Kim Stanley Robinson’s climate change thriller: Green Earth hits the shelves

Green Earth, by Kim Stanley Robinson is now on the shelves. Green Earth takes the stories first told in Forty Signs of Rain, Fifty Degrees Below and Sixty Days and Counting and combines them in a fully updated, compressed and compelling single volume. One of science fiction’s most important works, Green Earth appears as a single volume to coincide with the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris. Kim Stanley Robinson brilliantly balances the science and the rollercoaster story of political wheeler-dealing, battling scientists, beleaguered global communities, sneaky big business and government agencies. Massive floods hit Washington DC and give the climate change deniers something to think about. A highly entertaining masterwork. Here’s a taste of the story.

Catastrophe is in the air. Increasingly strange weather events are pummelling the Earth. When the Gulf Stream shuts down and the Antarctic ice sheet starts melting, climate Cialis women extremes multiply, and some winters hit like an ice age.

New U.S. President Phil Chase is on a mission: he’s determined to solve climate change. His science advisor, Frank Vanderwal, is a bit more messed up. When massive floods hit Washington, Frank finds himself living in a treehouse and in love with a woman who’s definitely not what she seems, one who will draw him into the shadowy world of Homeland Security, and other, blacker agencies.

Only science can save the day. Frank knows he has to find a way to save the world so that science can proceed.
