Lawrence L. Lapin
Today’s planet is threatened by climate change. That is the most serious of recent challenges to the natural world, and human activities are to blame. People have been interfering with ecologies on a massive scale almost since the emergence of homonins. The abrupt extinction of megafauna in the Americas and Australia testify to the effects of human migrations to strange lands.
All species stress environments and change ecologies. That is the natural course of evolution. Somehow, Nature adapts, and balance is eventually achieved. Inevitably, some extinctions do occur.
My book, Adam’s Tiger, is a story of human-directed recovery from a massive meteor strike on Earth. Baseline ecologies are begun with geographical restorations that only provide close approximations to what once existed—before mankind began distorting things. Thus, only marsupial land mammals are replaced in Australia. Horses are returned to the Americas. Some long extinct species, such as mammoths are brought back.
Even in a new world, there are controversies with all of that.
Book III of Adam’s Chronicles moves 500 years into the future. Planet Earth is still recovering from a disastrous meteor impact. The centuries-long effort to bring back animals and plants—and mankind itself—is nearing its conclusion.
Humans make a small footprint in this renewed world, though ecological disaster is expected from explosive population growth. Changes are in the works, troubles are brewing, and Adam Boatwright worries about the future.
The long-lived geneticist vows to discourage mankind from again ruining the planet. He also takes on a new goal: to make life more robust while improving the platform for future evolution. In doing so, he would bring back animals driven to extinction by early humans, starting with woolly mammoths and saber-toothed cats.
