The year is 2055, global warming has happened, and the oil and gas corporations responsible for creating it have developed a ‘cure’.
Using climate control technology, they are able to manage and create new weather conditions, but only for those who can pay.
Millions of the poor are now environmental refugees. They are forced to live on abandoned oil tankers, with no food, fresh water, with no citizenship or rights, and battling the very worst effects of global warming. But those climate control technologies are wreaking their own havoc on Planet Earth.
Unexpected volcanic eruptions, huge earthquakes, and tsunamis, all threaten to destroy everything.
A lawyer tries to fight for justice for the environmental refugees (known as the ‘hulk’ people) by bringing the evil ERGIA corporation to the high courts.
Along the way, he teams up with like-minded scientists and they try to uncover what is really happening deep down at the Earth’s core and warn anyone who will listen before it’s too late.
Why this book is on my TBR list:
It came to my attention via a Bookbub daily deal, but the title and cover grabbed my attention before I read the blurb. It’s the kind of book I’m attracted to, and I think it’ll be quite interesting to see how litigation (with its formal structure and protocol) plays off against the chaos mentioned in the book description.
