Tree Listener: An Eco-Thriller
Fogdrip Plant communication Food security Jumping genes Politics of science. Is the eco-thriller Tree Listener really fiction? I was on an airplane, scribbling away at a pop-science article about one of my interlocking passions--I forget now if it was plant communication , food security, genetic engineering, evolutionary biology, corporate control of government, or dowsing. I walked down the aisle to the toilet and saw that "everybody else" on the plane was reading The Da Vinci Code.
Of course! She lives in the mountains of Far Northern California in an off-grid cabin in the woods. She and her neighbors confer frequently with the trees, often about not falling on the house.

If it was that bad for dinosaurs, how did any plants survive? They live on light. The genomic record carried in any plant shows that about sixty-five million years ago plants showed an explosion of retrotransposon activity. What are retrotransposons? They are the mobile elements in the plant genome, nick-named "jumping genes," which recently have been shown not to be useless "junk genes" but rather used as "spare parts" with which the plant repairs itself and cleans up genetic errors which might lead to mutation.
Is that how they got themselves through the darkening of the earth, changing their own genetics? That's the science. The novel is the dream that spun out from there.
In the two years since I started the novel, science continues to evolve on this topic. I am pleased that it is accelerating in the same direction as my fictional speculation. As Arthur C. Clarke said, "Magic is just science we don't understand yet.
