Dr O and the Eco-X

Plastic that manmade stuff which is indestructible. Nature’s laws of assimilation do not apply to plastic. You can’t burn it, applying heat only makes it melt into a lump. Burying it in the ground won’t help since the laws of aging don’t work here. So, we make it and it piles up into one big mess. Dr. O invents a creature whose only sustenance is the petro carbons, the main ingredient. He is wildly successful and world demand becomes impossible to meet. His new conglomerate partner is greedy and Dr. O is ill equipped to fight their pressure. The only answer is to speed up production by creating reproduction in the species . At present it is a slow process using embryos. What he fears is messing with Nature’s laws. Drumming up a rationalization that if he is very careful-------- and a what the hell attitude he goes ahead. Pandemonium and confusion become the rule of the day as the new Eco-X are introduced. Things take their own path and pandemonium becomes the rule of the day. Fast moving comedy.
