Any Jurassic Park (novel) fans out there? I'm trying to find a specific molologue...?

I don't own the book, but I did read it a few months ago. There's this one molologue in there by Ian Malcolm that I found very insightful, and I've been trying to track it down on the internet, so far without any luck. Basically, it was him talking about how Earth is going to deal with whatever factors are thrown at it and simply adapt accordingly. I believe he used the example of the start of oxygen production and its release into the atmosphere, and how that could have been considered a bad change, but it all worked out in the end. I think this molologue tied into the idea of golbal warming. It's probably closer to the end of the book than the beginning. If anyone has any other information, just let me know. I just think that it was very eloquent, logical reasoning.

It was when he was talking about how we could not destoy the earth because we did not have the power because when oxygen first apeared,it was a poison ,but the earth adapted.But we should stop polluting to save ourselves because the earth will always be here with or without us.I understand it completely because we humans think that we have so much power when in truth we are miniscule to the big picture.

I'm sorry I cannot help with the specific scene, because I don't have the book. But I'm SO glad someone appreciates Jurassic Park (the novel) for the important book it is. I read it years ago, before the movie came out, and was totally fascinated. I don't think the book has received the serious consideration it deserves. The movie is good entertainment, but it doesn't do justice to the many relevant issues Michael Crichton raises in the novel. As a book, it is structured in an intelligent, thought-provoking way, addressing contemporary concerns and sophisticated scientific knowledge, such as Chaos theory. Thanks for calling attention to it.
