It’s 2028. The human race is divided on how to deal with the threatening eco-legacy of the twentieth century. Calls for a strong, centralized response mount, but skeptics of institutional power seek another way. A prominent Brazilian healer is poisoned by toxic flower-essence. The leader of the Palestinian peace movement is shot, in bed with a Shin Bet operative. A Peruvian community organizer falls 600 meters to his death. The deaths entangle a rainforest ecologist, a New Age dreamer, a Palestinian peace activist, and a U.S. Senator’s aide. The four find themselves suspects in a high-stakes game. Seductions, searches, surveillance and renditions unfold as part of a plot with planetary aims. Themes of power, self-discovery, spirit, and nature are explored in a likely near-future as the protagonists crisscross the globe. Warming! is an inspired new title in the emerging cli-fi tradition.
