatest challenge: preparing for the collision and dealing with the aftermath of the massive calamity.

When all hope of saving the planet is lost, the rescuers hole up in a deep cavern to wait out the catastrophe. Their story deals with worthiness of the human race, family planning, reproductive politics, planned mutations, cloning, animal rights, immortality, sexual preferences, and what life to restore. They encounter betrayal, career crises, shattered dreams, sacrifice, and renewal.

The common thread of this book is science, discussed in ordinary language. Subjects include controlled evolution, intelligence enhancements, non-cryogenic embryo storage, expanded animal-human communications, and prolonged cessation of the aging process.

Underground Refuge as Both “Ark” and “Lifeboat”

Lawrence L. Lapin

Twitter: @LarryLLapin

There would be limited space in any refuge from a giant meteor. The survivors could not save their family and friends. They would be lucky to save themselves. The life restorers would have to lie a lot.

The emerging superhero in Adam’s Caverns lies to the American president and anybody else that might jeopardize his mission. Imagine a hundred thousand desperate people trying to get into the safe place. Its existence would be a secret greater than the Manhattan Project for the first atomic bomb, which coincidentally was developed a few miles away from the selected refuge. Adam’s cause is a noble one. Nobody would fault him for his deceptions.

How to Survive Years in Antarctica

 Lawrence L. Lapin

Twitter: @LarryLLapin

Put yourselves in the shoes of a person waiting for our planet to be devastated by a big meteor. One place where he or she might survive would be an Antarctic research station. Such places are well protected from the cold, though even more extreme temperatures would prevail after the impact. Polar research stations are well provisioned to support dozens of summer visitors. You could live for a long time as a squatter there.

If you could even get to Antarctica during the confusion that would reign all over the world, you could live in comfort until it was safe to leave your shelter to recolonize a habitable region.

That is exactly what one group of survivors do in my book. Details of their story are given in  Adam’s Caverns.

Could a Person Survive a Great Meteor?

Lawrence L. Lapin

Twitter: @LarryLLapin

I know this is discomforting, but once more imagine our planet being hit by a giant meteor. Anyone within a few hundred miles of the impact would be burned in a massive firestorm. Most coast dwellers would be swept away by gigantic tsunamis. The remaining victims would starve or freeze as the planet goes dark under clouds of ash and ejecta. The last people would be opportunists who would eat anything, including human flesh. Only the lucky few who take safe refuge would survive more than a few months.

That’s a pretty horrible prospect. This is a sort of worst-case scenario, save for the really big collision believed to have created the Moon.

Why would anyone write about those horrors? Actually, I only hint at what could happen to over 99.9999 percent of people. The real story tells how a few surviving individuals can accomplish so much. It is an uplifting tale, according to those who have read stories in the Adam’s Chronicles series.

Tsunamis after a Giant Meteor Collision

Lawrence L. Lapin

Twitter: @LarryLLapin

If you happen to live near a coast line when a giant meteor crashes into the planet, you likely would not survive. Waves might be a hundred times bigger than those that killed 50,000 Japanese. More people might die from tsunamis than burn in the firestorms. Nearly everybody will perish from the famines and darkness that follow.

Why would I write about such awful things? I really don’t. Instead I focus on the aftermath, when it could be possible to rejuvenate Earth. Manmade catastrophes are coming if we don’t stop ruining our planet, though they will happen more slowly than a meteor’s. I hope people will soon come to their senses.

That’s the main reason for me to write Adam’s Caverns.

Diverting Threatening Space Objects

Lawrence L. Lapin

Twitter: @LarryLLapin

There is talk of diverting potentially damaging space objects before they crash into the planet. Consider the challenges of doing that.

Such flying rocks would be travelling at tens of thousands of mile per hour. To intercept a meteor, it must be detected far in advance. That can be done with very large asteroids or comets. We have actually sent a space probe that landed on one. That took lots of planning.

Fortunately, large objects hitting Earth have become increasingly rare over the evolution of our solar system. But damaging objects still hit our world. We can even marvel as we watch small ones burn up in the night sky. We are lucky that really big ones—such as the rock responsible for killing off the dinosaurs—are extremely rare.

Could we actually prevent one of those? Possibly so. But that would take lots of prior planning in an effort comparable to the Apollo project to land men on the Moon. It would take a large force to re-aim the threat away from our planet.

With all of that, there would be no guaranteed success. In my book, Adam’s Caverns, all the good intentions are for naught, and Earth is hit.

Jupiter, Protector of Earth

Lawrence L. Lapin

Twitter: @LarryLLapin

Our solar system is full of large objects. A collision with any one of them could ruin our planet for life. And yet, Earth itself was created by flying objects crashing into it. All of the rocky planets were. There still remains the Kuiper Belt, full of asteroids. Won’t one of those inevitably collide with our planet?

The short answer is yes. It’s just a matter of time. Though, fossil and geological evidence show that we can expect a major catastrophe only every 50 million or so years.

You may remember broadcasts showing scientists witness a huge segmented comet crash into Jupiter. With its immense mass and gravitational pull, large objects will tend to fall into that gaseous giant before they would fall here. Jupiter has saved Earth from countless catastrophes. We can expect that role to continue.

In my story, told in Adam’s Caverns, a similar comet is captured by Jupiter, but its moon Ganymede pulls a chunk away from our protector, and that big piece plows into Earth. Most of the story is concerned with the aftermath of the ensuing disaster.

How to Survive Years in a Cavern

Lawrence L. Lapin

Twitter: @LarryLLapin

It would take years after a gigantic meteor strike for smoke and dust to settle. Imagine underground refugees waiting inside a cavern until it was safe to resurface. What would they breathe? What would they drink?

Suppose the cavern is huge enough to hold sufficient oxygen and is well-watered. What would they eat? Where would they get electricity for lights and computers?

They would have to stash sufficient food for years. That would limit the number of survivors. And for electricity, they could generate their own by pedaling stationary bicycles rigged with generators and employing rechargeable batteries.

They want to restore surface life when they emerge. For all of that, they will have to stash seeds, eggs, embryos, etc. Assuming there are no obstacles to keeping life buds viable for years in the dark and cold, who would mother the new mammals?

The survivors would have to take young female animals into their underground refuge. Monkeys, cats, dogs, and Guinea pigs might be sufficient. Through complex surrogate pregnancies and over a span of centuries, the handful of survivors, all mammals might be brought back from those four pets, including elephants and even blue whales.

Sound far-fetched? Yes, I admit that. But possible. Adam Boatwright is the driving force and inspiration for all of that.
