Here is the transcript of a speech Michael Crichton gave on the environmental movement.
This is a weirder piece of fiction than any of his dreadful cookie-cutter potboilers of the last 25 years. As best I can distill it, his point is “we don’t need to preserve nature because it has bugs and dangerous animals. Also, wiping out the Indians wasn’t so bad, because they fought wars amongst themselves.” Really, it makes both these points. Read it for yourself.
