SECOND NATURE Scenes from a World Remade

by | Read by John Pirhalla

Contemporary Culture • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Narrator John Pirhalla delivers the surprising, and sometimes shocking, science topics discussed in this audiobook. For instance, the passenger pigeon, extinct since 1914, is now being considered for resurrection by inserting its DNA into a current species of pigeon--shades of Jurassic Park! Speaking with the Russian and Spanish accents of the scientists involved, Pirhalla recounts what sound like far-fetched laboratory experiments: rabbits with phosphorescent plant DNA injected into their embryos to see if they would glow; human DNA implanted into laboratory mice to see if a human ear would grow on its back. Each of these experiments has already happened. Pirhalla's delivery is compelling and should give many listeners pause as they consider whether humanity is helping or harming earth's flora and fauna.
