As a dad, I worry much about what the future holds for my children. Then again, my time frame only runs a few decades ahead, not the millions of years being mulled by some scientists.
Why am I thinking about millions of years from now? Well, my review of Year Million ran in the Los Angeles Times this week. It’s been a while since I’ve had a chance to professionally review a book and completing this one was particularly challenging in light of my recent move from Chicago.
Presuming my progeny have two kids every 36 years, which is the rate my family is reproducing at, I think I should have well over a billion descendants by Year Million if I did my math right.
