Personal Quote:

Plague has hung over human history. The biggest human extinction was after 1492 in North and South America when the mortality rate was ninety- five per cent, which is enormous. But again, I'm giving you grounds for optimism: there were enough to continue. The five per cent who made it through are what you need to survive a bottleneck. See more »
