It tells the story of two men, George Milton and Lennie Small.
'Of Mice and Men' is written by John Steinbeck, published in 1937.
Recent environmental studies show that disturbed ecosystems can have cascading failures, as the removal of one part of a food chain can in , and entire ecosystems can go extinct. Cascades in today's world usually begin when the apex predator is removed (by humans, and called a ), but not always. Those cascading events can happen in aquatic and environments. Food chains are essentially energy chains , and the more complex they are, the more energy is required to sustain them. The leading hypothesis for why is also an energy-scarcity dynamic. Also, the most compelling findings that I have encountered regarding degenerative disease in humans shows that if individual cells no longer have their nutritional needs met by the organism, they stop acting out their role as specialized cells and “.” It may be difficult-to-impossible for scientists to reconstruct and test cascading failure hypotheses in ancient mass extinction events, but they may have played a major role in them, if not the dominant role.
But how many have seen the 1992 film "Of Mice and Men".
Before the era of mass extinction investigation that began in the 1980s, a hundred hypotheses were presented in the scientific literature for the dinosaur extinction, but it was a kind of scientific parlor game. Scientists from all manner of specialties concocted their hypotheses. But even during the current era of scientific study of mass extinctions, much is unknown or controversial and even the data is in dispute, let alone its interpretation. Dynamics may have conflated to produce catastrophic effects, such as increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration warming the land and oceans to the extent that otherwise stable on the ocean floor and in permafrost would be liberated and escape into the atmosphere. That situation is to the , , and extinctions, as well as helping end the . Today, there is genuine fear among climate scientists that , as global warming continues and hydrocarbons are burned with abandon, which could contribute to catastrophic runaway conditions. Wise scientists admit that humanity is currently conducting a huge chemistry experiment with Earth, and while the outcomes are far from certain, the .
