ANIMAL FARM SEQUEL
George Orwell’s 1945 novel Animal Farm satirises the Russian Revolution with corruption of the animals’ takeover of a farm, by the despotic totalitarianism of the pigs.
Animal Farm 2 updates us, with animals on tropical Caruba island under Soviet influence, from superpower confrontation over missiles, through the Cold War, enduring the Soviet collapse and up to modern times. The animals learn climate science and conduct an experiment with results that question the greenhouse gas infrared theory, attributing global warming to emission of spent and waste heat by humans. The farm animals want to resume mining coal, to supply electricity and plan another revolution to oust the pig leaders who are exploiting them.
Martin Knox has worked as a science teacher and energy supply chemical engineer. His story is technically authentic with unconventional, but carefully reasoned, climate science. This is an exciting, relevant and humorous work of fiction with several powerful messages.
