For those not familiar with the CV of mining billionaire Clive Palmer, you could be forgiven for thinking this sounds a bit out there, but sources close to the man himself are reporting that Palmer wants to clone a dinosaur from DNA and release it in his resort in Coolum, Queensland. Welcome…to Jurassic Palmer.
The Sunshine Coast Daily reports that Palmer has been in contact with the scientists who cloned Dolly the sheep
Now remember that this is all coming from “a source close to Palmer” so it might all be bunk, but this is the man who wants to rebuild the Titanic. I’d believe anything at this point.
If it is true, though, we could have a major incident on our hands. Cloning dinosaurs all starts with “ooh” and “aah”, but then it always ends with running and screaming, as we know far too well. Life finds a way. [Sunshine Coast Daily]
