The science behind Tinker's Plague has been discussed in my blog Stephen's musings. The information below is taken from it.Saving the World, Saving Ourselves a discussion on environmental technologies for your home and community.
I have been fasinated with dinosaurs since I was a child. The Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) in Toronto had a great exhibit in 2012, Ultimate Dinosaurs Giants of Gondwana Land. I took some video clips of the exhibit, my apologies for the poor camera work. I hope you enjoy my Dimo Moments.
This series of articles is taken from my blog, Stephen's musings, and is based on research I did for my novel, Tinker's Plague, published by Draumr Publishing, as well as information I've gleaned over many years of interest in environmental technologies. Like most of the answers that present themselves to the problems of human excess, singularly no one of the ideas presented in this series would make a huge difference. Collectively, I feel they have the potential to save the human race. Please note what I am trying to save because the world will go on whether or not humanity destroys our current environment. Life is likely to continue on this world despite the best efforts of some Homo sapiens to wipe it out through their adherence to superstition, greed, short sightedness, and stupidity. Multicellular life will probably survive our demise. So at most, we clever apes have the potential to set evolution back a couple of hundred million years, probably not that much, only a tick on the cosmic clock.
The real question is not whether we want to save the world; save the whales; save the great apes. The question, my friends, is do we want to save ourselves? Keeping all this in mind, I'm going to put forward suggestions, some of which are in the preview of the common citizen of earth to enact, others of which will require the participation of larger social structures.
