Lawrence L. Lapin
Meat production in today’s world involves nearly as much grain as humans consume. On the order of ten pounds of grain protein is required to grow a pound of beef. A human population subsisting on red meat would be unsustainable. And, today’s population is already so large that it’s on the verge of destroying our planet.
My stories in Adam’s Chronicles explicitly deal with an Earth that is destroyed. But our world didn’t die a slow death while being ruined by needing humans who cannot control their numbers. Rather, my fictional Earth is hit by a massive meteor that kills most life. The culprit is a rock ten times more massive than the asteroid ending the dinosaurs.
My story begins with twenty-five survivors who take on the mission of bringing back life. Animals are so precious that people become vegetarians, making that a traditional lifestyle.
In the third series book, Adam’s Tiger, Earth’s human population has grown beyond a million. It has been 500 years since the catastrophe, and meat-eating is becoming fashionable. Some fear an unleashing of new population growth and attendant problems.
Superhero Adam Boatwright has been secretly directing restoration efforts and keeping the planet on an even keel. Would he allow meat-eating to prevail? Does he have the power to stop it?
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.
