    Does humanity need wings from the brain of a pig?

    Pig wings, glowing rabbits, a human ear on the back of a laboratory mouse, unborn sheep steak, and non-stick frying pans that cause testicular cancer. “The world will never be the same,” says American publicist Nathaniel Rich. In the book “Second Nature”, not yet translated into Russian, he reviews the achievements (and “achievements”) of mankind in the field of environmental transformation and, referring to numerous examples of various kinds, concludes: everything is simply terrible, but there is also good news. Dmitry Borisov talks about this book as part of the joint Gorky project and the Enlightener Prize.

    Ecosystem Debris

    Near Fort Bragg, California, there is Glass Beach, a local attraction. At the beginning of the 20th century, an utter landfill was located here. Respectable Americans littered the shore not only with small-sized solid household waste, but also with non-working refrigerators and old cars. At 19In 67, the shop was closed: the local authorities began to clean up the beach, and it soon became noticeable that the tides and the sea breeze polished broken bottle glass and fragments of car headlight lenses, turning them into smooth multi-colored glass pebbles. Garbage has become integrated into the ecosystem and has become a “natural” habitat for a number of microscopic sea creatures. Now this pebble “deserves as much protection as coastal redwood, mountain beaver or red-footed frog,” writes Nathaniel Rich.

    He begins his book with this example, pointing out the blurred line between “natural” and “artificial” of the ecosphere of planet Earth in its current state. Having experienced the impact of civilization, nature will never be the same. For centuries, humanity has conquered, bent and broken it. As a result, rivers and mountains, forests and fields, forest animals and sea reptiles turned out to be in irresponsible use by a person of the era of the developed Anthropocene. You have been at war with nature for a long time and won this war – now get what you want, says Nathaniel Rich. Eat, just don’t get dirty.

    Pig brain wings

    According to NASA, Arctic permafrost contains between 1,400 and 1,850 gigatonnes of organic carbon, most of which is in the rapidly melting upper layers. Someday it will be released to join the 850 gigatonnes of carbon already present in the Earth’s atmosphere. In terms of the greenhouse effect, this will double the level of CO2. At the same time, a sharp release of carbon (up to 50 gigatonnes) is very likely at any time.

    Such a destructive effect of human activity on nature looks like real madness, but its perception is difficult for us, because it turns out to be indirect and not instantaneous. Therefore, Rich focuses on facts of a different kind: he tells stories that are “proportionate” to us, in which specific people or research groups conduct, for example, such experiments.

    Eight babies are born to a female rabbit in the laboratory of Istanbul University, two of which glow neon green in the dark. The fluorescent protein GFP was injected into their mother’s fertilized egg. The same as that of the jellyfish Aequorea victoria – only synthetic, due to which the brightness of the glow increased by two orders of magnitude.

    Similarly, scientists from the South China Agricultural University took and acted with piglets.

    South China Agriculture University, 2013

    Sichuan University staff grew a life-size human ear from cow cartilage cells and implanted it on the back of a laboratory mouse.

    Inspired by such deeds, the actionist Stelarc also grew an ear, but on his arm. Artists Oron Catts and Ionat Zurr introduced the world to the Half-Life Steak, the earliest example of lab-grown meat made from the cells of an unborn sheep. They also grew wings from pig bone marrow (“Pig Wings”).

    And a few more examples of bio-art: Portuguese artist Marta de Menezes creates butterflies with asymmetric wing patterns, and Japanese Jun Takita has grown a copy of his brain from genetically modified bioluminescent moss.

    And so on, and so on… Nathaniel Rich’s book contains many such vivid stories. However, the tone of “Second Nature”, although alarmist, is far from hopeless moralizing on the topic “what we have done with our nature. ” Everything, of course, is nowhere worse, but certain individuals give some reason for optimism – extravagant, enthusiastic, sometimes strange. Let’s talk about them.

    Light, Only Light. Jun Takita, 2003

    Old age into joy

    On YouTube there is a series of videos with songs of an elderly Japanese man in the trendiest sunglasses and a swimming cap in the form of a jellyfish. His name is Shin Kubota. Every day after work, he spends at least two hours at a karaoke bar in the coastal village of Shirahama. He once studied a 1,611-page book with the lyrics of all the songs that are sung in all the karaoke bars in Japan, and set himself the goal of covering them all from the first to the last: “Love Me Tender”, “Yesterday”, countless Japanese ballads and children’s songs … When all this was over, Kubota supplemented the catalog with his own compositions. Seven of his author’s songs about the “immortal” jellyfish are loaded into a karaoke machine. True, other visitors sing them infrequently, and to be precise, they don’t sing at all (tracks are tracked in bars by popularity).

    Shin Kubota is a member of the Seto Marine Biological Laboratory of Kyoto University. He is the only scientist in the world who managed to breed a population of Turritopsis dohrnii in an unnatural habitat.

    These jellyfish have turned traditional notions of birth, maturation, aging and death on their head. Turritopsis dohrnii are capable of “aging backwards” – they can reverse their life cycle. Jellyfish emerge from polyps and at any stage of life can turn back into a polyp. As if a butterfly could again become a caterpillar, and then again a butterfly, but another one, re-emerging from the cocoon. The “immortal” jellyfish throws out such knees in extreme conditions – during starvation, injuries, a sharp change in temperature.

