When the fuels which power our world are depleted, electrical power will be the medium via which solutions to our energy problems will be found. Now, imagine a world without electrical power.
In this world, the end of the fossil fuel era signals the end of humanity as we know it. There is nothing to power the machines which feed, clothe, transport, educate, and nurture us.
What could deliver us from this technological dead-end?
Only a new, different source of energy could do that. And even this could only be a temporary fix. One day it too will come crumbling down.
Veronika is about this very fix.
It is a surprising, thoughtful misadventure of evolution, revolution, and pollution.
