With Donald Trump pledging allegiance to climate change, many people fear the repercussions for the environment of this tiny blue spot we call home. In her new book The Burning Years, author Felicity Harley imagines a scenario in which a scorched Earth plays home to international conflicts known as the weather wars. Doomed attempts to control the weather instead of looking after the environment, lead to a world that becomes more fragmented than ever before.
While the remaining inhabitants of Earth are forced to design new underground habitats in order to survive a harsh, overheated world, Captain Rachel Chen, takes the worldship Persephone to Proxima Centauri, hoping that this new star system will provide a refuge for the survivors of the human race.
