  • SUICIDE EARTH (#9) J.K. Ullrich -- Blue Karma | w. Van Carter

    in Environment

    (A fiction account that helps all of us see the bleak future we are creating.)
    Blue Karma (Mar 2019, Spaekona Press) by J.K. Ullrich. Came out digitally in 2015.  In the near dystopian future, water is the coin of the realm.  People steal it.  People die for it.  Empires depend on it.  Water.  It covers almost three quarters of the planet, comprises more than half the human body, and has become the most coveted resource on Earth.  And because of its sudden scarcity, humans around the world have been displaced.
    J.K. Ullrich investigates the future as a technology analyst by day and a science fiction writer by night. She published her award-winning debut novel Blue Karma in 2015, followed by the Syzygy novella series. “In Blue Karma I envisioned a near future where this plight was so common, people had developed a vocabulary shortcut for the issue. Thus I coined the term “engee”, a portmanteau of “environmental refugee”. I never imagined applying the term in a real-life context so soon after dreaming it up, but that’s exactly what’s happening.”

About Science

Millions tuned in to see the first images beamed back to Earth the night that NASA's Curiosity landed on Mars.

From astronomy to medicine and every discipline in between, science gets us talking in record numbers. Whether you know more about Big Bang Theory the TV show than you do the cosmological model, you'll find thousands of answers on BlogTalkRadio from scientists, historians, authors, TV stars and more about popular topics like biopharmaceuticals, hydroponics, geology, solar energy, climate change, forensics, creationism vs. evolution, quantum physics, stem cell research, even UFO and Bigfoot sightings.
