To flood or not to flood....In the year 2050, the Greenhouse Effect is still pushing the world toward disaster, when three unusual men-a billionaire, a lawyer, and a solar engineer-decide to fight it. Solar power satellites are their solution, but twenty years are needed to purge the atmosphere of excess greenhouse gases. Can these men overcome warped politics and defeat global warming, or is the world destined for a replay of the Noah disaster?

This book reads like a breath of fresh air. Global Warming has been the invisible elephant in the corner of our collective consciousness for a number of years now. Yet we still continue to believe that ignoring the problem and denial will indeed magically make the problem go away. Classic. If we don't acknowledge it, it can't exist. I am greatly encouraged to read a well thought out work of fiction that begins the process of proposing solutions and alternatives to this immense dilemma. The book is well written, the characters engaging, and the authors' understanding of the scientific, political and legal worlds is fascinating. A fusion of many disciplines - that reads as part spy novel, part science fiction! Great stuff!!