    « The surest way to cause an immortal jellyfish to age in reverse is to mutilate it. With two thin metal needles, he (Shin Kubota – Red .) pierces the gelatinous tissue of the jellyfish bell. After the sixth mutilation, the jellyfish still behaves in the same way as any victim in its place: it lies on its side and twitches. Her tentacles stopped swaying, and the bell wrinkled. But Kubota, doing what looks like outright sadism, does not stop. In total, he hit her fifty times. Medusa has long since stopped moving. <...> Kubota looked pleased. <...> The next day, an exhausted gelatinous mess formed at the bottom of the Petri dish <...> The body ceased to look like a jellyfish – rather, like an amoeba. Kubota called this stage “meatball.”

    Soon the “meatball” will turn into a polyp, from which a new jellyfish will be born. At the same time, the “immortality” of Turritopsis dohrnii is relative – these are rather fragile creatures. They regularly become food for sea slugs and easily suffocate from exposure to various organic substances.

    Shin Kubota believes that the study of these jellyfish can give a lot to mankind, primarily in the field of oncology and gerontology. In the end, this creature without a brain and a heart (and not only it, one can also recall the “immortal” sea urchins and thousand-year-old sponges) can do what highly developed homo sapiens cannot even dream of.

    However, the basis of human arrogance has traditionally been and remains ignorance. It was once believed that the human genome differs from all other species of living beings by its increased complexity by several orders of magnitude. But when the genome was deciphered in 2003, it turned out that the number of protein-coding genes in us is approaching 21,000 – that is, there are about the same number as in chickens, roundworms and fruit flies. Although genome size does not correlate with genetic complexity, studies have shown that cnidarians do indeed have a much more complex genome than previously thought.

    “There are an astonishing amount of genetic similarities between jellyfish and humans,” says Kevin J. Peterson, a molecular paleobiologist who participated in the study. “From this point of view, we look like damned jellyfish.”

    Killer Teflon

    Of course, the stories of people whose activities simultaneously benefited both humanity and the environment are, first of all, the stories of research scientists. But not only. So, in his book, Rich pays quite a lot of attention to the story about the lawyer Rob Bilot, who distinguished himself by rare persistence in the fight against a chemical corporation.

    One day Bilot was approached by farmer Wilbur Tenant of Parkersburg, West Virginia, whose cattle were sick and dying. 153 cows died. The animals bled from their mouth, nose and rectum, hair fell out, they constantly suffered from diarrhea, white thick saliva flowed, similar in consistency to toothpaste, their teeth blackened. Calves were born with crooked legs, improperly grown horns, and skinny tails. The opened corpses had a liver, heart, stomach, kidneys and gallbladder of strange colors – dark, greenish, with an abnormal texture. Tenant showed the relevant videos available for viewing and now – as well as the story itself in detail in Russian (based on it in 2019even made a movie.)

    The farmer believed that the reason for this state of affairs was the runoff from the chemical giant DuPont, which bought the site in Parkesburg, flowing into the stream. The influence of the company was colossal, so Tenant was not particularly spoken to about his dead cows. And Rob Bilot might have done the same, since “represented not individuals or plaintiffs, but <...> worked for large corporate clients. He specialized in protecting chemical companies. On several occasions, Bilot even worked with lawyers from DuPont.”

    But when Bilot was seven years old, he visited his grandmother Alma Holland in the northern suburbs of Parkersburg, where he was taken to a farm with Tenant’s neighbors, the Grahams, with whom his grandmother was friends. Bilot rode horses and tried to milk the cows – “this trip to the farm <...> was one of the happiest memories of his childhood.”

    When Wilbur Tenant began seeking legal help, he remembered a neighbor’s successful grandson who had become an environmental lawyer. And turned to him.

    Anyway, Bilot took up this case. The litigation dragged on for many years. It turned out that not only the farmer’s animals were sick and dying. Local resident Sandra Follett recalled how, as a teenager, she and her friends regularly caught two-headed frogs from a local pond. Another Parkersburg resident, Darlene Keeger, had pets dying all the time. One by one, for unknown reasons, parrots died, malignant tumors were found in dogs. The last dog Kiger, a Maltese named Dog, went blind.

    « Children laughed when Dog ran into telephone booths in the street, but stopped laughing when he began to fall from chairs and convulsed. After that, they didn’t get dogs. <...> These were not only animals. Darlene knew three men in their twenties who had been diagnosed with testicular cancer. It seemed like every kid in Parkersburg had asthma. She knew an old woman whose five-year-old granddaughter had blackened teeth “.

    Rob Bilot dug into the archives and traced this story back to 1951, when DuPont began purchasing a chemical called perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA). It has been used in the manufacture of Teflon, McDonald’s potato cartons, pizza boxes, microwave popcorn bags. PFOA has been an important ingredient in the manufacture of furniture and carpets, camping gear, raincoats, aviation fluids, X-ray film, semiconductors, adhesive paper labels, and fire-fighting foam.

    PFOA has generated billions of dollars. DuPont even built a plant to produce the substance in-house. PFOA was later found to cause testicular, pancreatic, and liver cancer in laboratory animals, among others. And in humans, too, since PFOA accumulates in the body and is not excreted.

    DuPont discontinued the production and use of PFOA in 2013 (according to other sources – in January 2012), replacing it with fluorine-based compounds designed for faster biodegradation.

    There were 3,533 personal injury lawsuits filed against the company. In total, DuPont paid about $607.7 million, and in addition, the company was fined $16.5 million by the Environmental Protection Agency for concealing the toxicity of PFOA. It was the largest fine ever issued by the Agency.

    “If you are reading about this in the first quarter of the twenty-first century, you already have PFOA in your blood.
